Please join your neighbors on June 3, 2015 at 6:30 pm, downstairs at the MAC for the General Meeting of your Neighborhood Council.
You can expect updates from all of the various sub-committees and project coordinators, as well as information regarding Form Based Code and Historic Preservation from Mary Duvall, Historic Officer for the City of Spokane.
Here's a look at the agenda.
I hope to see you there. I'll save you a seat!

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.

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.

Christine White
