OK, so the Snow Plows hit the neighborhood today on the North/South streets.
Sadly, 19 cars were towed by the City of Spokane.
I think that they are serious this year.
You East/West folks have been warned, as they will be working your streets tomorrow.
Get those cars off the street before 9AM.
Don't give the City of Spokane your money, or your car!

Leaf Pickup scheduled for Browne's Addition

Leaf Pickup scheduled for Browne's Addition

Cars need to be off the street Dec. 15-16
Contact: Julie Happy, 509.625.7773, jhappy@spokanecity.org

Thursday, December 10, 2015 at 12:43 p.m.

The City of Spokane continues its regularly scheduled leaf pickup in the Browne’s Addition neighborhood.
Leaf pickup occurs in Browne’s Addition for two days beginning 9 a.m., Tuesday, Dec. 15 through Wednesday, Dec. 16.  Cars must be moved off of the street.  Cars not moved will be towed as needed.
Tuesday’s leaf pick up route will be the north/south streets between the area south of Riverside Avenue and north of 2nd Avenue/Sunset Boulevard, which includes the area west of Maple Street to east of Coeur D’Alene Street.
Wednesday’s leaf pickup schedule will be the east/west streets between the area south of Riverside Avenue to north of 2nd Avenue/Sunset Boulevard, which includes the area west of Maple Street and east of Coeur d’Alene Street.
In the event of snow, leaf pick up will stop and then continue when weather allows.
Being aware of the leaf pickup schedule is key to a successful pickup experience. Knowing when crews are in your area and removing vehicles from the streets ensures your neighborhood is cleared of as many leaves as possible.

Hi! Here are some opportunities for citizens to give public comment and/or interact with Spokane Police Department, as well as upcoming training for civilians.

Public Meeting
The Police Advisory Committee (PAC) is holding their quarterly public meeting on Thursday, September 17 at 5:30 pm at East Central Community Center. PAC will hold their regular meeting but it is open to the public and guests can ask questions and give input.  Flyer attached.

Training Opportunity
Enhancing the Survival Mindset (ESM) is a women’s self-defense class, which offers participants hands-on self-defense and safety awareness training by Spokane Police officers. ESM Level 1 will be held October 1st, from 6 - 10 pm.

The ESM Level 1 course offers participants the opportunity to learn the basics of self-defense. The course consists of a classroom portion where participants will receive information on crime statistics, situational awareness, and information on enhancing their survival mindset. Hands-on training introduces participants to defensive tactics techniques and places participants into realistic threat scenarios. A participant's survival mindset will determine the outcome of these scenarios. Attendees must be at least middle school aged (allowed when accompanied by a guardian) or older to participate. There is a $35 charge to cover the costs associated with the class. Scholarships are available for those who need financial assistance.

Enhancing the Mindset Level 2 is the next step in the reinforcement and development of the survival mindset. Participants are exposed to approximately six new threat scenarios that will enhance your schemas for real life survival. Attendees must be at least middle school aged (allowed when accompanied by a guardian) and older to participate and must have completed Level One. There is a $35 charge to cover the costs associated with the class. ESM Level 2 will be held on October 22nd, from 6 - 10 p.m.

To register and for more information about the classes, go to https://my.spokanecity.org/police/citizen/training/ or call the SPD Academy at 509-742-8100.

The 2015 Summer Concert Series has come to an end, and want to thank everyone who came out to enjoy this year's entertainment.
I had the pleasure of hosting the entire nine weeks. I met, and chatted, with just about all of you. I played with your kiddos, petted your dogs, and generally had a great time. I also thank you all for feeding the Lavender Bucket when it came around. You were very generous.
Thanks also to the talented lineup of musicians. Without them, I would have had a lot of time to fill. (that would not have been a good thing)
And don't forget our sponsors. Without them, this would never have been a success.
We look forward to seeing you next July, when we kick-off the 20th season of the Browne's Addition Summer Concert Series!

Browne's Addition welcomes ArtFest!

For those of you who are new to the neighborhood, ArtFest is our premier event of the year.
Expect the streets to be packed with auto and foot traffic, so drive with care.
Off street parking will be at a premium, and there will some changes to the STA Bus Routes through the neighborhood.
Be sure to remove those trash bins from the street as soon as they are emptied, as they take up valuable parking space.
Have fun, and enjoy Artfest 2015.



Saturday, May 23, 2015

Artfest is just around the corner, and the Friends of Coeur d'Alene Park want to remind you that they will have their Lemonade Stand at the Patsy Clark Mansion again this year. Starting on Friday, May 29, and ending on Sunday May 31.
Stop by and learn about the work that this group is doing to preserve and restore our neighborhood park.
T-Shirts and other park related items will be for sale along with some "surprises".

If you have never toured the Patsy Clark Mansion, this will be your best chance to get a look behind those front doors.
15 min tours with stories of the neighborhood of the Patsy Clark Mansion will be offered on Saturday and Sunday during the weekend. The hours of tours are 11-5 Saturday and 11-4 on Sunday. A $5 donation is requested.

Hello Browne's Addition neighbors,
Happily the traffic circle at the corner of Pacific and Canon is fully planted for the season.
We will need a little help with watering so if you love to hang out at this focal point of Browne's Addition and you want to help with occasional watering, let me know

Also all of the Coeur d'Alene Park planters are also planted for the season.
But 5 of the 7 planters in the park need someone to help care for them in what is likely to be a really long hot and windy summer.
I am asking for folks to "adopt a planter".  
What this means, most importantly, is watering on weekends and checking on them once in a while during the week.

Our park attendant this year is doing a yeoman's job of keeping them watered during the week but it's a big park for one person and planters get missed. 
On Fridays he leaves at 2:00 PM and doesn't return until Monday
There is never anyone there on the weekend to water.
We have good and easy access to water in the park so all you really need is a watering can or bucket.

If you care to you can weed a little, dead head a little, mutter sweet nothings to the plants a little. Or just use the time to enjoy our precious park. 
Please email me if you want to talk about the "how to" of it. 
Thanks very much.

Got bags?

Your neighborhood needs your plastic grocery, produce, bread, and newspaper bags to fill our Mutt Mitt stations.
We are running on empty right now.
Please take some time to stuff those Mitt stations with your bags.
You can spot the stations on each corner of Coeur d'Alene Park and at each end of Overlook Park.
Thanks!  - Tim
