Land Use Meeting Date Change

This month's Community Land Use and Planning (CLUP) Committee meeting has been rescheduled to Thursday, Aug. 13, 7 p.m. at the neighborhood office building, 1845 Stinson Parkway, due to National Night Out falling on the regular meeting date.

All are welcome to attend the meeting. Wheelchair accessibility is via the side door along 19th Avenue NE. 

On the August Agenda

One way to get involved in your neighborhood and see what's happening is to attend our monthly neighborhood meetings -- and to vote and weigh in on the business of Windom Park Citizens in Action, your neighborhood organization.

Our next neighborhood meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 18, 7 p.m. at the Windom Park Recreation Center, 2251 Hayes St. NE (enter on north end of Pillsbury School building). All are welcome to attend.

Agenda items include:

  • Community discussion with city council member and police regarding Johnson Street traffic issues as we continue to move forward with our neighborhood Small Area Transportation Plan;
  • Money: Bring your ideas on how to spend it! We'll provide a brief overview of WPCiA funding streams, you provide the ideas and dreams on how to use it to make our neighborhood even better;
  •  Annual neighborhood vote on WPCiA operating budget;
  • Windyfest: Give us your feedback on the June 20 event. Did you go? Why/why not? What did you think? Help us plan and tweak for the future.

Accessible location near bus lines. Free parking and free "Kids Corner Hang-Out" child care supervised by park staff during this meeting. Call us to request other accommodations seven business days in advance.


The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (of Composting)

At our February 2015 neighborhood meeting, residents learned the best ways of environmentally friendly backyard composting to keep pets, wildlife, kids and your neighbors safe, sound and happy. With WPCiA's backing, City Council Member Kevin Reich agreed to move forward with a proposal to change the city's composting ordinance. We continue to follow this topic and advocate for the suggested changes. Residents have proposed that, at a minimum, the city require lids and enclosed bins for backyard compost projects to cut down on the possible spread of toxins created in the composting process. Please see the city's web site for details on proper methods of backyard composting and what materials cannot be placed in your bin.

"Kids Corner Hang-Out" Available During Meetings
