Thursday Quarterly Meeting

Happy New Year to everyone! I just wanted to pass along the news that I’m the new president of Rosewood Community Council, and I look forward to meeting more of you and working together on neighborhood issues over the next couple of years. Jenna Stephens has done an outstanding job as president over the past four years, and she’ll be a tough act to follow. But I’m ready to get started and give it a try. Our next quarterly meeting is Thursday, Jan. 21, at 6:30 p.m. at the Ben Arnold Boys and Girls Club. The agenda will include updates on the Landlord Ordinance that’s making its way to City Council as well as a preview of the renovations coming to Owens Field Park. I hope to see many of you there, and spread the word to your neighbors and friends. In the meantime, I can be reached at mike.rosewoodcouncil@gmail.com.
Thanks, and I hope to see you soon,
Mike Miller

October 17, 2013 Meeting Minutes

Jenna Stephens called the meeting to order at 6:30 pm. The meeting began with elections for the RCC board. All current board members ran for re-election, with one contested race for Vice President (Pete Mayers). A vote was taken for the VP race, which resulted in Mike Miller being re-elected with a vote of 14-1.

Jenna commented that there has been an uptick in home and car burglaries which CPD PACE Officer Alex Broder said may be attributed to the state fair. She encouraged all residents to contact CPD for a free home security assessment.

The RCC board elected to let the temporary community character overlay expire after learning that it was not protecting properties as intended. The City intends to rewrite its zoning laws within the next two years and the community will be able to provide input. Jenna also reminded residents to keep their dogs leashed within Bates Park. Some residents near the park have expressed frustration with unleashed dogs entering their yards.

Karl McCollester presented the new Voterheads website, a free service that allows citizens to receive information about local politics, upcoming meetings, and elections. Voterheads hopes to partner with RCC to provide meeting information and allow for online voting on RCC issues.

Melissa Spring provided meeting attendees with an explanation of the Richland Library’s bond referendum campaign. The $58 million dollar bond will allow the library to improve its main location, build new libraries in rapidly growing areas (Ballentine and Sandhills), and renovate and improve all existing branches.

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts spoke to the attendees as part of an effort to visit all city neighborhood associations. Mr. Watts explained the purpose and responsibilities of the county coroner’s office. The office recently earned a national accreditation.

With no additional business, the meeting was adjourned at 7:30 pm.
