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.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
