November 2021 – Meeting Minutes

Minutes for 11-4-2021 Dimmitt’s Grove Neighborhood Association
Meeting started at 6:15pm to welcome guest speaker De Urban to speak first and introduce herself. She was recently nominated to fill the Ward 6 seat on City Council. Topics included the library expansion vs repairs, functional retention pond plans, and her “I don’t do politics, I do people” motto. She plans on attending more of our meetings in the future. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to send her an e-mail: ward6@cityblm.org
Attendance: 6 DGNA members present for the meeting, Brad Williams, Karen Schmidt, Pam Eaton, Melanie Hunter, Theresa Necessary, Terri Clemens. Introductions were made.
Meeting was officially called to order at 6:31pm by President Brad Williams at GreenTop grocery
Officer Fermon and Officer Pippin joined us to talk about the new Chief of Police, upcoming “Coffee with the Cops” events, and changes to the community crime website. They hope an increase in meetings for awareness, greater enforcement, and community efforts will help continue to keep crime down in this area.
Treasurer report: $1,476.79 is current account balance from Melanie Hunter
The Communications Committee still needs to get together and streamline processes and accesses for posting DGNA meeting minutes, pictures, Crime Reports, and general announcements.
The Social Committee plans to have a casual fall “sip-n-chat” event at the Garden of Eaton (512 East Taylor) November 10th 4-6pm (before cooler temperatures force us inside). A fire for roasting marshmallows will be provided.
Theresa Necessary reported there were only four incidents within the DGNA boundaries on the October crime report. She was able to ask BPD officers specific questions about reported issues; one with vacant property at 503 East Taylor.
Next meeting: January 6, 2022 @6pm Location: GreenTop grocery
