Kenton Women's Village Open House
June 7, 2018 –
Interested in learning more about what's been happening at the Kenton Women's Village (KWV) over the last year? Stop by the Historic Kenton Firehouse (8105 N Brandon Ave) between 6-8pm on Thursday, the 7th, to meet some of the women who live at the village, those who've moved into permanent housing and project organizers of the village.
This is a great opportunity for neighbors to connect with the KWV ahead of the Kenton neighborhood vote to extend the KWV beyond the initial one-year duration at the next General Meeting on June 13th from 6-8pm at DISJECTA (8371 N Interstate Ave).
Project organizers for the KWV have vowed to only continue on with Kenton neighborhood support, and the city-owned land used for the KWV remains under contract to be sold to Transition Projects Inc (TPI) to build low-income housing. That project has been delayed, though, and isn’t expected to break ground until early next year, offering additional time for the KWV to use the site. As a result, the KNA Board intends for neighbors to consider approving up to another year of the KWV in case TPI experiences additional delays.
All persons that are 18 and over and live, lease, rent and/or own any real property within Kenton are eligible to participate in the neighborhood vote by attending the June 13th meeting.
