From the Board Susan Bennett, NPNA President, 350-3848
The NPNA Board Received the following letter and wants to share it with all our neighbors:
I’m nine years old and I like going to the park because there are food trucks and there are hills that I like to use my grass sled on. My favorite thing to do there is getting my face painted. I also like to play with the kids there. That’s why I like the park.
Thank you so much for your letter. We are happy that you enjoy the park on Wednesday Food Truck nights. We wish you much success in the new school year.
The NPNA Board
The NPNA Board met on August 9th at the home of Susan Bennett.
The Wednesday Night “Netherwood Bites” program has been a big success and will continue through October.
Tony Prosser gave the crime report for the last two months. He noted a decrease in the number of auto thefts and break-ins but an increase in the number of citations for suspicious persons. A change in reporting methodology used by the website CrimeMapping.com has resulted in an increase of citations for disturbing the peace. Peter Burton has arranged for two patrols by off-duty APD officers in the coming weeks.
The remodeling of the house on Harold continues at a steady pace. This house was the target of vandals recently and Susan Bennett contracted the owners and the office of City Councilor Isaac Benton.
Herb Denish reported the city is now conducting a traffic study on Indian School Road. Late night weekend racing on Indian School between Carlisle and Edith is an ongoing major concern.
A liquor license hearing was held on August 16th for the proposed Nikle Restaurant in the old Alpine Sausage building. The license would allow beer and wine sales “for the consumption of drink only upon the property.” Board member Sara Mills attended the meeting and the request was deferred until a later date.
Chuck Maguire mentioned that a film crew was in the area near the ponding area at Cutler Ave. and Apache Court. Chuck also mentioned that his efforts to get a second park bench for Netherwood Park are continuing.

Montezuma Elementary School is now back in session. The first bell in the morning is at 8:47 so you can expect traffic in Indian School Road to be heavy between 8:30 and 8:50. School gets out at 3:38 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays Thursdays and Fridays. Dismissal is on 12:30 on Wednesdays only. The Board urges you to keep these times in mind when planning your activities and to be aware of the flashing school zone lights.
Netherwood Park Bites food trucks will be on the east side of Netherwood Park every Wednesday night beginning at 5:00pm through October.
