friends and North River Fronts Neighbors and Businesses!
Things are moving and shaking in a good way in our
little piece of Eau Claire. Phoenix Parkside is
booming! Businesses are filling up and there are
waiting lists for apartments and condos.
landlords are investing in some of our rental properties
and home owners are encouraging each other to take
pride in their properties.
lot of these advances have been possible because
we have an active and interested neighborhood association.

Tempo Coffee House
We had the neighborhood meeting on Wednesday and got a good discussion going on severals subjects:
1. We talked about rezoning a Industrial block to something that would allow retail /residential/performance. The group agreed that this type of zoning would compliment the good things that have happened on North Barstow, the High Bridge and the Cannery District. We voted to start the re-zoning process and to meet with City Staff to start making it happen.
2. We passed around the Tribute Trail animation for all to see. Everyone agreed that there is way more trail in the video than there is land in those three blocks, Folks want to see the trail develop and compliment the activities that are happening now.
3. We announced the availability of FREE sidewalk sand at the City Shops - bring your bucket and use to keep sidewalks free of ice this winter.
4. We learned that Jim Southworth will be taking Tim Golden's place as the North Side police officer liasion when Tim retires this spring. (Thanks Tim! Welcome Jim!)
5. We agreed that the Neighborhood meetings should take place Quarterly or as needed. New steering committee members are welcome and an election should happen at the next quarterly meeting...Feb/March?
6. We talked about where to meet and decided to explore the Owen Rust Community Room - The Local Store - The Forest St. Pavilion weather permitting - Other.
Meeting Adjourned at 7:58!
to all that joined us on a beautiful August evening!
Thanks to the Veterans for providing the grill and
Beckfield and Jeff Pippinger answered questions
about the future Tribute Trail.
we didn't see any plans - The city and FEMA are
going back and forth. Looks like they are planning
on construction in 2019. Gardening should go as
is for one more season.
Veterans, and Neighbors met to talk about
the Tribute Trail. Vets presented the neighborhood
with a US flag and stand - we'll make sure
it gets placed in a great place.
