This neighborhood continues to work on its preliminary plan, listing more than 50 proposed projects or concerns. Residents will meet at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Albright United Methodist Church, 2750 Fifth Ave. N.
They are already missing board member Hazel Taylor, who is moving to Nevada. She has led monthly work crews for a year. They clean streets and help maintain the more than 100 garden sites around the neighborhood's street signs.
This new association continues to grow with good meeting attendance and a new meeting place at Roberts Community Center. "These wonderful people made it clear we were all there for the same reasons and goals," said president James Christian.
The group has been meeting monthly on the fourth Tuesday since June. All residents within the boundaries are recognized members of the association. Those at meetings are active members. "What we would like to do is activate our inactive members," reports Christian.
Joining Christian are Susan Moltere, vice president; Julie Diselrod, treasurer; and Jan Rodemerk, secretary. Andrew Thornton is publishing a newsletter highlighting the association's white crane logo.
Getting sidewalks is a priority. Boundaries run from 46th to 62nd Avenue N between Dr. M.L. King and 16th streets. Christian announced the parks department will be adding live oaks and Washingtonian palms to a triangular median at 52nd Avenue N and Ninth Street.
