The Historic Old Northeast neighborhood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003. The concentration and diversity of early 20th century homes built on a grid of narrow brick streets with granite curbing and hexblock sidewalks, all shaded by a mature tree canopy, are hallmarks of the neighborhood. Maintaining these characteristics is a key objective of the neighborhood association, as the economic benefits of preservation are well known. The Granada Terrace neighborhood, a Local Historic District designated in 1988, is located within the boundaries of Historic Old Northeast, in addition to eleven local Landmarks.
HONNA’s Planning and Preservation Committee works with City staff, City Boards, and City Council members to advance the goals and objectives identified in the Neighborhood Plan. Members review variance applications, often attending Community Planning and Preservation Commission(CPPC) meetings, City Council meetings, and Development Review Commission (DRC)meetings to advocate for or against proposals that affect the neighborhood.
The Committee also developed and oversees the Tree Canopy program.
