BPNA Monthly Meeting Tuesday July 26

Our monthly meeting for July will be this Tuesday, July 26. As usual, we'll meet at 7:00 p.m. at the Free Methodist Church on the corner of Grimes and S. Lincoln. Let me know if you'd like to add anything to the agenda.

Incident Report
Scott Oldham, with the police department, can’t make it to the meeting. He has offered to schedule a special meeting with us, to follow up on complaints of car break-ins, graffiti, etc. Stay tuned for a meeting announcement.
See a map of the recent incidents:
Walnut St. Newsletter Route
We need volunteers to deliver the newsletters along Walnut St. Anybody?
Conservation District Discussion
Discussion of the recent stories in the HT about proposed plans for a 14,000-square-foot-house in the Elm Heights neighborhood. This house would cover two lots, requiring one existing house to be moved and another mostly demolished to make room for a structure that size. We will have copies of the articles to share.
As we consider the possibility of applying for conservation district status, this will give us a chance to talk about a situation that is happening right now.
Michael Korus Use Variance
Board of Zoning Appeals denied the use variance request.
Stormwater Project
The stormwater remediation project is scheduled to begin along S. Palmer. The first step is the installation of a new stormwater pipe between Allen and Davis. The city should have contacted everyone along Palmer by now, but if you have any questions, let me know.
Alley Problem
Update on alley problem adjacent to 1106 S. Washington. This was due to come before the Board Of Public Works on June 7, but was postponed for more research. It is currently with the Mayor’s office. We are waiting to hear when this item will be put on the Public Works agenda.
Trucks on E. Grimes
Discussion about oversized truck traffic on E. Grimes.
