E 185th Neighborhood Association's Very Informational August Meeting

Our August meeting turned out to be very informational!

First up was Councilman Polensek, who was able to give us updates on the E185th sewer project. He also announced the launch of a new city 3-digit code for building / property complaints (like tall grass etc.), potholes etc., waste collection issues, park & rec center maintenance issues etc. That number is 311. (More info here: http://www.city.cleveland.oh.us/CityofCleveland/Home/311)

The Councilman also discussed the dirt bikes on city streets issue, urging residents to call 911 if you spot these dirt bikes on our streets. Give police the best description you can when you call - and if you know where these bikes are coming from, also do call police. (We were even briefly on Fox 8, when Kevin Freeman asked to film our meeting, as a neighborhood group concerned about this issue. Verybriefly . . . )

All three of our Fifth District Community Engagement Officers, Nelson Muniz, Sabrina Walker and Aarius Waters, were also there, taking questions about community issues.

Our speaker, Mary Louise Daley, then talked about the Soldiers' & Sailors' Monument (which is celebrating its 125th Anniversary this year) as well as updates on our Collinwood Nottingham Historical Society.

Next month, we will be talking about the upcoming Census. Be sure to come, to find out why the Census is important, & to ask any questions you may have.

As always, we invite you to check out your local Neighborhood Association - the meetings are always listed in the Community Meetingscalendar here in the Collinwood Observer.This is your regular chance, to talk to both the Councilman, & our local Police District - & it's a great way to be active in this community of ours. 

Look forward to seeing you! (And bring a neighbor!)

See you next month!
