Business Association Notes – November 2023

82nd Avenue Business Association
By Nancy Chapin

We are working hard to create an area that our community wants to visit to eat, shop, go to the movies, school and check out other activity opportunities such as The People’s Court at 2700 NE 82nd Ave. In fact, The People’s Court will celebrate the last weekend of the Around the World in 82 Dishes event on November 4! The 82 Dishes Passport program will continue throughout Winter, Spring and Summer.
We added two new rose gardens in October. One is at the Central City Concern building and the other at Springwater Carts. We have a few more roses to plant if you have a location for them. Contact with questions or for information.

Foster Area Business Association
By Jeff Lynott

The Foster Area Business Association recently unveiled its long-planned billboard atop the historic Phoenix Pharmacy building, 6615 SE Foster Rd. FABA worked with local artist (@wokeface) from Higher Self to design the advertising image, and the result is a bright and cheerful image that proclaims Foster as a place to “eat, drink, shop and play.” This campaign will coincide with FABA’s upcoming holiday promotion, where we’ll incentivize eating, drinking and shopping with a digital passport that rewards people for supporting local businesses. Stay tuned for more info on this campaign, which will run between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Event details will soon be posted online at

Hawthorne Boulevard Business Association
By Nancy Chapin

The Boulevard Beautification Bunch comes out the second Saturday of every month, 10 am-noon. Neighbors and businesses meet either in their own area or at Dairy Hill Ice Cream, located on the corner of SE 36th Ave. and Hawthorne Blvd. The next date is November 11. There are also Hawthorne area volunteers and city staff from PEMO keeping up with the illegal graffiti and tagging in the District.
We are looking forward to the many neighbors, visitors and community members that celebrate Hawthorne as a favorite shopping, entertainment and eating destination. Watch for Lights on the Boulevard and festive window decorations during the winter holidays. Mark your calendar for Sunday, December 3 to join your neighbors for holiday ornament-making, music, Santa Claus and hand-made holiday gifts to purchase and appreciate. We will be at Rivermark Credit Union’s parking lot from 2-5:30 pm.
