I was one of the original SoRo NC members, serving at the request of my late aunt Anne Gross, one of the driving forces of the original formation of SoRo (who recently deceased). Her vision was to have a neighborhood group to provide input to the city council as a constant source of direction to counter balance the political interests of the city. Her concerns at that time were the lack of parking, lack of play areas/ parking, and the need for more of a sense of community. All those areas still need attention.
I have lived in the community since 1997, with my wife and daughter. In fact, my daughter is married and we have a grandchild and her family also lives in our community.
