Hi neighbors!

Remember that this Sunday’s block party will be from 3-7 pm at Adams and Filmore. This even is rain or shine! Please bring a dessert or a side dish to share. We hope to have Lucky Dog’s food truck there as well. Please reply if you would be willing to bring a table, and cross fingers for showers scattered far away from Glenwood Brooklyn!

Below are the meeting notes from our most recent meeting:

UDO – city council initiated HOD-S. Look for an information table at the block party to learn more about this initiative, and to get involved.

Median project and crosswalk. There has been progress on this and we will learn more about what monies are available to beautify the medians. Please keep in mind that we’ll be calling for volunteers eventually to help with the work.

Park cleanup – will be monthly. The next park cleanup date is scheduled for Saturday, June 27 from 9-10:30 am. Meet at the picnic shelter, and please RSVP by replying.

Broughton parking issue. Please look for more information about speaking to a representative of Broughton at an upcoming open forum about improving the Broughton-neighborhood relationship through better parking practices and solutions.

Neighborhood Safety. Continue to call 911 when you notice suspicious behavior. Every time, at the time.

Home Tour. An officer meeting will be before the next open forum on Tuesday, June 16 at 6 pm. Please plan to attend if you will be joining the tour committee. Please note that we need a committee of at least 4 to ensure that the tour is held this year!

Many thanks! We look forward to seeing many of you this Sunday!

Rachel + leadership team
