A new LC/CP Kids Meetup Group on Facebook.
Liaison – Christianne:
Frazer Center is looking at replacing back gate with a automatic gate. Dumpsters have been placed. Parking lot is on hold due to funding.
Natalyn’s campaign on going. The neighborhood has done well in providing fundraising. She has raised about $40K (vs. $8K for her opponent).
We are seeing an uptick in variances.
There is a master plan for the Harold Ave Greenspace, we are going to implement it now.
Feels that the citizens should have a chance to vote on the money the city would spend on the stadium.
Requests that those interested sign the petition.
