Crown Hill Village Action Plan We love it when a plan comes together! Some of you may remember the days when we packed into the gym at Small Faces gym and milled about discussing Crown Hill's future. Those crowded workshops aren't coming back yet, but the Community Action Plan at that we crafted during those gatherings is moving again! The Community Action Plan is the result of a massive collaboration between City offices, neighbors, and business owners. In February of 2020, the completed plan was presented to the Mayor's office for signature. Unfortunately, before we could get it [...]
Sunny Skies for the Return of The Crown Hill Garage Sale The annual Crown Hill Garage Sale was a popular event hosted by the Crown Hill Neighborhood Association. We were excited to revive this fun, low key event and can't wait for next year! This year we partnered with the venerable Olympic Manor Sale and we appreciate them letting us join their incredible sale! Some folks had a hard time deciding if they should put out their own sale or cruise the Manor Sale. Next year, we will spread the deals around and plan for a different day. [...]
Cristie @ Little Free Peep Show and a new Peep Show the first of every month! by: Phil Scroggs March of 2019, Cristie Kearny — Crown Hill Village resident since 2003 — hatched a sweet idea.

Fill the Planters Fulfill the Dream The question: What is the craziest idea you can think of for creating innovative use of public space? Without considering logistics, what is the boldest action you can take to spark joy and build community? The answer: Shut down Holman road for a huge block party to celebrate Crown Hill. Ok. So that idea was quickly dismissed even in that first "be visionary" step of community development that created the Holman Grove. We made big plans, some that we made into reality the summer of 2019 with three street festivals. We [...]
Nicolas @ Red Baron Railroad by: Phil Scroggs It’s Sunday afternoon in Crown Hill Village, and I’ve got a train to catch. Luckily, the Red Baron Railroad is just a short walk from my home in Crown Hill. I’m not bringing a carry-on bag; there would be nowhere to store it. I am bringing my camera. This is definitely going to be an Instagram moment. The train that will be departing soon can’t be boarded, because it’s 1:29th scale. Its route is one lap around the conductor’s yard. If you could hop on board, you wouldn’t get to see much of Crown [...]
