Decatur Height Neighborhood Association Transition Team

Hello Neighbors!

We wanted to let everyone know that after a period of inactivity, the Decatur Heights Transition Team is in the final stages of re-starting the Decatur Heights Neighborhood Association.  Turns out, it was more work than we thought and it’s slow going, but e wanted to keep everyone informed on what was going on.  The transition committee is made of up Natalie Snedden, Michael Hagan, Deanne Thomas, Kristi Meuller and David Draper.  We are currently working on getting a tax ID and applying to be a business entity for the DHNA.

We will be hosting a neighborhood potluck/membership drive on May 4th.  In addition, we are currently working on freshening up the DHNA website.

Our goal is for an open and active Neighborhood Association and we can’t do that without participation from our wonderful neighbors! So, whe we do announce the potluck, please come on out and join us!

If you have any question, do not hesitate to contact one of the members of the transition team.  We can be reached at

Suburban Plaza Permit Updates


Selig and Walmart have now received all needed permits (land disturbance, demolition, and building) for Suburban Plaza’s redevelopment. Demolition and construction are slated to begin in early 2013.

The cross-neighborhoods committee continues to meet regularly with the Selig folks. We do not have a plans update scheduled for December. For all official Suburban Plaza information, visit MANA’s site:
