Letter from our Board President

On behalf of the Board of Directors for Harambee Neighborhood Improvement District #7, we are honored to have been elected to serve this great neighborhood. Our NID’s purpose continues to be allocating special assessments funds as yearly home repair grants to neighbors for projects that invest these dollars back into our community. Since the summer of 2018, we have successfully funded 24 home improvement grant projects that have impacted 24 families located within the NID boundaries. Our residents and staff are a critical part of these success stories!

 

Since the NID is a resident-lead initiative, exercising your voice is what will determine the future of the NID’s impact and its ability to improve the quality of our neighborhood. Your ideas on how you’d like to see these improvements developed are always welcomed and we hope that you will join us during our open board meetings. As the Board of Directors, along with our administrative staff at Riverworks Development Corporation, we will continue to seek and develop long term relationships that leverage resources to revitalizing homeownership in Harambee. It will be this type of community collaboration and  forward-thinking that will determine how we support families in maintaining the value of their homes against economic challenges.

 

This an exciting time in Harambee, which has a rich history of being a great place to live and do business. Please feel free to contact myself or Riverworks staff for more information about how your organization or household can get involved. We continue to count on our residents and community of stakeholders in securing additional resources in order to successfully support our current and future homeowners.

 

Sincerely,

 

Cordella Jones, Chairperson
