Ok, this has been well covered by other neighborhood groups and in the local blogosphere and social media, but we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t share, too.
– If you’re interested in seeing Laurelwood Park become a more prominent feature in the Foster landscape, you have one last chance to chime in on Foster Green’s enhancement plan this Thursday, 4/25. This final community workshop—at Bar Carlo, 6 p.m. – 7:15 p.m.—will allow you to share your thoughts on what’s assumed will be the chosen design option for the park. For a summary of the original design options, check out Nick Falbo’s article on Foster United.
– In more neighborhood environmental enhancement, the PSU students responsible for leading the Alley Allies project will be back this weekend to share their work with the neighborhood. The group, known as Mill Street Planning, will be hosting their open house at the BobWhite Theatre this Saturday, 4/27, and will be discussing potential uses for our alleys, as well as concepts they’ve come up with (perhaps we’ll see a proposal for more dirt bike rides). This open house will be from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.
– And looking down the road a little bit more, the Foster-Powell and Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood Associations will be holding their annual neighborhood cleanup at Arleta School next Saturday, May 4. Check the flier for “do’s and don’ts,” and support your NA’s. This is the FoPoNA’s biggest fundraiser of the year, so consider using this event for all your dumping needs.
– Oh, and then there’s this (for your Wednesday amusement) via the Willy Week: Man Says He Missed Father-Daughter Dance After Beating at Devil’s Point Strip Club. I’ll leave you with your own thoughts and commentary on this.
