May Community Meeting Report

There is a great deal to report on for our May Meeting – first we are so appreciative of Vanesha Davis, Principal and Marinelle Mariano,   faculty and the custodial staff who are generous with their time and hospitality for hosting us.

The agenda was packed (too much!) with information of what has been accomplished in past 6 months. Some highlights:

  • 60 solar powered motion detection lights installed by RTLB and the LBPD as a pilot project. See adjacent post.
  • Two areas of RP Neighborhood are beginning efforts to establish block groups. Ohio/Molino from 4th-7th….plans for a start-up meeting at Restauration (thanks to Dana Robertson). And Stanley from 7th to 10th….plans are to meet up at Rivera’s in near future. Key people will be reaching out to residents in those areas. If you’d like to be connected please email with your address.
  • The tree-keepers! Kicked off a plan for E7th and E10th. You’ll be seeing folks tending trees in next couple of weeks. Thank you Tim and David!
  • Art Romo presented an inspirational history of how he has become ‘hooked’ on community engagement.

Plus 3 RP videos on How we do it! here is the most recent clip! Plus lot’s more – keep watching for upcoming events:

June 17th – Tai Chi/Art Happening in Rose Park

July 23rd – Annual Picnic to be done adjacent to 8th St. Block Party

August – it seems so far away but working on the next Indie Meet up on “Empathy and Neighborhoods” with Li Yun Alvarado and Ellie Buchanan.
