Correction: Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association’s Neighborhood Concerns Committee meeting, July 23, 7pm, Room 10 at Sierra 2 Center

Neighborhood Concerns Committee Meeting July 2014

The Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association’s Neighborhood Concerns Committee (NCC) will meet Wednesday, July 23rd at 7:00 pm at the Sierra 2 Center, 2791 24th Street
Please note: We will meet in Room 10.
Strong Mayor Proposal
There will be a Strong Mayor proposal on the November 2014 ballot. SCNA has been asked to consider holding a forum on this subject. On Wednesday we will not be discussing the proposal, just the possibility of sponsoring a debate in September or October. The event would likely follow the format of previous SCNA hosted forums.

Bicycle Pathways from Curtis Park to Downtown
We will discuss areas that could be improved for bicyclists using pathways north into town from Curtis Park.

Miscellaneous items
Ideas on a kiosk for the park.

The fence along 24th Street between Donner and 5th Ave at the Curtis Park Village property line apparently does not meet City code requirements. The City now claims the fence is too high. This affects 3 Curtis Park homes on the abandoned part of 24th. The fence was installed by Petrovich Development and approved by the City but now the 3 neighbors are being held financially responsible for this mistake.

Palm Tree Removal at 21st Street and 2nd Avenue

At this week’s NCC meeting we will discuss our strategy to save three beautiful Canary Island Date Palm trees on 21st   Street near 2nd Avenue in front of Park Fine Art. They were posted for removal because of structural and safety problems from growing into the SMUD lines overhead. An appeal to the removal was filed by the Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association and other residents of Curtis Park. The appeal was approved and will be reviewed by the Parks and Recreation Commission at a public hearing on February 6th at 7:00. The hearing will take place in the historic City Hall, 915 I Street, 2nd floor, in the Commission Hearing Room. Our position is that SMUD should move the power lines rather than cutting down the trees. We hope many of you can attend this meeting to show support for saving these wonderful palm trees.

William Curtis Park Cleanup Days 2014

Our first cleanup day of the year will be Saturday, March 8th, from 9 am to noon. We will be cleaning and planting in the garden area just north of the playground. Other projects this year will include filling in some of the holes/depressions around the park and doing a general cleanup before the Home Tour.

Noise from Hughes Stadium

We have received complaints about the very loud sound system at Hughes Stadium. NCC will do some research and see if we can convince the powers that be to turn down the volume.
