The Rountree Urban Conservation District and
The Rountree Neighborhood Association
The Rountree Urban Conservation District (Rountree UCD) is a zoning overlay district with special standards that may exceed that of the city, recognizing and protecting the unique nature of the area. The UCD is comprised of the properties in the area roughly defined by National Avenue on the west, Cherry Street on the north (including properties on the north side of the street), Delaware Avenue on the east (including properties on the east side of the street), and Grand Avenue on the south (including properties on the south side of the street). For exact boundaries, please refer to the site map.
The Rountree Neighborhood Association (RNA) is comprised of member residents and owners of properties in the area as defined by National Avenue on the west, Cherry Street on the north (including properties on the north side of the street), Glenstone Avenue on the east, and Catalpa Avenue on the south. For exact boundaries, please refer to the site map.
Formed simultaneously with the Rountree UCD in 1985, it was first known as the Rountree Area Advisory Council. Renamed in 2003, the organization works to preserve and advance the neighborhood. Specifically,the RNA functions as a liaison with the city, keeping abreast of city policies and actions that affect the neighborhood as well as communicating the needs, issues and vision of Rountree to the city government.
The RNA meets the third Tuesday of every month, typically in the evenings at Rountree Elementary. The general membership meets every quarter (January, April, July, October), while the Executive Board meets all other months. All residents and owners of properties in the Rountree UCD are welcome to attend. The RNA seeks volunteers that are residents and owners of properties within the Rountree UCD to serve on the Executive Board in December. One-year terms began in March. For further information on the organization, see the RNA bylaws.
Many neighbors living outside the RNA boundaries inquire about becoming a part of the RNA. While the RNA takes this as the nicest of compliments, we encourage bordering neighborhoods to form associations of their own to communicate with the city.
