The City of Owensboro Development Department is asking for the public's help in renaming the Northwest Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA). 

Officials with the development department say the ideal name should reflect the history and beauty of the neighborhood, and that it will be used for signs, pole banners, and other beautification methods as part of the redevelopment efforts of the city.

Suggested names will be accepted through May 31 via Survey Monkey. You can take the survey by clicking here.

Voting for the suggested names will be open to the public and will begin on June 1, 2021, and end on June 30, 2021. The winning name will be announced at a July meeting of the Owensboro Board of Commissioners, but an exact date and time will be announced at a later date.

The Northwest NRSA is generally bounded on the north by the municipal limits, Ohio River, West First Street, Ebach Street, and Schroth Street; on the south by the north side of 5th Street; on the east by Walnut Street and on the west by Ewing Road and Texas Avenue.

It encompasses approximately 367 acres, 1,083 parcels of property, and is primarily residential (69%), but it also includes commercial, industrial, and other public use properties (31%). The Northwest NRSA includes 25 defined residential neighborhoods.

The winning submission for the Northwest NRSA's new name will also receive a $100 gift card.

It's a cool, but beautiful start to our Thursday! Conditions will hold together for an absolutely gorgeous afternoon. Highs will still be below normal, but we'll take some high 60s under mostly sunny skies. The 70s could make a come back as soon as tomorrow!
