Fall is officially here but put down that rake, leave the leaves, and join us for the October General Meeting of your Neighborhood Council. We meet on Wednesday, October 1st, at 6:30 pm in the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture. 
What a great excuse to use for not getting that yard cleaned up!

Your Neighborhood Council also wants to remind you that Elections for Council Officers is just a few months away.
 If you want to give something back to your neighborhood, consider a position on the Executive Committee.

Neighborhood Reader Board

The new Neighborhood Reader Board was installed on the west side of the Elk Public House this morning. It was a long time coming, but well worth the wait.
Check it out for neighborhood news, events, and meeting information.
A big "thank you" goes out to Marshall Powell and his partners at the Elk Public House for providing a prime location!
Another shout of thanks goes to Dave Bender, who donated his time and skill in getting this thing securely mounted to the building! (it wasn't easy)

Summer is all but gone, but your Neighborhood Council is still hard at work.

At this month's General Meeting Jonathan Mallahan will tell us about changes in the way that our neighborhood receives and allocates CDBG funding. Dallas Hawkins will talk about Street Maintenance. We will have a status report on this year's Concert series, and we will have some information and vote on ideas from the Friends of Coeur d'Alene Park.

Sounds like a full agenda, but we'll have you outa there by 8pm - guaranteed!

We start at 6:30 this Wednesday evening at the NW Museum of Arts and Culture, downstairs in the Gilkey Community Room.

Concert in the Park

Pig Out in the Park is a great event, but do want something a bit more intimate?
Join us tomorrow evening for the 9th and final installment of our Free Summer Concert Series in the Park.
Kari Marguerite and The 76 will bowl you over with their sometime vintage, sometimes a bit on the edge, music.
You wont be disappointed until they start packing up their equipment to go home.

Thursday, August 28th, 6-8 pm at the Gazebo in Coeur d'Alene Park, Browne's Addition.

And, as always, we are Family and Pet friendly.
See you there!

-Tim

We have a new restaurant in the neighborhood!

Due to open sometime next week, the Hacienda Las Flores plans to open at the location of the long closed Sunset Junction.
I spoke to the owner Jorge this evening, and though he has a bunch of work to be done before he can open the doors, he's confidant that he'll get it done by Wednesday.

Featuring family recipes from Mexico City, Jorge and Adriana are excited to share their menu with you.

You may have already sampled their food, as they have offered the same menu at their 5th and Freya location for several years.
Moving to our neighborhood is a big plus for Jorge and the Browne's Addition Neighborhood.

Bienvenido!

Save the Date: September 20, 2014

Mark your calendars for September 20th at 3-5 pm for the 'kick-off' event to start the planning process for Coeur D'Alene and Overlook Parks.
Our neighbors will have the opportunity to give input on what they'd like to see in our park, and how we can make it happen.
Meet and talk with Dr. Bob Scarfo, the contracted architect/community planner, and meet some of your neighbors at the same time.
