Letter from the President, October 2015


Well it is time for the seasons to change in our beautiful neighborhood…instead of it averaging 115 we can expect the average to round down to a breezy 106! During this time of the year we will have our yards scalped and new winter grass planted. Please be respectful to your neighbors and make sure the shared trash cans are not filled with your clippings.

Big shout out to Mark Davis and Tom Nieson for hanging the Block Watch signs in the Alleys. You will also notice the Sandwich Boards” on 5th and 3rd Avenue that provide information about our monthly meetings. These boards and the signs were all part of a block watch grant that the RAA received a couple years ago.

It looks like we are going to have over 700 new neighbors at the 7.5 acres parcel located on 5th Ave/Filmore (Old Pappas School). Trammell Crow/Chavez foundation were the successful respondents from the Request for Proposal from the City. We have requested that they provide information about their plans at our October meeting.


I would like to invite all of you to attend our monthly meetings to hear about our financials and minutes, to meet our great Community Action Officers (Officer Howell and Officer Harris), to get involved (Home Tour, Newsletters, Roosevelt Kids Club, etc) and to hear of any changes occurring In your neighborhood. The meetings are the first Tuesday of each month, from 6:00pm till 7:30pm and are located at the UL2 Building (southwest corner of 2nd Ave/McKinley), north entrance at the ground level. I recommend that everyone check out www.rooseveltneighborhood.org and like us on FaceBook.


I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!!!

Karl Obergh, President
