Update from Matt Brown, our new Board President

Happy New Year! I look forward to serving as president during 2009 and am very excited about ANA’s initiatives for the coming year. A native of southern Wisconsin, I work as a city planner in the northern suburbs and have lived in Audubon Park for nearly three years. I was drawn to the neighborhood’s central location, vintage housing stock, attractive open spaces, and diverse business community. Our neighborhood’s mix of new and long-time residents provides a wonderful sense of community.
