KNA is at a Critical Crossroads and We Need You
- Published: 23 November 2022 23 November 2022
The Kenny Neighborhood Association represents all residents of our neighborhood. KNA is your go-to source for advocacy with the city, for social events, and for creating a sense of community for all.
- We provide input on city initiatives and work with our elected representatives to share neighbor views.
- KNA sponsors popular events throughout the year like the Ice Cream Social, Kenny Festival, New Neighbor and Renter Welcome dinner, Spring Clean-up, and Fire & Ice Skating Party.
In 2023, KNA will stand at a critical crossroads. One road takes us forward but requires investments from neighbors and others. The other road leads to less programming and advocacy.
KNA, and all neighborhood associations, have depended on funding from the city and donations from residents to operate. Unfortunately, Kenny and the other neighborhoods face significant reductions in city funding starting January 1.
In the past, KNA received $25,000 per year to support activities. In 2023, that funding will fall to $14,000. We do have reserves that we will use sparingly to cover expenses, but the reality is that we need to find new revenue to ensure that we remain a viable association.
Our other choice is to significantly cut programming, but we are hoping to avoid that route.

If you are interested in joining a group of volunteers to start cleaning up the Kenny school grounds, we’d love to have you join us on July 24 and after!
Kenny School Clean-Up Day
Saturday, July 24
east side of Kenny school
Please join a group of volunteers in cleaning up the east side of the Kenny school grounds. All are welcome - this is a combined group of Kenny School parents and staff, Kenny neighborhood residents and friends, and Master Gardeners.
What we'll do: clean gardens, pull weeds, remove volunteer trees, prune shrubs and start the groundwork for preparing a pollinator garden.
What gardening knowledge you need: basically, none! Master Gardeners will create clean-up plans, answer questions, and highlight how/what needs to be completed.
What to bring: power trimmers (and people to operate them!), shovels, weeders, clean tools, garden gloves, bags, trucks for hauling garden debris.
Who to bring: fun people who are interested in preparing Kenny School for a successful back-to-school and making the school grounds something that is a beautiful spot within our community.
Kenny Raingarden Tour
- Published: 26 August 2020 26 August 2020
We are happy to share some of the results of our 2019 and 2020 Kenny Raingarden Program. We had hoped to host an in-person garden tour, but are going with a self-guided tour in this time of COVID-19. The attached pdf highlights several of the gardens around the neighborhood- each one had unique needs and solutions. Each garden is visible from the sidewalk or street and we ask that you not go onto private property. Also please remember to socially distance and wear a mask!
