May 4 Meeting of Your Neighborhood Association

Please plan to attend our next neighborhood association meeting on May 4 at Crestwood Elementary School cafeteria. The meeting starts at 7:00 PM, but come at 6:30 to meet some neighbors and visit before we get started. Kevin, Judy, Wanda and I, your officers, look forward to getting to know you.

Aldermen Hight and Witcher plan to attend. Two issues, which we will discuss, are Parking districts and parking regulations, which will impact our neighborhood. Monday night the North Little Rock City Council voted to place a moratorium on electronic changeable copy signs until the end of August this year. This will provide time to study the issue and develop an appropriate ordinance to manage the use of this type of sign. Sign companies and businesses interested in this type of sign have gotten organized, and it is important that we be involved in the interest of our neighborhood and communiity.
Hope to see you Monday, May 4, Charlie

Magazine sales

This is from Ward 1 Alderwoman Debi Ross.
I was in Sherwood at a friend's house and one came to her door.  Their sales pitch is that they are local students working on their communication skills.  It is a group of magazine salesmen.  They do not have a city permit and are not legal in NLR.  If you see them in the area, you should call the police.

Thanks, Debi
