3/12/18 | CHNA Neighborhood Meeting | NEW LOCATION

Please join us on Monday, March 12th for our Neighborhood Meeting.  We will be meeting at 7:00 pm in the TASCO Teen Center Building in the Huggins-Stengel Sports Complex at Crescent Lake Park. Parking is available, and the facility address is 1320 5th Street N.

The purpose of this meeting is to continue the discussion on whether or not areas of CHNA should consider applying for local historic designation.  A representative of the City of St. Petersburg’s Historic Preservation staff will be available to answer your code-specific questions in terms of window replacement, door replacement, fence repairs, additions, demolition, and other topics.  This individual can also share more about the application process and timeline for potential adoption. Once this meeting has adjourned, the CHNA Board will add the questions posed to our Q&A educational document, and then work to distribute the information to residents.  Members of the CHNA Board will share information about recent developments on the cooperative negotiation process with the Church of the Beatitudes and developer JMS Consulting.

Pizza and soda will be provided.  Historical designation is an important issue that could have a long-term impact on our neighborhood and its residents.  Please join us on Monday, March 12th to learn more about this important topic.

Saturday | February 24th | 12:15 pm

In honor of Valentine’s Day, the National Trust for Historic Preservation is encouraging you to show your love for historic buildings by “bombing” them with paper hearts. And we have just the place for you here in Crescent Heights: For over 50 years the Church of the Beatitudes facility at 2812 8th Street N. has served as community meeting space, polling location, and valued neighborhood partner.  Unfortunately, it now may be time to say goodbye as the building has been sold and there are plans in place to redevelop all or a portion of the parcel.

Regardless of what’s to come, let’s celebrate all of the memories and bomb it with love!  Please join us on Saturday, February 24th at 12:15 pm for a Heart Bomb event.  Bring your own paper heart or we’ll have spare paper hearts to share. Write a message of love or gratitude on the heart and we’ll take a group photo in front of the facility to show our love. Afterwards the hearts will be left for the congregation to thank them for sharing their facility with our local neighborhoods for so many years.  Hope to see you there!

2/24/18 | CHNA Play-Out Event

CHNA will provide sidewalk chalk, bubble machines, a temporary tattoo station (the new alternative to face painting), and some fun music. Bring the kids to play with old friends, make new friends, and enjoy some Florida sunshine. Bring any outdoor toys to play with or share: There is space for bikes/big wheels, jump ropes, balls, and all kinds of fun stuff. Guests welcome!

2/12/18 | Special Neighborhood Meeting: Landmark Designation Application for Church Facility

Special Neighborhood Meeting: Landmark Designation Application for Church Facility
February 12, 2018 | 7:00 PM | 780 25th  Ave N

ChurchPlease join us on Monday, February 12th for a Special Neighborhood Meeting to discuss if CHNA, in partnership with the Saint Petersburg Preservation Inc. (Preserve the ‘Burg), will submit a joint Landmark Designation application for the current Church of the Beatitudes facility on 2812  8th Street North.  The meeting will be held at 780 25th Avenue North. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 pm with the meeting starting at 7:00 pm.

Originally built in 1928, the condition of the building and its historical significance has caused many residents to question if the property should be deemed historical by the St. Petersburg City Counsel. Submitting a Landmark Designation application will prevent a demolition permit from being issued by the City while the historical significance of the building is considered.

CHNA bylaws contain special rules for obtaining a quorum and also for voting when a Special Meeting is called. All in attendance at this special meeting will be welcome to voice an opinion; however, only current dues-paying members of CHNA will have their votes counted and officially recorded. If you would like your vote on this matter to be officially recorded, you can pay your dues at the Special Meeting, or in advance through Pay Pal or by mail (P.O. Box 76051, Saint Petersburg, FL 33734). Your $20 annual membership funds all of the neighborhood events and helps to make our neighborhood such a great place to live. You can RSVP to the Facebook event for this meeting here.
