We want to take this moment to give a brief update and thanks for everyone that came out to the meetings on October 12th, 2015. We would like to give a special thanks to Ms. Sally Heinz of MIFA and Pastor Derrick Davis at The Tabernacle of Praise for allowing us to house our meetings at their establishments.
Thanks to Colonel Houston, Colonel Paul Wright and Michael McCollum for their dedicated services to our communities and also for providing additional patrol and safety to our neighborhood boundaries.
We welcome The Promise Program as they continue to work with our neighborhood and also towards their plans to help those in distress become whole.
Have you seen our Neighbor Watch Signs? They are up on the corners of East and Peabody and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Peabody and a special thanks goes out to Veronica Davis for those.
Our Councilman Ford Jr. was in attendance in our morning meeting and we're appreciative for his presence.
We are asking all property owners to please attend the meetings. If you own property in the neighborhood you should be complying with the bylaws. If you are complying your help is still needed as we continue to move forward with our mission. There is plenty of work to do and we need all residence and property owners to help maintain what we have established and to join in to support our mission to move forward.
Please help us to keep our neighborhood clean by cleaning up around your properties. If there are broken down trees, windows, over grown grass, trash on properties, running over dumpsters, graffiti, you may dial 311 and report. You can report your concerns under Peabody Vance Neighborhood Association. When reporting loitering, hanging out or other illegal activities to Memphis Police Department you many also use Peabody Vance Neighbors Association.
We ask that all apartment owners send out notices to let tenants know of our bylaws of no loitering, loud noise and hanging clothes on the balconies or leaving dumpsters out more than 24 hours after pickup. Please advise no broken windows, blinds and sheets in the windows.
Finally, we need your help to help our community. If you have a service to offer that can help make our neighborhood a better place to live please contact my office at 901-525-1645. We will start a referral list.
This is only an update and recap of October 12th meeting. Again we appreciate you helping us to help make our neighborhood a safe and clean place to live and travel through.
Let's come together in numbers and continue to move forward with our mission. Changing the Image of a Hood to Our Home. See you at the December meeting. Thanks.
President Peabody Vance Neighbors Association
