Current Projects

The Dixieland Neighborhood Association is working on a number of projects and issues.

If you are interested in helping with any of these projects or have ideas of your own please email HistoricDixieland@gmail.com

Projects

Neighborhood Watch Signs

In early June 2020, 20 new signs were placed in the community, mostly to replace existing signs. In response to requests from neighbors for additional signs we are continuing the project by allowing residents to sponsor signs at a location of their choosing.

Century Homes

Like the century homes project in Lake Morton neighborhood, Dixieland is working to create a similar project here. Stay tuned for more information!

Garden Flags

A flag design has been chosen after gaining nearly 65% of the total votes! Flags have been ordered and are available for purchase in the merchandise section of the website.

Taste of Dixieland

This is an exciting new event being tentatively planned for the fall of 2021. This would be a food festival highlighting the local eateries in Lakeland, mixed with fine arts to take place on beautiful Lake Hunter. Stay tuned for more information!

T-shirts

VP Sam Caban created a number of potential t-shirt designs. In the near future we would like to find a supplier to create shirts for one of the designs and begin selling on our website.

Identification Sign Restoration

We are currently working on placement of a second sign to match the Historic Dixieland Sign located at the corner of Hillcrest Ave and S Florida Ave. Both signs have been cleaned and repainted by Jason and Hope Hagerman
