Time for Neighborhood Beautification!

Hello Neighbors!

We have two exciting upcoming events that promise to make the neighborhood even more lovely….

First and foremost, we hope you will join us for the:

GREAT AMERICAN CLEANUP: Saturday, April 29th, 9am to 12pm (whether you have an hour or 3, your help makes a difference!)Volunteers meet at Rinconada Point Park (Bob McCannon Pkwy & Painted Rock) for bags & supplies. This is a great time for everyone to pitch in and clean up your own street as well as surrounding open spaces. Imagine if each person gave one hour, how beautiful our neighborhood would be?

Next, our LWNA board Vice-President, Karen Buccola, recently attended the Ladera Medians planning meeting.  She is happy to report that the meeting turned out to be a collaborative effort to design the medians and choose the plants, with everyone pleased with the results.  The actual work will start in August and take 3 months to complete. We’re all looking forward to seeing these improvements!

Ladera West Neighborhood Association Annual Meeting

The Ladera West Neighborhood Association (LWNA) Annual Meeting was held on September 23, 2014 at the Ladera Golf Course. APD Northwest Commander Dodi Camacho and Crime Prevention Specialist Pete Gelabert spoke about crime and crime prevention issues. You can find tips to help prevent mailbox thefts on our Crime Prevention page.

Elaine Romero, Policy Analyst for Councilor Sanchez, spoke about traffic, median, weed and other neighborhood issues.

The attendees shared their concerns and successes over the past year, including having Ouray renamed in honor of the late LWNA President, Bob McCannon.

The Board members were elected for another term and one new board member was elected to the board.
