Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, our annual meeting and elections will be moved up one week to Tuesday, November 13, 2018, 7pm at Central Presbyterian (3501 Campbell).
All neighbors are invited to join in on this meeting! Neighborhood Association members will vote on candidates for open board positions as well as the 2019 HPNA budget. Members must be in good standing at least 30 days prior to the meeting to participate in the vote. The proposed budget and nomination committee’s recommended slate of candidates are included for your review below.
The nominating committee has recommended a slate of candidates to fill the open Board positions. Nominations may also be made from the floor.
It’s warming up again – and we know what that means… yard sales!! Participate in our great neighborhood event by hosting a garage or yard sale, walking the neighborhood to meet your neighbors, and scoring some great deals! The Hyde Park Neighborhood Association will be putting up yard signs, advertising, and create a map of HPNA association member sales. Volunteers are needed to help set out and pick up yard signs. Any neighborhood association members households who would like to be included on the map need to fill out this form here: https://goo.gl/forms/
Spring is finally here and the warmer weather means more people will be out and about: bicycle riding, walking, running, doing yard work, and playing at parks! Spring also marks project season for many long-awaited bike projects and pedestrian improvements in KCMO. These projects will not only expand KCMO’s growing bicycle network, but also provide broader benefits to our neighborhood such as: much needed traffic calming, pedestrian improvements, safer intersections, and overall improved access for bicycles and pedestrians. This blog post is brought to you by Maggie Priesmeyer Green, North Hyde Park Rep and Director of Programs at BikeWalkKC.
Join us on the Hyde Park Community Bike ride on Saturday, May 12!

Many Hyde Parkers live in the Transportation Development District (TDD) for streetcar extension — for most of North, Central, and South Hyde park, the district line goes down the middle of Campbell street (those on the east side are not included), and south of 45th down the middle of Harrison. If you live in the TDD, you get to vote in the following elections:
PHASE 1 – VOTING TO CREATE THE TDD
PHASE 2 – ELECTING TDD DIRECTORS
PHASE 3 – VOTING TO FUND THE TDD
March 5 – Residents who live inside the boundaries of the TDD can begin applying to receive a ballot for the mail-in election.
April 3 – Applications for ballots to vote in the funding election are due by 5:00 pm.
May 1 – Ballots for the funding election are mailed to voters who requested them.
June 12 – Ballots for the funding election are due.
June 22 – Court certifies the election results.
In order to vote, you must request a ballot. Visit the ConnectKC website to request a ballot today.
Today marks the official launch of the Hyde Park Neighborhood Association’s NEW website! When our website was first built in the early 2000s, it was a great tool for its time – loaded with information, much of which you can expect to be posted here in our “History” category (you’ll have to come back to read it!) However as the years have gone by, times have changed and we desperately needed an updated website that would be beautiful, easily navigable, and quickly updated by Board members.
Enter the Hyde Park Communications Committee, comprised of Board members Lydia DeMonte, Troy Batson, Chad Moore, and Clara Keller, as well as neighbors Stephanie Smith and Anthony Carver. Together we determined what exactly Hyde Park needed in a website, and put out an RFP. Ultimately we chose neighbors Dave Kimmis and Tom Free to design and build this beautiful website which you are looking at today!
Please take your time looking through our website, and check back with our blog often for updates. There are still updates to be made, and we are looking for additions to our Communications Committee to keep the website current and contribute content. If you are interested in joining the committee, please contact Lydia DeMonte at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks and I look forward to sharing our neighborhood with you!
