I'm writing to invite you to come to the next Beat 4 Neighborhood
Crime Prevention Council (N.C.P.C.) meeting. The purpose of these
meetings is to discuss neighborhood concerns, ideas for neighborhood
improvements, crime prevention strategies and community building.
7PM to 8PM
This Wednesday March 14
City Hall Hearing Room 3 (1st floor).
Use my contact information below if you would like to walk to the
meeting as part of a group.
The Neighborhood Crime Prevention Council is a democratically
conducted, city recognized forum for neighborhood residents.
At our next meeting, we will also discuss a resolution I offered to
rename this body "Neighborhood Crime Prevention Council" to simply
"Neighborhood Council." I offered this resolution in consideration of
many in our neighborhood who are interested in multiple avenues of
community building, such as neighborhood beautification improvements
(more trees, sidewalk repairs, etc.), strengthening social services
and programs, and promoting public health, local businesses, and
economic development. Of course, these complement community policing
and police services.
The text of my draft resolution can be found at the following link.
