Crown Hill Neighbors and Crown Hill Business Association are joining forces! We are looking for residents and business owners who want to join the board.
Our neighborhood is growing and we want to create an organization that connects the residents and businesses of Crown Hill. Both organizations have partnered on projects in the past, and have the same goal to create a vibrant neighborhood. We want to combine efforts to create an organization that supports the entire community.
The Neighborhood and Business associations both accomplished so much as separate organizations. From neighborhood clean ups, to the community garage sale, and even the purchase of the Crown Hill Center.
The new combined association will kick off with a public art project – details to come. We will also continue to organize the Crown Hill Market, a weekly event that creates a gathering place for neighbors and a showcase for hyper local makers and artisans. The market was a neighbor’s idea that gained momentum and support. What is your big idea for the community?
Join the new Crown Hill Association board and be part of our neighborhood’s momentum!
E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in being on the board or you want to contribute in some other way (publicity, website, social media)!

Mynah and I were out for our morning walk a few minutes before 6 this morning. We were walking south on 14th between 105th and 103rd. Mynah suddenly dropped into what I call her stalk. Then I saw it about 100 ft south of us, tall ears fully up, lanky legs ready to flee, completely aware of us. Then it scampered very quickly into a yard.
Canis latrans, how I knew ye in an earlier life, killing sheep and chickens on the farm in northern North Dakota. You were my bane, seemingly making our hardscrabble life even harder. We hunted and killed you in kind of a cathartic rage at your destruction, knowing full well we had no hope of reducing your numbers or the devastation wrought on our livestock. Yet now I stand in awe and wonder, seeing that little bit of wildness in our urban society where every thing is in its place or it’s pointed out with indignation.
Watch your pets like small dogs and cats, and your urban livestock like chickens and ducks. There is a skilled hunter in our midst.
