Walnut Bend Neighbors, We will have our second general meeting of the year this Tuesday, April 14, 2015. Please join us at the Algiers Regional Library at 6:15PM to discuss our neighborhood issues. We’ll have Officer Walton (NOPD’s 4th District Quality of Life Officer), Nora Ann Winbush (Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Engagement), and Kathryn Parham (from the Library) on hand at the meeting. We are also trying to get a representative from the City’s Public Works department to speak to us regarding street repair. To report a street in need of repair, complete the Fix My Street Form. Click on the link below to print and fill in the form.
WBCA Fix My Street form
Bring the form to the April 14 meeting (we will also have forms available at the meeting). If you have pictures of the street please include those with the form. We will collect the forms and build a consolidated report to submit to the City’s Public Works Department and Councilmember Ramsey’s office.
It seems to be more effective when a neighborhood focuses its efforts on one street at a time. While we are completely aware that there are many streets in need of repair within Walnut Bend we need to start our efforts somewhere. Following the meeting on Tuesday, the WBCA Board of Directors will review the forms submitted and select one street that will be our focus as we discuss the issue of street repairs with the city and our elected officials. The Board will select the street that we’ll focus on based on:
1) Number of PAID Walnut Bend Civic Association members residing on that street
2) Number of forms submitted on the same street
3) Safety/Poorest condition of street.
We’ll have a membership table set up for those wishing to pay the 2015 WBCA dues ($25 per household) and a table set up to hand out/collect the WBCA Fix My Street forms and pictures.
There will also be an update on blighted property within the neighborhood and our meeting with Councilmember Ramsey on the subject of blight. We will also discuss our efforts to invigorate the Neighborhood Watch Program.
We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday night!
