The Community got together on Saturday once again to discuss “making life better in Lynn” and the playground rebuild process.
Thanks to all who came and enjoyed good conversation, good pizza and getting to know each other.
One of the great accomplishments of the meeting was the contagious enthusiasm that all expressed in making the next block party a bigger, more well-planned event to invite more participation. We set the date for Sunday, June 12, 2011. Save the date!!!
Also, we heard that snail mail might still be the thing for some residents who are yet to be engaged in our meetings. Good idea – we’ll work on getting those addresses and mailing out the invite.
Next meeting date: November 20 at noon.
Today, I met with the fence contractors at the playground at 7:30am. This will be great! The whole front will be replaced with 7 ft high fencing with a gate. The gate will simply have a latch on but won’t be locked. We’re making the pedestrian entry wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs. The curb might need to be cut off at some point but the gate itself will be up to current code.
We’re now waiting to hear the price and installation date.
Spread the word!
