Find It, Fix It followup, plus crime/safety focus group, @ Westwood-Roxhill-Arbor Heights Community Council tomorrow

One week after a delegation of city officials led by Mayor Ed Murray walked from the Longfellow Creek P-Patch to Roxhill Park – has the Find It, Fix It Walk changed anything? Will it? A followup discussion focused on grants related to the walk is one of two major agenda items for tomorrow night’s Westwood-Roxhill-Arbor Heights Community Council meeting.

Lemmis Stephens, an AmeriCorps team worker on the Find It, Fix It team, at right in photo above, will be there. (The grant applications are here – deadline next Wednesday, August 3rd.) Monday’s 6:15 pm meeting upstairs at Southwest Library (35th/Henderson) also will include a “focus group” on crime/safety/policing issues for the area served by WWRHAH, with SW Precinct researcher Jennifer Burbridge. All welcome, whether you want to join in the discussion or sit in the corner and observe.

       I wish I could make these meetings, but unfortunately, my schedule won’t allow it.


    BTW, it might have been a good idea for the council to change the day for this particular meeting considering that tomorrow night is the neighborhood get together which has the intention (at least IMO) of getting neighbors together to get to know each other better, exchange emails and phone numbers and talk about issues within their neighborhood.

      Yes, actually, that’s part of the agenda. The WWRHAH meeting is tonight, Night Out is Tuesday. No conflict.

      We know meetings in the evenings can be hard, especially 6:15 pm on a Monday.  The library is a convenient, free location, but closes at 8:00 – making it a early and tightly packed meeting. And with so many other great meetings, it’s hard finding a day that doesn’t compete.

      Tonight, we are going to be talking about the Find It, Fix It walk grant money that is available – $5,000 – to anyone within the Westwood/Roxhill Area.  The applications are due on Wednesday, the 3rd.  Here is the link to the application.

      We will also be talking about our community and crime.  That is the intention of Jennifer Burbridge’s time with us.  Feedback about what is happening in the neighborhood, and what we would like to see the police focus on.  Perfect questions to bring to your Night Out parties. You can give your feedback to Jennifer at

      With so many block parties happening on Tuesday, our meeting is intended to give people information to take to their neighbors (actually, that is every meetings intention).  We know meetings are not the only source of communication and information, we are always open to suggestions!  We do have a Facebook page, a website, and a Twitter account.  And we try to post as much information there as quickly as possible.

Sorry, comment time is over.
