Welcome to the Nichols Improvement Association
The Nichols Improvement Association (NIA) is a non-profit organization of volunteers chartered with helping to preserve the heritage and distinctive character of the Nichols community. We sponsor many family-oriented events throughout the year. Membership is available to Trumbull residents living in the Nichols Fire District.
NIA Beautification Phase 1
We are pleased to announce that Phase 1 of the NIA Beautification Program is set to start shortly. The scope of the project includes new Oak trees, American Hollies, a Red Bud, and a Colorado Spruce. We will also be planting Hydrangea, Vibumum, Witchhazel, Mountain Laurel, Spirra and small Yews. Big thanks go to the committee for selecting a vendor and for all of the hard work that has been done to get this project completed.
NIA Playground Update
The new mulch has been delivered and the playground looks amazing and is ready for the kids! Thank you to the team at Greensfee Landscaping for spreading over 30+ yards of certified playground chips.
