…er, just city council.
Happy Birthday, Keren!!!!
There’s trouble a-brewin’ near the CDC! The police station is right across the alley from us, and there is talk of adding on to the north side of their building to move Parks and Recreation there. (Not the t.v. show, dang it, just regular people.)
One of the concerned neighbors contacted us asking if we would send a representative to speak at the council meeting. Our director was needed at Family Night, so I got to go! I took Lloyd along in case I passed out from fear, and he had the excellent suggestion of keeping track of how the police parking lot is used. Parking is already tight in our neighborhood, and I can’t imagine that if they take away a whole lane of parking spots, they could ever make it work.
I loved keeping track of the cars! Why can’t this be my job? I typed up my notes all official-like and took in a bunch of copies. Though it was nerve-wracking speaking in front of the council, it was exhilarating sharing the facts! The city administrator only had an ‘average’ count of cars in the lot, taken every couple of afternoons, but I had peaks and lows! Glorious, glorious facts! (It reminded me of our going-to-court days.)
Anyway, the combined effort of the many neighbors did its job. The council is going to look into alternate places to put Parks & Rec – maybe Wednesday nights. Wait, that’s the show again, dang it.
Yes, good has been done here.
