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.

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.
 
Our online and ongoing ONDNA News is below this section on this page. It is composed of news stories posted as they become available rather than on a fixed schedule.
 

Additional Web Locations

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