Beautification Meeting Minutes

Lots of plans are in the works and we're looking forward to a busy Spring and Summer!

Thank you to Bennett Compost for joining us at our January meeting! We learned so much about composting! Did you know we live in the densest of composting areas in Philly?! SO COOL! 

Tim was also kind enough to follow up one of the questions with an email and a link to information about a mayoral debate focusing on green issues: http://my.pennfuture.org/site/Calendar?id=112581&view=Detail

Brainstorming 'retreat': We would like to get together to brainstorm ideas to help move the neighborhood forward in 2015.
We have a few ideas already
Working with SPR to get distribution boxes
Working with Donnely Distribution to prevent advertisements being left at uninhabited homes, etc.
Town hall poster boards where community members can write what they want to see happen in the neighborhood.
Would you like to be a part of this? Have ideas for where/when this should happen? Email us at clean@newboldneighbors.org

PHS Grant: We have submitted a proposal to PHS for electricity and benches at Dickinson Grove. Fingers crossed! We should find out in a couple months if we were awarded this grant!
