Haunted Hike T-Shirts!
  Do you love the Euclid's annual Haunted Hike? Have you been looking to add a great new shirt to your Halloween shirt repertoire? Yes to both? Well then, I have great news! We will sell Haunted Hike t-shirts the night of, but I'm excited to announce we are taking preorders now.  Click here to Order online now, otherwise you'll have to fight for what's left at 13th and 13th on the night of the hike. They are $13 if you let me know by 10/13, but $15 after that. The scarier one is the adult version, the basic one is for the kiddos.

Dr. MLK Jr (9th) Street – Speed Control.
Euclid St Paul’s neighbor and homeowner Graham White is leading an initiative to control excessive speed on Dr. MLK Jr (9th) Street. He was able to convince the City to conduct a traffic study this month. While the posted speed is 35 MPH, the studied revealed that actual speeds were between 43 – 45 MPH. To help improve pedestrian safety, Graham also requested that the St Petersburg Police Department monitor speeds and issue citations in the corridor; this resulted in 18 tickets in one day. Thank you Graham for your proactive approach to neighborhood safety. In the long-term, the ESPNA Board (in collaboration with surrounding neighborhood associations) is working on a larger initiative to apply “Complete Streets” design improvements to the corridor.
City of St Petersburg Residential Zoning Regulations Update.
The public is invited to join in the review of the City’s Residential Land Development Regulations (ZONING RULES). The City will be holding a series of workshops over the next eight months to review the zoning requirements in its residential neighborhoods. This effort will include a review for potential changes to support and further our current design standards.

New Committee Forming - Volunteers Needed

The Helping Hands Committee

ESPNA is excited to announce a new committee for the upcoming year!  The Helping Hands Committee has been added to unite residents of ESP in an effort to assist our neighbors in need.  The committee will be working toward providing assistance to residents who have specific needs in the form of labor or service, creating guidelines and managing requests for assistance, and connecting residents with city assistance programs, charitable foundations, as well as one another to share resources, collaborate, and help each other.

Examples of possible projects:

  • assisting neighbors in need of home maintenance

  • helping residents in times of crisis (death in family, illness, fire, etc.)

  • creating systems for tool sharing, meal trains, pet/child care, etc.

If you are able to volunteer and be a part of this committee, please contact Jo-An Thomas by emailing We will be organizing the first meeting just after the New Year where the committee will work together to set goals and plan for 2016. Your help is greatly appreciated to get this committee up and running and set ESP apart as a neighborhood where people are truly connected and willing to lend a helping hand.

 Volunteer Time
Our Volunteering: What We've Been Up To
  Last month we put a call out to the neighborhood asking people to share their volunteer efforts for our grant ‘match’ to light our neighborhood. We will not only light the neighborhood with our efforts, but we will serve as a light in our own community.  MORE...
Record Your Volunteer Hours
  While the city is reconsidering grant awards we should continue to record our hours so we will have banked a head start. If you do anything on benefit of the neighborhood; attend general meetings, clean the ally of over growth or trash, or walk your dog while wearing a crime watch vest, etc. It all counts. Please record it.
