The Grove Place Association is an active group which includes as members all persons who reside, own property, or own or operate a business or non-profit organization in the area of the City bounded by N. Chestnut, Delevan, Scio and East Main Streets. Meetings are open to all and everyone has a voice. Those who pay annual dues become voting members. The Grove Place Association is concerned with issues affecting of the neighborhood, including safety, art, plantings, development, neighborhood vitality and homeowner values. We have regular meetings at the YMCA Metro Center during the fall and winter, a Holiday dinner at the Eastman Dorms and an annual Octoberfest picnic in the fall. At each meeting there is a program presenting information on a topic of interest or concern to the neighborhood. Especially if you are new to the neighborhood, meetings are an easy way to be connected with people who have common interests. They are not long and are followed by an informal gathering with refreshments at a member's house. Last year our meetings included a meeting with city officials to change our zoning, the RDDC presentation of their BID proposal and a preview of the new Hart's Grocery Store opening in the neighborhood.
