Northwood Civic Meeting June 16th

There was a large contingent of political representatives at the Northwood Civic Association meeting on June 16h as well as a good turnout of residents.

Stewart Graham for Councilman OH, James Kennedy for Congressman Boyle and Darien Stafford for Representative Dawkins all gave updates.

Resident issues discussed:

  • Traffic on Castor Avenue
  • Rerouting of buses because of the ongoing work on Foulkrod Street
  • Story about somebody gaining entry to 1301 Wakeling Street with the intention of taking possession and renting it out.  Joe krause says this is a scam going on throughout the city.  He is addressing the issue.
  • Abandoned cars at Oakland and Filmore
  • 1200 block of Filmore sees speeding cars as a big problem.
  • Speeding at Harrison and Pratt.

Issues being resolved:

  • Councilwoman Sanchez has secured funding to begin repairs to the building at Simpson Recreation Center.  We should expect that project to take a year.
  • No truck parking signs are being put up as manpower is available.

Stop signs for Castor Avenue – not yet determined if they will go up.

The next meeting of the Northwood Civic Association will be held on Tuesday, July 21st at 7 PM at St. James Lutheran Church Castor Avenue and Pratt Street.
