Roseway Resident Survey Results

Several months ago our committee on re-branding set out to survey as many Roseway residents as were willing.  Several hundred participated and provided information on their demographics, household and other questions about diversity and open ended questions regarding their general feeling about our neighborhood.  Posted below is a link to the full PDF of survey respondents.  The Roseway Neighborhood Association will be evaluating the data to better help guide our future direction of the board and to better understand what topics and issues are important to you, our fellow residents.  We plan to have more information at our October neighborhood meeting as well as in future newsletters.

Roseway Garden Walk this Saturday – June 28th

Roseway Neighborhood Association is initiating a new event to foster closer connections between neighbors, to encourage an exchange of ideas about gardens, to illustrate the potential for beautification, and to celebrate our community.

Join us this Saturday, June 28, 2014 from 11:00 till 3:00 through several Roseway residents that will open their gardens for us to view. Many of us have walked by these gardens and appreciated the plantings and landscaping from the street. Now we have an opportunity to see full gardens and perhaps discuss plants and ideas with the proud caretaker. Most gardens in our neighborhood are small and some gardeners have consequently made careful plant and hardscape selections while others have taken a more natural and seemingly random approach to their gardens. Garden style is a matter of individual preference and character, but every garden is a unique adventure. Perhaps seeing what others have created will inspire us with ideas for our own gardens. Perhaps the walk might even motivate us to actually start those projects we’ve been postponing till a “better time”. But it will most certainly be a great opportunity to connect with and enjoy the neighborhood.
