Old North Davis Neighborhood Association (ONDNA)

Having just formed the ONDNA at the Hattie Weber Museum the sunny Sunday afternoon of June 23, 2002, this founding group of Old North residents has gathered outside for a celebratory photograph.

Founding Group

Our Objectives

The objectives adopted in the ONDNA bylaws in 2002 continue to shape what we do today. These objectives are:

  • 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 Website

On this website we assemble  and present details on the variety of ways we are seeking to realize the above objectives. The left-hand sidebar is divided into the three sections, lettered A, B, and C, in terms of which our activities are organized.

A. Projects.

At the top of the lefthand sidebar, Section A contains folders or 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.
 

B. Websites.

We have the three additional web locatoons that are listed and linked in Section B
 

C. Listservs and Opportunities to Participate!

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. If you are an Old North person, one good way to begin to act on your automatic membership is to sign up for ONDNA Board and/or general interest emails, which you can do in section C, to the left. And then, of course, get active in whatever Old North civic improvements interest you!

News and Upcoming Events.

News stories are in the area just below and announcements of upcoming events are in the right-hand sidebar.
