DRESSING THE ABODE

WHAT’S INSIDE?

North Park homeowners get fancy and quirky with their homescapes

Planning North Park’s Future After months of hearings and amendments, the updated North Park Community Plan is entering its final phases. While the update provides long-term guidance on zoning, parking and historic district designation, there are still challenges straining the community. PG. 2

New Local Business in Bloom North Park plants a new business in its quaint artistic neighborhood. Native Poppy and Communal Coffee recently opened on University Avenue adjacent to the North Park Nursery. It’s an innovative business concept — a coffee shop that specializes in hybrid infusions that shares a space with a flower shop. PG. 12 Can you count the flags planted at this patriotic house at 3628 Alabama Street?

North Park homeowners have a keen eye when dressing up the front of their homes, like the ones who imbedded a retaining wall on Arizona Street with shells and tiles to form a mermaid-under-the-sea motif. Or the owners on Alabama Street who decorated the outside of their house with American flags. Keep your eye out for these and others, all described by Susan Taylor on PAGE 10 LEFT: A wide-eyed owl keeps watch over this house at 3711 29th St.

Pet Health Food Store Now Open Tori Rosay, owner of pet health food store Dexter’s Deli, says many people treat their dogs like a garbage disposal, feeding them nutrient-poor, processed food. Not her customers, though. PG. 13
