Please join the Merle Hay Neighborhood Association for our annual supper at 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 18, at the Northwest Community Center, 5110 Franklin Ave. We’ll have a variety of soups, sides, and desserts. If you would like to contribute something for the supper, please contact April at 515-707-6386.
After supper, we’ll hear from Polk County Supervisor Angela Connolly, who will provide an update on county business. We’ll also hear from the local developer who plans to convert the former Franklin Junior High/First Federated Church building at 4801 Franklin Avenue into a mixed-use commercial property with a boutique hotel, restaurant, office space, and other possible uses. The new property owner plans to file for rezoning soon, and MHNA’s October 18 quarterly meeting will allow residents and other stakeholders to ask questions and provide feedback.
The meeting portion will include public safety updates, neighborhood news, and a look ahead to 2019. Please mark your calendars and invite a neighbor. We look forward to having a great turnout!
