Several board members brought up the fact that bars need to remember to clean up after Saturday nights.  Josh recommended we talk to Paula Grey about this.  She is serving as a liaison for the bars and the neighborhood.

Website: – The board picked both neighbors as winners in the photo content.  Lara sent then an email to ask if we can use them without fee, without license, and in perpetuity.  Both have agreed and received their gift cards. 

Judy Montero Update: Judy gave us an update on her three terms.  She discussed the upcoming elections, the changes to the map for district 9, and future concerns for the neighborhood.
