Upcoming Community Meeting – Thursday May 23rd

What happens at a Community Meeting – a Rose Park Neighborhood Community meeting? Each of these meetings are planned to offer all those attending information specific to our area. We review what the Rose Park Neighborhood Association has been doing; we have an analysis of a specific type of crime and how we compare to the rest of the city and we have an informed presentation so that we can empower ourselves.

The topic of this Community Meeting originated at a focus group  our neighborhood was invited to participate in – Community Health Needs Assessment. Those attending from Rose Park Neighborhood wanted to continue with a goal to improve our knowledge, access and quality of life.

We will host content experts at our May 23rd Meeting! Please come to learn what we have and what we need! We need to hear your concerns! Please come to Luther Burbank School Thursday May 23rd – Parking off Dawson (staff/faculty lot) – meeting is expected to be inside school Library. There will be signs!!!!

Panel: Kelly Colopy – Director of Health and Human Services, Chris Robson – RP resident and Vice-Chair of Health and Human Services Commission, Jeannine Pearce -Council Member CD2, Jessica Truesdale – Community Outreach at Safe Refuge, Ishmael Salamanca – Director of Health Services at The Center, Dina Berg – Executive Director of Heart of Ida, Dawn Mendelson – Developer of Concept – ArtWorksLB and Christine Petit, Executive Director of LB Forward.

Signal Light and Spotlight

Never say never – so the Street Light aka signal at 4th and Obispo – (Thank you Councilmember Pearce) is receiving power. The big gala hurrah and let’s give it up to DPW will be Monday 10am May 13th. But as we’ve said we’ve waited this long the date may change so check social media. But on the big day the light will flash and the paparazzi will snap photos and we will all celebrate that this is one more reminder to slow down.

In the meantime our local public access channel PadNet produced a really smart video – it made us look good! Thank you Darick and team! And Jessica, Samana, Danielle, Janna and Richard who joined Gretchen in exampling civic engagement the Rose Park way.

There is still lots of love to go around.
