Strength in unity … perhaps.


For the searchable record, newspaper coverage of what should be a no-brainer.

Neighborhood groups consider merger, by Daniel Suddeath (News and Tribune).

The East Spring and S. Ellen Jones neighborhood associations discussed joining forces to form one unified group during a meeting Tuesday.

If a decision is made to merge, the association could be called Midtown, though a name to better historically represent the areas could be chosen.

Note that I qualified this by inserting the word “should” in the opening sentence. My household supports the idea, primarily because it stands to terrify the city’s Luddites.

The respective groups will vote at their meetings in July.
