Welcome Moms of the Museum District! This is a group for all Museum area moms who have young children and want to meet other moms, go to or arrange play dates, have your children play with other children, and just have some fun! We can do fun things such as park dates, play dates, crafts, hikes, walks, Mom’s Night Out, meet at coffee shops, community events, community service, book club, and anything else you may suggest. We encourage members to host play dates and suggest great ideas for meet-ups within the community. In our beautiful town, there are so many things to do and so many wonderful moms to meet! Most of our members are mothers of kids ages 0-5. We strive to create a friendly and supportive environment for all of our moms and hope to see this wonderful group provide connections, support, and life-long friendships! Interested in joining? Just request to be in the group, tell us a little bit about yourself and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
It’s a closed group so anyone who is interested should request to be added to the group and Katy Trudeau, as the admin, will approve it. She asks that you please email her via Facebook or at firstname.lastname@example.org letting her know you are a resident of Richwood Place (for security reasons)

The Neartown Association invites all Neartown/Montrose residents and Association members to a community meeting this Saturday, March 14th. The purpose of this meeting is to update the community on recent meetings and discussions concerning the possibilities for a Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) in Montrose. As a follow-up to the Town Hall meeting in December, the city is in the process of holding meetings on this topic with Montrose civic leaders and other stakeholder groups. At the community meeting this Saturday, we will share the latest information that we have received on the options for Montrose participation in a TIRZ, discuss pros and cons, and hear your questions and concerns.
We look forward to seeing you at this important community meeting.

Twenty-two or 23 years ago, I would have never lived here. It was bad. You were seeing carjackings, you were seeing a lot of assaults, a lot of violent crime.
We had pockets of gang activity. We had some on Stanford and we had ones off of Welch. There was Woodhead, Mandell, and Colquitt. The apartments in the 1700 block of Portsmouth are essentially where criminals lived. I pretty much stayed there in 1996 and 1997. There were so many places they could run – they’d bring cars in, strip them in the back alleys.
Think about what’s changed in Montrose. Property value has gone up, there are a lot of different people living here now. These new homes came in, and they tore everything down so the gang members had to move somewhere else. Once that project went down everything changed.
Richwood Place will have a recycling pickup this Monday, March 2.
The City has changed our schedule from the B week to the A week, so this time we have service two weeks in a row. Then we go back to recycle pickup every second week with the next service on March 16.
