Group Description

Welcome all to the 5th St. Yahoo Group!

Many of us on the block often stop, chat & discuss the various issues that affect us all as 5th St. residents.... so why not formalize the process, and bring it online!

The objective here is to provide an efficient grassroots forum for us - 5th street residents - to openly discuss the issues that confront us all ... but also to inquire, organize, notify, opine, pontificate, criticize, complain, compliment, question, or even just rant.

To get us all started, here are some possible discussion-topic ideas: (Do you have any opinions?)

* Lack of parking and what we can do about it
* Tree Pruning services required
* Graffiti Removal / Prevention
* Alternate side parking issues / ideas for improvement
* Street Cleaning concerns
* Garbage Removal / Recycling issues
* Sidewalk Bluestone issues
* Block Parties (What an incredible blowout success 2006 was! Kudos to the organizers)
* Local Schools & School Zoning issues on our street
* Babysitting (Seeking? Offering?)
* Recommending contractors, housekeepers, others
* Our local city council rep Bill DeBlasio: Doing a good job or bad?
* Any other issues pertinent to 5th St.

Whether you're a homeowner or renter, new to the block or here for 35 years, everyone has great ideas so speak-up everyone and make your voice heard!

Before getting started, a few quick notes:

1. Our original thought for this forum was to restrict this group to the block b/w 5th & 6th Avenue and then possibly expand outward, one block west/east at a time after that. Hopefully no one will object...

2. It seems logical to mandate that this Group should be for adults only, so let's try to reserve it for '18 & overs' only

3. Though notices were distributed, it's likley that many emails on the block were missed. If you know someone on the block who may be interested, pls tell them about this Group

4. When posting, pls include your address

5. Pls keep it civil!
