The College Park Neighborhood Association (CPNA) is planning to fund a large community project in 2017. Because of active participation by the people of College Park, the CPNA has completed large projects in the past. For instance, have you ever wondered who is responsible for the gateway signs to College Park?
The College Park Neighborhood Association initiated and funded the four gateway signs that mark our boundaries at four locations: Par Street and Edgewater Drive, I-4 and East Princeton Street, West Princeton Street and US-441, and Edgewater and Colonial drives.
CPNA provided the avenue for fundraising. Each sign cost approximately $15,000.
At the Par gateway, a plaque on the back of the sign honors community members who donated to the signs. David Rose, John Kwiser and Robert Twigg spearheaded the project, designed the signs and built the brick walls.
The CPNA continues to maintain the signs and landscaping and continues to meet the challenge to irrigate our gateways.
Best Brownies at Sunday in the Park
Congratulations to the Best Brownie winners at the CPNA Sunday in the Park event. Rebecca Sweet won first place, 10-year-old Sadie Derenthal won second place and Norma Aldridge placed third.
This was College Park’s 26th annual Sunday in the Park, and we have watched second and third generations return for community fun, food and rides.
Thank you to the Orlando Magic for their support. And additional thanks to major underwriting sponsors Anne Rogers Realty Group and Dubsdread Golf Course.
