Informative Meeting with City Council Member Helen Rosenthal on March 29 and we thank her
The Council Member addressed many topics of concern to residents and businesses and invites everyone to stay in touch with her at her site http://helenrosenthal.com/.
The council member will continue to be a strong partner with us to maintain and improve conditions both on our street and in the community. This successful meeting will prompt us to invite other community leaders to meet with our street. We thank First Church of Christ, Scientist for providing their magnificent Love Domed auditorium for the March 29 meeting. See photo.
A SPEED BUMP between Columbus Ave and CPW?
As several schools exist here a request has been made to the block association to seek installation of a traffic slowing speed bump approximately in front of building 48. We need as much “PRO” and “CON” input as possible to fairly and openly discuss this request. Please send in any thoughts and experiences about the speed bump for our block. Should we decide to proceed, Council Member Rosenthal will advocate to DOT on our behalf.
May 1 Block Party and BBQ Postponed to the Fall
The location between Amsterdam Ave and Broadway will be the same, as will be the bounce house, face painters and Pat La Frieda burgers and hot dogs. We need your input for a new date in September or October and a new volunteer crew is needed to make the BBQ delicious and safe. Please let us know you can help ASAP. Thank you!
Street Planting Coming Soon in May. Please Help Out.
The block association provides the plants and equipment. You help by providing the labor on your personal schedule. Contact us and be assigned a tree pit.
I’m an Automatic Block Association Member?
That’s right you are! All residents, owners and street business persons are automatic members. This includes our schools, church, and synagogues. There are no dues. Everyone comes equally to “Create Community” together. Our leadership steering committee has representatives from all street segments between CPW and Amsterdam Ave. New steering committee participants are always welcome.
Treasurer is sought
Can you handle the books, pay the bills and be involved in deciding upon and implementing street wide improvement projects? If so, we would love to talk with you. Generous compensation package available. Latest treasury report may be viewed here https://w68th.wordpress.com/.
Social Media help is needed
The block association has broad representational and administrative authority but we have communication’s shortfalls preventing us from making our street even a better place to live and work. Can you provide some skills?
