Hey Folks,

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.

–          Security

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!

–          Sustainability

o    Check out the how The Sustainability Institute could help you improve the energy efficiency of your home!

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 renee@sustainabilityinstitutesc.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,

Ryan Glushkoff
