Dimmitt’s Grove Neighborhood Association
Meeting Minutes-March 3, 2016
The March 2016 meeting of Dimmitt’s Grove Neighborhood Association was held at the Eatons’ on March 3. The meeting was called to order by President Brad Williams. Fifteen neighbors were present. Approval of minutes was tabled as they had not been widely read. Secretary Terri Clemens asked to be relieved of her duties as secretary and Lacey Fritsch stepped up to take her place beginning in May. There was no treasurer’s report, but Brad reported that $100 was taken from the treasury as relief to the Valentines whose house on Taylor suffered severe fire damage. Reggie asked Brad to thank the neighbors for their support.
Winter Traveling Social Hour was a great success and Brad thanked Julia and Doug and Lacey for hosting. The neighborhood plan is on hold and will be back on in April or May. Jerica gave an update on Green Top Grocery. It will be built on Washington St. behind Beer Nuts, and will feature local produce, full service, community classes, etc. Ground breaking this spring.
Mark your calendars for the June 4 Flea Market, which will be held from 9 to 3. A map will be made and advertising will be done for a $5 contribution. Contact Terri at firstname.lastname@example.org to participate. The Bake Sale will be July 9 at Farmer’s Market. More info in May. A summer traveling social hour will be announced at the next meeting. Plans are being made on E. Taylor St and a date is in the works.
It’s time to print and deliver a half sheet newsletter to let new neighbors know we’re here and how to find us. Hoping to deliver in May.
Pam discussed a long term rehab in progress on Jackson St. It is part of a federal grant program with a 4 year construction limit. Pam announced the opening of Satio, a wine restaurant replacing A. Renee and owned by one of our neighbors Kristine Wallace. It will also have a wine shop. Downtown on Center and Jefferson.
We have a new website with the same address, to be managed by Sarah Hanzel. http://www.dimmittsgrove.org. Block captains are all assigned! Brad attended a BPD meeting and learned that they do not receive all text calls, only some new phones transmit locations so they still need to talk to callers.
The next meeting will be on Thursday May 5 at 7 PM at 516 E. Clayton, hosted by Susan and TJ.
