Dti0haqUUAA4hlJCome and hear what’s going on the neighborhood at our General Meeting on Tuesday, May 14, 7:00-8:50 PM in St. Andrew’s Parish Hall at S 5th Ave and E 16th St!

First, as discussed before, the Dusk Festival will be taking place this November in Armory Park. Page Repp (the promoter) will be in attendance to field your questions. Second, we will be discussing a proposed streetscapes committee, headed by Ken Taylor. There has been a flurry of discussion on the listserv regarding what/when and how to address owners of run-down properties.   Lets continue that discussion and come to a neighborhood consensus on Tuesday!

Here’s the agenda: APNA Agenda 5_14_19

Interested in Helping the Immigrants at the Benedictine Monastery?

immigrants_moore-1250x0-c-defaultA message from Ward 6 Council Member Steve Kozachik: “The weather is heating up. Consequently, we are seeing a lot of dehydration among the Central American guests who are now arriving at the monastery. Some report having been penned in outdoor corrals in El Paso, then having been bussed here with no fluids being offered. Their condition validates those stories. If you are so inclined, we could use 6-packs of small bottles of Gatorade/Powerade, or powdered or liquid flavored Pedialyte. We now hear directly from Border Patrol that they will be dropping up to 300 guests in the next few days – bypassing ICE in the process. The problem is not decreasing in magnitude.”
