WELCOME TO THE NORTH & EAST NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL NEWSLETTER
Welcome to the North & East Neighborhood Council’s annual newsletter for 2015. I am the President of the Neighborhood Council.
If you are receiving this, you are a member of this neighborhood council. We meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month (except for November and December) at the Richmond Senior Center, 2525 Macdonald Ave., at 7:00 p.m. We are one of the largest neighborhoods in Richmond and are active in many things.
What is your biggest complaint about the street you live on, the surrounding area or the City of Richmond? We are the people who will listen to your complaints and try to find the answers. I spend an average of 10 hours a month going to City meetings and events so I can help you, the neighbors of the North & East. Tell me your troubles but be willing to engage with other like-minded neighbors to help make changes.
Do you enjoy where you live? Do you wish the parks were cleaner or there was less loud noise at night? These are all things we can work on together but you have to be willing to devote a little time and energy to make this a great place to live and play.
Do you have a business you would like your neighbors to know about? Then come to the monthly meetings and introduce yourself so your neighbors learn about you and your business. Can’t make it to the meeting? Then contact me and I’ll take your information to the meeting. The whole idea of the meetings is to engage the neighborhood and the businesses involved in the area to be friends and neighbors.
Do you have junk in your house or yard and really don’t want to pay to have it dumped? Well you are in luck! The City of Richmond will have a neighborhood cleanup on November 7, 2015, as we have every other year in our neighborhood. See the flyer in this issue for information.
Is the traffic around your block unsafe? Let us know, we may be able to help.
Do you belong to a neighborhood watch? Need to set one up? You can ask us for help or you can contact Michelle Milam at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 510-620-6538.
We welcome your comments, feedback and your presence at any and all of our meetings and events. Please tell us what you want from your neighborhood council and we will do our best to bring it to you. See you soon around the neighborhood.
