I hope this email finds everyone well in pre-week for Thanksgiving. Please pardon me if I don’t send an email update next week, as I may be in a turkey and sweet potato induced coma.
o It’s Thanksgiving Week – with people out of town visiting relatives, KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR SUSPICIOUS BEHAVIOR! If you see anything out of the ordinary, call the police or just call 911!
o And if you are riding your bike around town, remember to use a lock! I know of two bikes that have been stolen recently – both were recovered luckily, but please be vigilant!
– Neighborhood Meeting Summary
o We had a successful neighborhood meeting this past Monday – for those of you who missed it, I’ll do a brief recap – but trust me, they are much more entertaining in person… J
o Dan Riccio, the Director of Charleston’s New Livability Division, visited to explain his new job. If you have livability issues, call his office at (843) 724-3765 or email him at RICCIOD@charleston-sc.gov.
o The neighborhood voted in favor of a plan for identified parking on St. Philip Street! Big thanks to the residents of St. Philip Street and Brett Johnson (Chair of our Traffic & Parking Committee) for stewarding the process.
o In case you haven’t noticed, there is now a 4-way stop sign at the intersection of Bogard & Percy – another big thanks to Brett Johnson for working with the City to get this installed. This will help slow traffic on Bogard Street and add to the neighborhood feel – especially since we now have Enoteca (a cool new wine bar) at the intersection. PS – If you haven’t tried it, you should!
o If you are interested in participating in the program or know someone who might be, contact Renee Patey at 843-529-3421 or email her firstname.lastname@example.org.
o And as an FYI, the group is going to be speaking at our next neighborhood meeting on December 20 at 6:30PM! Don’t miss that!
– And of course, it wouldn’t be weeks end with the update from the City of Charleston! (attached)
o Nominations for The Harold Koon Award are being accepted – the application is include.
o If you know someone that exemplifies volunteer dedication and service to the neighborhood and community – you should fill this out for that person and submit!
Until next week I remain,
