Chatham Square Association

Fair Haven is a Diverse Community with a Rich History and a Beautiful Waterfront

The Economic & Community Development group met on Monday, Oct. 21, 2019, from 6 – 7 pm at Quinnipiac Marina, 315 Front Street. Present: Stefanie, Christel, David H., Lee, Lisa, Kirk


RIVERFEST: Date set for Sat, May 16, 2020. Christel reported on GNBM’s request to regarding sound system (hire separate sound person or possibly have band designate one of their members to deal with it for additional fee). Everyone is ok with having GNBM do it; Christel will follow up with Erik regarding miking different types of groups like Music Haven kids.


BANNER PROPOSAL: We discussed having Joanne from Lots of Fish art cooperative do a banner for us. This would be a community event, preferably held outdoors, so probably next spring. We discussed various locations, including the Strong School and Q-River park. We definitely want one banner announcing Riverfest that could be hung up temporarily a month or two before the event, and possibly a second banner saying something like “Welcome to Fair Haven” that could be attached permanently to the fence near Middletown bridge. It would be great to hang the Riverfest banner across the street, but we need to find out what city rule and fees are for that. Christel will ask Joanne if she knows. Lee will ask Doug Hausladen about posting banner on Middletown.


GARDEN SIGNAGE: Christel pitched a proposal to create and post signage about CSNA at various garden sites that are maintained by our volunteers. For example, near Middletown Ave bridge, at Dover Beach, at Lewis street playground, and elsewhere. Objectives: Provide positive visibility for CSNA; reach out to additional volunteers; better communicates with city Parks Dept. Best option is a water proof aluminum sign (plastic or laminate, similar to those used in political ads, tends to disintegrate) that can be attached to fencing or a post. Proposed wording (editorial suggestions welcome): “These flowers and shrubs are planted and maintained by local volunteers from Chatham Square Neighborhood Association, with support from Urban Resource Association. HELP MAKE OUR NEIGHBORHOOD BEAUTIFUL!! To volunteer or for more info:” Everyone liked the idea, and Christel will get price quotes.
