Old North Davis Neighborhood Association (ONDNA)

Sunday afternoon, June 23, 2002, a group of Old North residents assembled at the Hattie Weber Museum of Davis for the purpose of forming the Old North Davis Neighborhood Association. Bylaws were reviewed and adopted. A seven-member Board of Directors was nominated and elected. Afterwards, the founders lined up for a celebratory photograph.

Founding Group

Our Objectives

The objectives adopted in the ONDNA bylaws that day guide what we do today. These objectives include:

  • to protect and promote the best interests of Old North Davis -- the City of Davis area bounded by B, 7th, 5th and the railroad.
  • to promote and strive for improvement in the area's public facilities and services.
  • to promote and encourage positive community and civic spirit.
  • to foster civic communication, good will and friendship in the area.
  • to cooperate with government officials and other civic and public organizations for the general welfare for the area and the City of Davis.
 

Our Activities

On this website, we present details on ways we are seeking to realize the above objectives.  

The left-hand sidebar lists folders and files on each of the on-going projects that flow from our objectives. Metaphorically, each of those headings is the name on a drawer of a very tall filing cabinet. The headings are quite varied, but they are alike in being aspects of improving and of celebrating Old North Davis.
 
  

Additional Web Locations

Links to our three additional web locations appear below the activities list in the left-hand sidebar.
 
 

Sign-up to Receive ONDNA Information 

Under City rules for recognized neighborhood groups that function democratically (of which the ONDNA is one), all Old North residents, landowners (residents or not), and established organizations are automatically members of the ONDNA with rights to vote in elections and otherwise to know about and to participate in ONDNA activities. http://cityofdavis.org/city-hall/city-manager-s-office/neighborhood-services/neighborhood-associations  
 

If you have not already done so, one good way to act on your automatic membership is to sign up for ONDNA BOARD of DIRECTORS and/or GENERAL INTEREST listserv emails.

••• BOARD of DIRECTORS Listserv Email:

If you are "policy-wonk" inclined, you can sign up to receive the boring emails that Board members commonly send one another, here:

                                                                                                          http://www2.dcn.org/mailman/listinfo/ondboard

 

••• GENERAL INTEREST Listserv Email:  

If you only want to know about ONDNA meetings and special events and happenings and not otherwise to be bothered, this is the email list for you:

                                                                                                  http://www2.dcn.org/mailman/listinfo/oldnorth 

 

With Your Sign-up, You Can Also SEND Messages to the ONDNA

If there is an aspect of Old North you especially like and want to celebrate or one you think needs improvement, people on both the Board and General lists will attend very seriously to what you tell them. Moreover, as a member of a list, you can view all past emails and view the entire roster of list members.
