Due to the recent escalation of after-hours incidents around Sahara Cafe, the Public Safety department of City of Raleigh has encouraged the neighbors of Glenwood Brooklyn to pursue permit parking on Devereux, N Boylan and Hinsdale Streets.  This strategy would be up to the neighbors, and we have scheduled a meeting next Tuesday to discuss the details of such action.

Please join us Tuesday, June 4 from 6 to 7 pm at Jenkins Memorial church.  City officials will be present to explain the details and to take our questions.
