Board Meeting Report

The Annesdale Park Board met this past week. We heard from Henry Winter, president of Annesdale-Snowden, who encouraged us to write to District Attorney Bill Gibbons about the Lamplighter Motel. This motel is located at the corner of Lamar and Bellevue and appears to be the focal point of criminal activity in this area. We will follow up with letters to the D.A., as well as to our City and County representatives Names and contact info will be posted separately on this blog.

We also discussed crime issues in our neighborhood. The Board is dismayed at the lack of regular police patrols, and these concerns will be communicated to the West Precinct. In the meantime, we can help ourselves by keeping an eye out for, and reporting, suspicious activity. Outdoor motion-detecting lights and security systems can also be a deterrent to property crimes. Also, please keep you porch lights on at night.

On Sunday, September 9, we will have our Summer Social and general membership meeting, starting at 4 p.m. We are hoping to book St. John’s Church for this event. Please save the date. More details will follow soon.
