The Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Council meets tomorrow (Wednesday, June 10) at 6pm in the Corbin Senior Center (827 W Cleveland).
Unless the council votes otherwise, this will be the last meeting before the neighborhood-wide Summer Potluck on August 12, so it’s a good idea to attend and keep up to date on all that’s happening before the summer hiatus.
This month’s guest speaker is representatives from Spokane Public Montessori at Havermale, who’ll be talking about their new Bicycle Laboratory grant and the spring bike-centric event they’d like to plan along with the help of the neighborhood council. As Summer Parkways has decided to re-focus their efforts on the South Hill, this is a pleasant coincidence and could bring a similar event back to Emerson-Garfield.
Next we’ll talk about some of the preliminary locations the Greening Grant committee has identified for autumn plantings. That’ll be followed by rounding up some volunteers for the Summer Potluck as well as the traffic-circle plantings on Montgomery — which have been a long time coming.
There will be a brief recap of how the season opener of the Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market went, and we’ll also hear about the sidewalks that are scheduled to be installed on the N Maple traffic island later this summer. After a few more odds and ends (including whether or not we want to meet in July), we’ll close with the usual roundup of reports from neighborhood reps who are keeping up to date on citywide issues like crime, planning and land use that are affecting or could affect Emerson-Garfield.
As always, we ask you to keep our printing expenses low and download the materials beforehand as PDFs:
The neighborhood council is open to anyone who lives, works or owns property in Emerson-Garfield and homeowners as well as renters are encouraged to come to these meetings. We regularly see attendance of 40+ people from all over the neighborhood, and there are no dues, fees or other obligations to participate.
It’s a great way to stay informed, meet your neighbors and take an active, grassroots role in shaping your neighborhood for the better!
