Northwood Civic to Take Up Deed Restriction Issue

The new owner of the property at 5114 Castor Avenue has applied to the Zoning Board of Adjustment to convert the property to a triplex. This is a direct violation of the Berk Deed Restriction which has preserved the value and integrity of our neighborhood for nearly a century. The applicant (owner) will present their plans to the Northwood Civic Association and neighbors of Northwood at the June 21st meeting.

It is extremely important that all residents attend this meeting to voice their opinions and concerns and question the applicant as to their intent for our neighborhood. If you are unaware of what the Berk Deed Restriction is comprised of and what value it has to the value of your home, I urge you to attend this most important meeting and we will discuss its content.

Also at the meeting will be the new organizer of The Friends of Northwood Park group. This is a new resident to Northwood who recognized the value of our park and took action. Just last week this group had 6 city trucks at Northwood Park filled with garbage and articles from illegal dumping. Please attend to hear the plans this group has for Northwood Park going forward.
