Oct. 6 Meeting & Update from the President

Thank you to everyone who helped with PorchFest or came out to listen to the music! The musicians were great, the weather cooperated and it was a good event overall. We had so much fun that we’re going to do it again next year! We took notes on ways to improve and are going to get started planning much earlier. Look for the first planning committee meeting to take place in March!

If you haven’t been on the city’s website lately, you may want to check it out- http://lansingmi.gov/ It’s been redesigned and is much easier to navigate. They have launched a new mobile app, Lansing Connect which is a mobile and online service request system. With this new system, it is very easy to take a picture of an issue such as park graffiti or a code violation, mark it on a map and send a request. This will replace the SeeClickFix app so go ahead and download the new app if you haven’t already!

We will be meeting next Thursday, Oct. 6th from 7-8pm at St. Casimir to review the park assessment that we conducted last year and identify priorities as a group before attending the parks board meeting on Oct.12th. We plan to present our suggestions for Moores Park based on current uses and the assessment findings.

The MPNO officers are working to wrap up the two grants that we received this year and starting to look at options for next year’s grants. You’ll notice a brick entrance sign going up soon in the 200 block of Barnes which, was one of the grant funded projects for 2016. We’ll be asking for help with landscaping around it so that the sign really stands out!

President, MPNO
