Second Quarter Newsletter

Hello Deer Park Residents!  The summer season is officially upon us. We have many events and new things coming up in the city that we are very excited to let you all know about. 

Summer Events

As of the beginning of July, we have three concerts left in our Summer Music in the Park Series for 2018, at Chamberlin Park. Don’t forget to bring your coolers, chairs, kids, pets, etc., as these concerts are family friendly events! July 21st will include Sonny Moorman, August 18th we have String Theory, and closing the series on September 15th, Frogman.

Park Board Chairman, Dan Mueller, and the rest of the park board have been working closely with The Bridge of Hope Church to put on several family activities for kids throughout the summer. “Kid’s Blast” will be specifically for the younger ages, between 6 and 12 years old, and “Alive Night” will be geared more towards teenagers between the ages of 13 and 18. These events will feature music, games, food, and fun team build activities.

Deer Park’s annual Days in the Park festival will take place August 3rd and 4th this year. The festival will run from 6 PM to 12 AM both nights, finishing off the festival on Saturday night with “Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks”. The festival is a family friendly event, with rides and games for the kids and other events for the adults.

Road and City Updates

Earlier this year, the city began working further on the streets, which was postponed due to the heat and weather, and will be resuming shortly. This will include Matson, Gail, Frontenac, and the total reconstruction of O’Leary Avenue.

The Blue Ash Road project is progressing, with bids out for Market Analysis of the Business Development.

An Urgent Care will be opening in the old First Financial Bank on Blue Ash Road by August 1st.

Please remember, it’s been an extremely hot and humid summer so far. Please keep an eye out on your neighbors, whether elderly, handicapped, broken or no air conditioning, and just in general. This heat can be deadly, and should be taken seriously.

Hope to see you all at Music in the Park and the Days in the Park Festival! Have a happy, healthy, and safe summer.  

 

                                                            Sincerely yours,

                                                            Mayor John Donnellon
