March 25th Meeting

One more post before the night is out. I had a request from one resident for minutes from our March 25th meeting. Official minutes will be recorded more formally going forward, but a brief summary will have to do this time around. Thanks for your patience.
  1. Charlotte Knights Update: Dan Rajkowski, Vice President & General Manager, was present with several representatives from Odell. The process so far has been one of "stops and starts" due to lawsuits from Jerry Reese. Presently the club expects construction to begin in late 2008 or early 2009, with the park opening in April 2010. This, of course, is contingent upon the speedy resolution of litigation. Mr. Rajkowski's Architect explained how the ballpark will be placed on the site, and noted several features to integrate its pedestrian walkways with Romare Bearden Park and surrounding parcels.
  2. Election: Please see your new Third Ward officers, at right.
  3. CMPD: A brief CMPD report was given. Overall, the basic recommendations continue: do not leave valuables in sight, in your car.
  4. Community Garden: A Community Garden work day is planned for Saturday, April 5 at 9am.
