Cherokee ComeUnity Hub:  Open-Space Infrastructure for an interactive plaza

Seeds of Change:  Growing a Sustainable Community

WasabiNet:  Putting Cherokee on the Grid

The three proposals listed above (in alphabetical order) have been described this way:  “All are positive concepts with great potential to bring the neighborhood together….”  Yet only one will be awarded the $25,000 seed money from the Incarnate Word Foundation to carry it forward.

So which do you think will most benefit the Benton Park West neighborhood and nearby areas?


If you attended the BENTON PARK WEST NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION MEETING on Thursday, NOVEMBER 20, you heard a presentation from each of the groups and had a chance to vote.

If you haven’t voted yet, the easiest way to do it is right now ONLINE:  just go to the upper right hand corner of the screen and click on the link that says, “VOTE on the 3 neighborhood proposals.”  It will give you a description of each proposal as well as a link to the powerpoint presentation that the group used at the BPWNA meeting.

For people who do not have access to computers, voting can also be done via PAPER BALLOTS which contain a description of each proposal.  So if you know someone who would like a paper ballot, they can contact me at 314-629-4086.  Volunteers will also be distributing paper ballots in BPW and on both sides of Cherokee St.

VOTING ENDS ON DECEMBER 31, 2008.  Results will be announced in early January.
