Two people showed up for the October meeting, so future room reservations
were canceled and someone else that Christina and I will have to carry on.
The City of Dallas now requires a paid permit, $15, to hold a yard sale and is going to enforce a bunch of rules that many people knew about (2 sales a year) and many didn't - yard sales are supposed to be only in the back yard. More here
Although the Santa Fe bike-hike trail appears finished on our end near
Glasgow, it is officially closed until the bridges to carry it over Garland Road
are finished. Although there are access ramps from Monte Verde, other
streets, and the Mata Elementary School at LaVista and East Grand, there
is not and will not be a ramp from the trail down to Garland Road due to
private ownership of land beside the former railroad embankment - exiting
will require going down behind the buildings that face Gaston including the
YWCA to the point that the rising land meets the trail. 2010-06-06
|Because the Santa Fe trail runs along side our area it may be important that cities don't have the right to demand helmet wearing for adults and can't hand out tickets according to this story in the Dallas Observer. http://blogs.dallasobserver.com/unfairpark/2010/06/one_dallas_bikers_takes_his_fi.php State law apparently specifically prohibits cities from extending this. I have heard from a co-worker of a ticket issued in Garland.2010-06-13|
The Mount Auburn Crime Watch is a limited area from Martinique Ave to
Wayne and East Grand to Santa Fe Ave. It was established by the Dallas
Police Department and provided initial training under a program focusing
on area where crime is above average but in forms that suggest
neighborhood participation will help.
The Watch currently meets every even numbered month on the second Monday at Samuell-Grand Recreation Center at the end of Martinique Ave.
