Want a New Years’ Resolution that’s easy to keep?

Join or renew your membership in the North Main Community Association! We submitted a proposal for a dues increase from $10 to $20 for residents and $10 to $30 for businesses. Of the 136 who responded, only 11 voted NO to the increase. (We indicated that a non-response would be considered a YES vote, assuming that if a member felt strongly against it, they would respond). Thus, the proposal passed and will go into effect immediately.

We’ll be sending out renewal notices soon. Please renew as soon as you receive them before you forget or they get lost in that pile of mail you keep meaning to get to. In addition, we will be enclosing a small decal for your car, your door, or wherever you want to put it, to let folks know that you support your community by being a member of NMCA. These decals are being provided by a generous donation from Palmetto Plating Company, Inc.….so, no dues are being used to pay for them. There are different stickers for residents and businesses. We hope you will use them. If you need additional decals, please let us know. We hope this will increase visibility and membership.

New Social Committee

In an effort to give our members more and better events and activities this year, we are assembling a new social committee.  We have a chairman and the names of a few of you who have expressed interest.  And we know that in years past, many have expressed an interest on their membership form in being involved in social events.  But we also know that things change, people move, etc.   So….we need folks to step forward now and become involved in coming up with fun ideas of how we can help our members get to know each other better.  If you would like to take part, please email Hunter Cutchin, our new President, at NMCAPresident@gmail.com and provide your contact info.  Thanks in advance for your help.

Business of the Month

As we mentioned in the last issue, we only started introducing new business members a couple of years ago. We have several businesses that have been members and supporters for many years. This month we will start highlighting those businesses.

The Woodworking Studio of Michael P. McDunn. With thirty years of custom woodworking experience, Michael McDunn works closely with clients to draft and finalize design. All custom furniture pieces are crafted on-location at theMcDunn Studio in Greenville where they reside in many local homes as tomorrow’s antiques. Michael McDunn crafts master-level custom furniture and performs precise antique restoration. For thirty years, his Studio has provided highest quality woodwork for regional individuals and businesses. And it all started when he was growing up… making wooden furniture for his little sister’s dolls.

In Michael’s own words: “The work I do evolved from my need to survive in a part of the country where, for many years, contemporary furniture styles were quite unacceptable. This forced me to design furniture that was fitting for both 18th Century as well as more modern environments. As a result, much of my work has an Asian feel incorporating free-form pieces of wood that may well have been destined for mulch, firewood or a landfill. From the beginning of my involvement with using an obscure piece of wood to make something lovely and fine, everything has fallen into place to keep me firmly entrenched in woodworking, sometimes as art, sometimes as craft. I feel that working with wood, in all its forms, is a way of preserving it and to showcase its versatility and extreme beauty.” The studio is at the intersection of North Main and Rutherford Road. Check out his Facebook page for more information on classes that are offered to the public and pictures of some of his work.

Façade Improvement Program includes Stone Avenue and Wade Hampton

facadeThe City of Greenville’s Commercial Corridors Facade Improvement Program (FIP) is still providing financial and technical design assistance to commercial property owners and business owners in targeted commercial corridors for qualified facade improvements. The purpose of the FIP is to support the revitalization of the City’s commercial corridors by stimulating private investment in high-quality improvements that enhance the appearance of buildings and properties and eliminate blight and non-conforming design standards. If you are a business on Stone Avenue or Wade Hampton, you should have received this email from the city and/or NMCA.

Development Update

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, the Beach Company has started work on the project at the corner of Stone and N. Main. The company’s website is live and retail announcements will be forthcoming. They expect to have some units ready in about a year.  Their second phase (Rowley and Stone) was on Council agenda on Jan 12.

The North Main restriping project has been awarded to Panagakos Asphalt Paving and the city is currently in process of negotiating a contract.  The project construction is expected to take 3 weeks to complete with the schedule ultimately being dependent upon having favorable weather and temperature conditions. There was a significant savings on the North Main Road Diet which will allow us to include the cross-walks that we have discussed for the Stone Academy’s SRTS program. We are currently discussing the proposed cross-walk and sidewalk improvements with the contractor. (Email, Amy Doyle)

How to Keep Up With the City

We sometimes receive questions regarding how to keep up with all the development that is going on, the city guidelines, permits, exemptions, ordinances, etc. Well…it’s hard! And, yes, most of you are probably not interested in this….until infillit’s happening in your back yard.   At a recent city council meeting, council unanimously approved an amendment to the land management ordinance allowing outright (not conditional) permitting of cottage subdivisions in areas zoned R6 and R9, which is most of the North Main area. While we feel this is not consistent with the character of this neighborhood, there is often little any of us can do, other than make our feelings known.

Someone asked how to find out more about a house next to them that was being demolished to make way for one or two houses. One part of the problem here is that if it’s only one or two houses, it does not need to go to the Planning Commission, so there are no public notices. The decisions are made entirely by staff. When a property is divided into three lots or more, or a zoning change is required, it does have to have a public hearing before the planning commission and information about the project is posted on the city website as an attachment to the meeting at which the proposal will be considered. Also…those residents within 500 feet of the proposed development will be mailed information about the public meeting.

The ordinances, even with the infill ordinance, are very hard to figure out from just looking at the buildings. The minimum side setback is 5′ and it is even hard to check that without going on the site to measure it, even if you can figure out where the property line is. It is hard to check things without having a site plan and building plans, and we just don’t have access to them. Even something as seemingly simple as the building height (which did get reduced in the task force meetings) is not actually simple as it depends on where the house is in regard to the street and how to set a line halfway up the gable, which is where the measurement is taken. And we can’t measure with a tape measure in the field.

There is a city site of FAQs on planning and zoning that may provide some information. You can also check on the city council agendas and the planning and zoning applications and agendas for upcoming meetings to find out if there is something of interest to you. And if you feel strongly about an issue, contact your council members and make your voice heard. (Thanks to Bob Bainbridge, outgoing NMCA President, for some of the above information)

Recycling Holiday Trees and Lights

The City of Greenville is once again sponsoring its annual “Grinding of the Greens” Christmas tree recycling program. For the convenience of city residents, trees can be placed at the curb for collection on regularly scheduled pick-up days or treetaken to one of four convenient locations for recycling. All trees must be free of debris such as ornaments, tinsel, ribbons and lights to be recycled. Drop-off locations include: Holmes Park, Timmons Park, Gower Park and West Greenville Community Center.

These locations will be open through January 24, 2014. Curbside pick-up within the city limits will continue for as long as needed. Trees and trimmings are ground into mulch at Twin Chimneys Landfill. Call the Twin Chimneys Landfill at (864) 243-9672 for more information. All holiday boxes, tissue paper and wrapping paper (except foil-lined) can be recycled at the curb and at the City’s Recycling and Environmental Education Center at 800 East Stone Avenue. Visit http://www.greenvillesc.gov/publicworks/AboutRecycling.aspx to learn more about the City’s recycling programs.

Beautification Projects for the Neighborhood

triangleIn an effort to continue our beautification efforts around the community by landscaping traffic triangles and entrances to the community, NMCA came up with the idea of improving the appearance of the triangle at the corner of Townes and Ashley where the tree and roses are now planted but have not been improved in many years.  NMCA successfully encouraged the city Parks Department to focus effort on improving the triangle with new landscaping. We suggested that conifers be planted which would provide cover for the birds, as well as a bench for weary walkers trudging up the Townes Street hill.  We also want to plant bulbs and perennials. The city agreed and submitted a grant to Palmetto Pride for this beautification project and we are happy to report that the grant was approved for $4,451, so work can begin there as weather permits as a cooperative project between the city and NMCA.

We have received one suggestion from a member for another area which could use some work. If other members know of a triangle or entrance into the neighborhood that could use some TLC, please let us know.

How Do Birds Survive the Cold?

Most birds respond to the cold in similar ways, but the temperatures that trigger their behavioral and physiological responses vary widely. In general the bigger the bird the easier it is to cope with cold temperatures. Some behaviors and physiological responses that help them conserve heat include:

  1. robinTucking feet and legs into their breast feathers.
  2. Fluffing their plumage. This traps air, creating an insulating layer.
  3. Finding shelter. Birds use dense shrubs and tree cavities to conserve heat.
  4. Increasing their metabolic rate, producing more body heat
  5. Shivering (produces more metabolic heat)
  6. Roosting closely together with other birds. (Up to ten bluebirds have been found to roost in the same tree cavity on cold nights)
  7. Some birds like Black-capped Chickadees can lower their body temperature at night and enter regulated hypothermia, saving significant amounts of energy.
  8. In addition, many birds store food and have exceptional spatial memory to relocate it, even a month later. (from the on-line resource, Birds of North America)

 

Remember, often providing fresh water in those cold winter months can be more important than food for our feathered friends. You can get heaters for bird baths to keep water from freezing. For more information, visit http://www.birds.cornell.edu/celebration/challenge/survival-1/how-do-birds-survive-winter

Hummingbirds and Torpor: Last year we talked about how more and more hummingbirds are being seen here in the winter…usually individual birds. This year we have two who have decided to overwinter here so we have been busy keeping the feeder thawed and the syrup fresh. Hummingbirds save enough energy to survive cold nights by lowering their internal thermostat at night, becoming hypothermic. Torpid hummingbirds exhibit a slumber that is as deep as death. Awakening from torpor takes a hummingbird approximately 20 minutes, with the timing apparently determined by its internal circadian rhythm. What amazing creatures!! To read more, click here. (Note: if temps are just below freezing, something like the squeeze-activated hand warmers stuck to the bottom of the feeder might work.)

 

January Gardening?

I just received my first gardening catalog last week. It’s hard to think of gardening when it’s this cold, but now is a good time to peruse those catalogs and think about what you want to plant in the spring. There are other things you can do this time of year.

Pruning – Winter is a good time to prune most trees and shrubs.  However, do not prune azalea, dogwood, forsythia, redbud and rhododendron – they should be pruned after they bloom, since they set blooms in the fall on the previous season’s growth. If you prune now, you prune off the part that will bloom.  Almost anything that blooms after June 1 (except oakleaf hydrangea and late-flowering azalea cultivars) can be pruned safely; however, make sure there is no green wood which could actually start sprouting new growth if we have a prolonged warm period. See Pruning Trees and Pruning Shrubs for more information.

Tree Planting – The winter months when trees are dormant are excellent times to plant.  Be careful that you do not plant them too deep or with too much soil amendment.  See Planting Trees Correctly for information on the proper way to plant a tree.

Transplanting – This is also a good time to move plants that have overgrown a site or that don’t fit the microclimate of that site (sun, shade, etc.) Plants are dormant and will undergo less stress if transplanted now. Be sure to plant at a similar depth from where they came and get as much of the root ball as possible. http://www.clemson.edu/extension/county/laurens/yard_garden/01_january.html

 

Weather Tidbitscold

According to climate data, the average maximum temperature for Greenville in January is 52.0°F, the average low is 32°F and the average precipitation (rainfall) is 3.82”. January is typically our coldest month.

Looking at records from 1890 to January 2015, the maximum high was 82 on Jan 14th in 1911. The highest low temperature was 62 on Jan 14th, 1932. The minimum high temperature was 20 on Jan 30th 1966 and the minimum low was -6 that same day. Maximum precipitation (rain) in a 24 hour period was 3.94” on Jan 8th in 1942. Maximum snow was 12” on Jan 7 back in 1988. http://www.dnr.sc.gov/climate/sco/index.php .

 

Have you Checked out the ‘Flu Near You’ Website?

fluDid you know there is a website and mobile application that allows the public to report their health information using a quick weekly survey? Using participant-reported symptoms, ‘Flu Near You’ graphs and maps this information to provide local and national views of influenza-like illness. ‘Flu Near You’ is a site administered by Healthmap of Boston Children’s Hospital in partnership with the American Public Health Association and the Skoll Global Threats Fund.

How can you participate in ‘Flu Near You’?   All you have to do is register. On your first visit to https://flunearyou.org, you will be asked to enter your gender, month and year of birth, zip code and email address. Once you confirm your registration, by clicking on a link in an email that will be sent to you, you can complete your first health survey. Every Monday after that, you will receive an email with a link to your health survey where you report any symptoms you had in the past week. It is really fast and easy!   The more users the better – flu activity reported to ‘Flu Near You’ has been fairly consistent with other flu tracking methods.

Flash from the Past

From last month: Two of Greenville’s best known figures. Both have amazing histories and we encourage you to go to the links provided and read more about each one.

mystery1Charles H. Townes was born in Greenville, South Carolina, on July 28, 1915. He grew up on the outskirts of Greenville on a twenty-acre farm near what is now St. Francis Hospital. After studies at Furman, Duke and Cal Tech, he joined the physics department at Columbia University. In 1951, while sitting on a park bench, he conceived the idea for what would become the laser (Light Amplified by Stimulated Emission of Radiation). He realized that an amplified emission of optical light could produce an intense beam of energy powerful enough to cut steel and precise enough to measure exact distances or perform surgery. In 1964 Townes was awarded the Nobel Prize for the crucial work in quantum electronics that led him to develop the maser. Next time you are having surgery, using a laser printer, watching kids play laser tag, or listening to reports of laser beams in space, you can take pride in the fact that a Greenville boy made them all possible. http://www.hmdb.org/Marker.asp?Marker=8112

 

mystery2Max Heller was born in Vienna, Austria on May 28, 1919. Leaving his Nazi-occupied homeland in 1938, Max came to Greenville to work as a stock boy at Piedmont Shirt Co. His first paycheck was for $10 with a dime taken out for Social Security. He founded Maxon Shirt Company in 1948 and retired in 1969, devoting his time to public service. In 1971, after two years on the Greenville City Council, he was elected and served two consecutive terms as mayor of Greenville. Heller’s major endeavor as mayor was to reverse the decay of Greenville’s core. He became a driving force for environmental protection, beautification, slum clearance, economic rejuvenation, downtown revitalization and public-private partnerships. Under his leadership, Main Street became pedestrian friendly and European village-like with street lights, green spaces and colorful flower planters everywhere. Max Heller has been called “The Father of Greenville” and a man of “vision, integrity, and compassion. In an attempt to control youth violence in Greenville, Max formed a Youth Advisory Committee and appointed as chair a young man who was president of his high school student body — Knox White who in 1995 became mayor of Greenville. http://www.hmdb.org/marker.asp?marker=26979

 Fire on Earle Street

Many have asked if it’s been determined how the fire started. The investigation is still open.  Thankfully, no one was hurt.   However, there was significant property damage.  Following the fire, the City Fire Department “blitzed” West Earle Street.  Over 60% of homes do NOT HAVE WORKING SMOKE ALARMS.  If you would like your house checked for properly working alarms, please call 467-2273.   Over 900 fire alarms have been installed with this new program.   You can visit the department’s web site for info.

We also want to thank our residents for their generosity! The victims were so touched and very thankful to know so many people cared. The donations of money, checks and gift cards totaled close to $3000. We also distributed at least 4 SUV loads of clothes and toys. Thank you all so very much. This just shows what a great community we live in!
