Melissa J. De Groff, has been elected to the board of directors of the Nora-Northside Community Council (NCC). She will serve a two-year term.
“I am very excited to put my professional skills and personal passions into advancing the goals of the Nora-Northside Community Council,” said De Groff. “With so many issues facing our area – and the entire Indianapolis metropolitan area as a whole – such as traffic planning, road and infrastructure maintenance, responsible commercial development, and ensuring the future of our public greenspaces, I hope I can play a key role in enhancing the quality of life for everyone in Nora.”
De Groff, moved to the Driftwood Hills neighborhood of Nora in 2002. “We moved into a house only a few houses down the same street from where my late husband grew up, and our son was excited to attend his father’s middle school and high school,” De Groff explained. “From the start, I wanted to help protect our neighborhood, and the entire Nora area, from reckless development and ensure that everything that made Nora so appealing to us then was preserved for future residents.”
The Nora-Northside Community Council, Inc. (NCC) works to promote orderly growth and community enhancement within the Nora-Northside area encompassing 12 square miles with approximately 28,000 residents.
