Positive Neighborhood Tone: An East Davis Example (53)


Enterprise environmental columnist John Mott-Smith recently wrote about the environmental activities of people in his East Davis neighborhood.
The specific environmental actions described engaged me less than the fact that so many people agreed to have themselves named and described as part of that neighborhood.



That seems to me a real testimony to neighborhood spirit and positive tone.

I reproduce the column here because such expressions of “neighboring”--of trust and regard-- might be of interest to Old North residents.

Let me also mention that there may be at least two other neighborhoods in Davis that have developed a similar positive tone: Elmwood Drive and Reed Drive.

Each of these areas has, for example, a privately circulated historical directory of homes and their families.       JL
