Meadowbrook Community Meeting January 9, 2018 7-8:30PM

MCC Meeting Announcement For:
January 9, 2018; 7-8:30pm

I was late in reserving Rm1 so meeting will be in Rm11 (room to the right as you walk in).
We will not be having a featured speaker for this meeting but instead we will focus on several other issues.

I will provide an update on the Your Voice, Your Choice (YVYC) program. It has started with a short time line. Ideas will be due on Feb 2nd. I’ll have forms and ideas that folks can consider as potential project ideas to submit. You can also go on line to study up on the program. I just Googled “Your Voice, Your Choice,” or you can go to Your Voice Your Choice. I will also try to set a date for a YVYC meeting to prioritize and electronically submit our project ideas.

We will also entertain nominations for the board other than those currently proposed i.e., Pam Bowe- President, Dan Keefe – VP, Mike Reinhardt – Secretary, and Wilma Boyd – Treasurer.

We will need to allocate $25 for dues for our continued membership in Lake City Neighborhood Alliance (LCNA) if we indeed want to continue to be a member. We could also use someone to be our representative at their meetings.

The Sidewalk Committee will provide its usual update on the various projects SDOT has been working on in our area and take any comments you may have on what has been implemented so far. I plan to push hard for the completion of the sidewalk on NE 110th btwn 35th & 36th Avenues by Sept, 2018.

Status of JAMS Playground Beautification planning project will be discussed.

Emergency HUB status will be updated.

Look forward to seeing you at the meeting. …… Dan Keefe, President

Your Voice, Your Choice — Vote Now!

Dear Meadowbrook neighbors:

It has come time to get involved in the City’s participatory budgeting process by voting for three projects in District 5 associated with the “Your Voice, Your Choice” program. Voting is pretty simple and one can vote on line or by paper ballot. Just follow the links below in the message from the Department of Neighborhoods (DoN). Pam Bowe, Wilma Boyd and I were heavily involved in the process of reviewing all the submitted projects and reducing the number to 10 for voting. Meadowbrook has only one, the Ravenna and NE 98th ST intersection, in the final 10. Each person can vote for three projects. While all of the final 10 are worthy endeavors, we are hoping that the Meadowbrook community will always chose the Ravenna project when they are voting for their three favorites. Voting is an extended process. It ends on June 30th with the results to be made known on July 17th.

Thank you for participating. Have a good summer and I’ll see some of you at MCC’s July 11th meeting.

Best,
Dan Keefe
President
Meadowbrook Community Council
