The next AHCA meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 20, at 7:30 pm in the Career Center. Agenda will include:
Neighborhood Conservation Plan Update Needed
by Jim Gill
The time has come to update
our Neighborhood Conservation Plan. The current version was written in
1980, and it reflects the priorities and concerns of the neighbors who
lived here then. In the intervening 19 years, we have met some of the objectives
of the plan and failed to meet others. As we move forward, we should confirm
that we still have the same priorities. The update begins with a resolution
from the civic association. The next step will be a survey of what is important
to the people who live in our neighborhood. We will form a committee to
consolidate the results of the survey and draft a Conservation Plan update.
The AHCA will approve the update and send it to the County’s Neighborhood
Conservation Advisory Committee (NCAC). The updated plan will be the basis
for future NCAC sponsored neighborhood improvements.
At its July 20 meeting, AHCA will be asked to approve the following motion:
Please Help...The County
is now adding plants and flowers to the sites of our new neighborhood signs.
During hot and dry weather, we need to be sure our new landscaping is watered
regularly. Watering is needed at S. 7th and Glebe Rd., S. 2nd and Garfield
Ave., and Arlington Blvd. and S. Irving St. If you live near one of these
sites, please be a good neighbor and water when you can. Help is needed
particularly at the Arlington Blvd. location -- a few family members and
friends, along with a few watering cans, will go a long way! Additional
watering will be necessary at the park at S. 9th and Irving St. (our fourth
sign location) when the park renovation is completed. Thank You!
