The Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Council meets this Wednesday, May 14 at 7pm in the Corbin Senior Center (827 W Cleveland). We met hundreds of new folks at the Spring Cleanup this past weekend, and we hope to see many of you there!
On the subject of Spring Cleanup, we’ll be hearing a quick recap of the event, including participation, hiccups (like broken dumpster hinges and dumpsters that came back full), and just how much trash was collected. The numbers are pretty impressive.
There will be a trio of guest speakers, including representatives of the Riverfront Park Master Plan, who’ll be explaining what’s in store downtown and who’s going to pay for it, plus Alicia Powell of the Office of Neighborhood Services (on potential stormwater improvements here in E-G) and Dave Braun on behalf of Summer Parkways — which is returning to our neighborhood this year!
And, of course, we’ll hear our final Neighborhood Planning update, how the Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market is shaping up, what’s in the works for this season’s Concerts in the Park, as well as some fun (no, really!) volunteer opportunities.
