On Sunday, August 26, Historic Edgefield Neighbors met for their annual ice cream social and board elections. A large gathering of residents were on hand for the event, and here are the outcomes of the board elections:
Also, the following list includes our continuing board members and officers: Lois Layne, president (2017-2020); Jim Damato (2017-2020); Terri Dorsey (2017-2020); Brandon Dyce (2017-2020); Phillip Hill (term 2017-2020); Chris Lucas (2016-2019); and Steve O’loughlin (2017-2020).
Board Retirement: Sherne Marie McMillan (2015-2018) is retiring from the board. We appreciate her many contributions to the neighborhood, which include organizing a block party, hosting the newcomers brunch, and helping with the HEN booth at Night Out Against Crime. Thank you so much, Sherne Marie!
Next HEN Meeting: Our next neighborhood meeting is September 25 at East Park Community Center, from 7-8PM. The preliminary agenda includes: Metro Council report with CM Withers; crime update from MNPD; update on parking; storm drain adoption request; new Warner School liaison, Jonathan Wren; and a street sign repair update.
On Monday, August 13, at 6:30PM, there will be a meeting at East Park Community Center on residential permit parking for the 800 and 900 blocks of Russell St.
Council Member Brett Withers has sent letters to all of the residents on those blocks informing them of the meeting and providing a survey form. If you live in those blocks and did not get a letter, contact CM Withers: Brett.email@example.com.
The information about the meeting has also been posted by CM Withers on the Historic Edgefield Facebook page, and his post also was sent to neighbors on the 800 and 900 blocks of Russell for whom the board had email addresses.
There will not be a vote at the August 13th meeting. The meeting will focus on providing information and answers to questions on residential permit parking so Russell St. residents can make an informed decision in the future. CM Withers has invited representatives from Public Works and the Mayor’s Office to answer questions.
The Residential Permit Parking program is found in Section 12.42.010-110 of the municipal code.
