Tree Planting –

Arbor Day Saturday, April 27
Planning includes street clean-up, collecting & planting acorns w/ kids (in pots for them to take home), quiz/scavenger hunt, tent, music, food, flier, and donations. A follow-up planning meeting will be held April 10. Tom Sheeley and Sandra Alvarado will do a flier. Mark Carrig will distribute the flier and solicit businesses for contributions. Anthony Liburdi will arrange for Victory House volunteers to distribute the flier.
Lloyd Fillion asked that notes on the March meeting be corrected to show that he was asked to contact neighbors (whose sidewalks are used to store trash /recycling barrels) on Northampton St only. Lloyd reported these contacts had been effective in removing some bins but others, apparently relating to a non-resident landlord, remain. He indicated the next step would be to contact the City for enforcement. The meeting asked Lloyd to do that.
Business listings on CSANA Website –
Mark Carrig asked that our website list of businesses be updated, removing businesses no longer in the neighborhood and adding his, Carrig Kitchens.
