Parkwood board members accept award at NUSA conference

Neighborhoods, USA named Parkwood Neighborhood Association in Shoreline as 2014 Neighborhood of the Year Second Place Winner at its luncheon held May 23 at the 39th annual NUSA conference in Eugene, Oregon.

Parkwood Neighborhood Association (PNA) won the award in the Social Revitalization category for creating a neighborhood "dream team" Board over the last year. The group, made up primarily of young professionals who are moving their families into Parkwood, has a unique combination of skills that make it a nimble, productive team.

In one short year the group hosted three large neighborhood social events; surveyed neighborhood residents about their interests; established bylaws, goals and a work plan; invited speakers to address neighborhood issues of crime prevention, surface water and local park management; helped establish a citizen's group for light rail station area planning; sent a newsletter to all residents; and established a website, Facebook page, and email list for communication to the neighborhood.

Parkwood Neighborhood Association is one of 14 established neighborhoods in the City of Shoreline. To learn more about Shoreline's Neighborhoods Program, contact Neighborhood Coordinators Nora Smith at 206-801-2253 or Rosie O'Brien-Ochs at 206-801-2256.

Parkwood boundaries are Aurora Avenue (west), Interstate 5 (east), N 160th St (north), and N 145th St (south).
