AUGUST 18, 2011




David called the meeting to order at 7:00 p.m.   He thanked Loren Carlson from the Green Room Coffee for bringing coffee and brownies.   He also welcomed our other guests.


Lisa Dettlinger, from the Center for Neighborhoods, addressed the group.  Her main focus was the PAINT project.  This project brings different kinds of art to the neighborhoods.


Lt. Glenn Simpson then addressed the group.  He talked about the National Night Out, tagging in the neighborhood and various things we can do to protect our property.  We then had an open discussion. Lt. Simpson addressed many of the concerns of the group.


Kevin Kramer also addressed the group.  He talked about grass cutting on the public right of way.  He shared the good news that there will be irrigation at the railroad overpass.  This will be a big help as we try to maintain that area after Brightside gets everything planted.


Clancy gave the treasurer’s report.  There are 498 paid members as of tonight.  As of July 31, 2011 we had $30,066.31 in the bank.


We have a new agreement with ID.  Debbie negotiated a lower rate for the next two years.


David reported that he is still looking at radon companies to come into the neighborhood and check our homes.  He is hoping to get us a reduced price.  He is also looking at security companies who install cameras.


Councilman Kramer acknowledged Debbie McKnight for all of her work for the neighborhood.  We then had a lively open forum with the councilman.


David reminded the membership that we will have elections in November.  The vice president and secretary along with all councilpersons will be elected.   According to our by-laws, someone new must be elected secretary.


David reminded everyone of the picnic and asked for help with prizes.


The meeting was adjourned.
