Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprise Hosts Fall Block Party On Holly Street

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprise (CNE) will host a fall block party on Saturday, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on North Holly Street in the Bushtown neighborhood.

“It will be a great time for Chattanooga community members to engage in fun-filled fall activities, get to know their neighbors and tour some of the affordable housing options available close to downtown,” said Abby Garrison, CNE director of strategic initiatives.

Festivities will include fall food, including caramel apples, and activities, such as face painting and cornhole. The event will be hosted in a series of five homes on North Holly Street that CNE helped develop and are currently available for purchase. After touring all five homes, qualified participants can enter a drawing to win up to $20,000 in homebuyer incentives. CNE will also have a homeownership specialist on-site to discuss the benefits of homeownership and share resources available at CNE to help buy a home.

Parking for the event will be available at Orchard Knob Middle School. For more information, please email info@cneinc.org or call 423 756-6226.
