SAN DIEGO -- The North Park Community Association (NCPA) elected officers and were updated on a number of important neighborhood issues, including battling graffiti, a citizens law enforcement patrol and this year’s Bird Park Summer Concert Series at its annual board meeting, held April 24 at Queen Bee’s Art & Cultural Center, 3925 Ohio St.

By affirmation, four board members – Nikki Berdy, Lynn Elliott, Omar Passons and Victor Flake – were reelected. New members elected were Sean Karafin, Alan Bennett and Jeff Kucharski, and they all join current board members Edwin Lohr, Mike Berry, Rimah Khouri, Chuck Van Hise and Coral VanLandingham to form a 12-person board.
