Browne's Addition Leaf Removal Info

Hey Neighbors!

I hope you enjoyed the changing colors of the leaves... because they are on the ground now and going away next week!

On Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, November 18 & 19th, the City will be removing leaves from our streets here in Browne's Addition.  They'll do the north-south streets on Tuesday and the east-west streets on Wednesday. Please move your cars off the street on those days or the city threatens to tow you!  Pass this info along to your neighbors, please.

On this Sunday, November 16th, a small group of neighbors will be meeting together to flyer the neighborhood to help get this information out. We're putting together a simple flyer to put in apartment complexes and on cars giving out this information.  We'll also bring our rakes to help get leaves into the streets. If you'd like to help, meet at 1PM at 215 S Cannon St, rain or shine, and bring your gloves and rakes!

Happy Fall!

Browne's Addition November General Meeting: THIS WEDNESDAY @ 6:30PM!

Hey Neighbors,

This Wednesday is our November General Meeting.  We'll meet at 6:30 PM at the MAC.  This is an important meeting because we'll be voting on how to allocate our 2009 HUD Grant funds totaling more than $35,000.  I've attached the minutes from last month as well as the agenda for this month which will show you a bit about how we are thinking of allocating the funds. If you'd like to know more, please come to the meeting this week.

IMPORTANT: While everyone is welcome to give their input to how this money is allocated, only active members can vote. An active member is one who has attended 3 meetings in the last 6 months. In order to vote on 2009 allocations, this Wednesday must be at least your 3rd meeting in the last 6 months.

Also, I am attaching a sheet on our Executive Committee recommendations for the Public Service Grants.  $5330 of our total monies can be spent to support the work of public service agencies that serve our neighborhood.  We've made a recommendation on how to spend this money, but it is up to you all to vote it in.

I am also attaching a short summary on how HUD monies can be spent. Please read it before you come to the meeting so that you have a basic understanding of how the process works.

Finally, we need to put together a slate of names for the Executive Council positions.  We'll vote on these positions at our December meeting which will be a Holiday Party at the EJ Robert's Mansion (more info to come).  If you are interested in serving on the Executive Council, please preview the agenda (attached) and be ready to throw your name in the hat!!
