BPNA Meeting Tues. May 25, 2010

Our May meeting will be this Tuesday, May 25. As usual, we'll meet at 7:00p.m. at the Free Methodist Church at the corner of Grimes and S. Lincoln.


Bryan Park Neighborhood Stormwater Issues

Many neighbors have commented on the recent HT article reporting on sewage overflows after storms, which identified a manhole near the Walnut/Davis St. intersection as the most common overflow location. The storm water that causes these overflows drains through our own yards and streets. Guest speakers from the City of Bloomington Utilities will address issues of storm water management at the meeting on Tuesday. Our City Council Representative Isabel Piedmont-Smith will also attend. Come learn about what the city has done to date as well as options for future remediation.

Blooming Neighborhoods Sign-up

Again this year, we'll have a table for Bryan Park at the June 5 BloomingNeighborhoods event at the Farmer's Market. The city will provide a table, map and sign, and we'll bring our canopy. We need volunteers to sit at the table and chat about BPNA to people who stop by. Please sign up for a time on the sign-up sheet, or contact Mary to sign up.

Davis St. Garden

Ria Collee has offered to walk the Davis St. garden after the meeting. Lots of activity and hard work have gone into the garden this year, and Ria will point out some of the special things growing--as well as work that still needs to be done.

Neighborhood Leadership Series

The next session in the series will be held on Thursday, June 10. It will take place in the City Council chambers from 7-9pm. This session is called a "Round Table Discussion with Proven Neighborhood Leaders in the Area of Land Use." One of the speakers will be our own Jan Sorby. Mark your calendars!

Incident Report

Regular monthly report from Dick and Mary Lou Mitchell, our Neighborhood Watch representatives.

Please let me know if you'd like to add anything to the agenda.
