Announcing…South Norwood Neighborhood Association

Russell Johnson’s neighborhood picnic last month brought residents and several Xavier and City officials together to find solutions to the behavior problems of Xavier students living in Norwood. The group of residents that attended the picnic have now given themselves a name: South Norwood Neighborhood Association (SNNA).

Russell provided us with a description of the group: This is a group of Neighbors from South Norwood, Ohio. We are committed to working on issues that impact our area including Xavier University relations, rental property conversions, street maintenance, parking, and local schools.

Anyone who like to join SNNA is invited to their next meeting this Sunday, November 16 at 5:00 p.m. at 3908 Regent Avenue. The group can be contacted at In preparation for the meeting, some of the members are obtaining copies of off-campus policies at other colleges and universities, preparing examples of exemplary student houses, landlords and students as well as a list of problem houses for Xavier to investigate.
