At our SWHRL May annual meeting on May 20, 2015:
- SWHRL President Nancy Seton highlighted SWHRL neighborhood activities in “Year in Review – 2014-15,” and the proposed SWHRL “To-Do List,” our action items for 2015-16. See attachments on the SWHRL Home Page, for your review and comments.
- We discussed the status of the Strohecker’s market, recently purchased by Bales Thriftway. The new owners want to make the market successful: they have already taken steps to improve the produce and meat sections, and will review pricing. SWHRL has set up a task force to find ways to support and enhance the market. Tell us what would persuade you to shop there more often, and we’ll pass it on. Help the market thrive!
- Bob Stacey, Metro Councilor, talked to the membership about issues Metro deals with, including regional land use and transportation planning (e.g. the SW Corridor Plan/high speed transit), green spaces/parks, recycling, and the zoo.
