Had a good meeting at Booster's this week. Alderman Maurice Taylor was our speaker & wish to thank him for making it even after his car broke down! Thanks Maurice!
We discussed some issues with Maurice, some of which may affect you.
We first discussed trees in the neighborhood & the need for pruning or possible elimination of some tress in city owned areas. We reported to him some of the severe damage left behind as a result of this years storms. We are going to start surveying trees in the neighborhood that may pose a hazard. If you have, or know of a tree, that is questionable to public safety please let us know so it can get on the list for evaluation. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also discussed the rules pertaining to "Rooming houses", this will be an ongoing issue, discussions are open and will continue. Please email me your concerns or any issues you may be having with a rooming house anywhere in NLR. A rooming house is defined as a house that rents out "rooms" to more than 2 families on a weekly basis.
Last but not least we started discussions on Gems & junk Yard Sale and the yearly Block Party. After Sonja Miller graciously searched the Razorback schedule for this fall we came up with these dates to save.
Gems & Junk Yard sale- Saturday Sept 17th. as always we ask participants to contribute $5.00 towards the ad. Gazette also provides free Garage sale kits.
Block Party- Saturday Oct. 15th from noon-3pm. This year we are also going to have a Food Drive to benefit the NLR Salvation Army pantry.
We will have our first planning meeting at my house 216 West 6th st on Wednesday July 27th 6:30 p.m. We hope to keep this meeting short but need as many folks to show up as possible.
There is no August Boosters meeting so we will schedule the next planning meeting at the meeting on July 27th.
Remember- Let's Keep Boostering!
