Neighborhood Meeting - November 1

Our Next Neighborhood Association Meeting
November 1, 7:00 PM
Lakewood Property Owners Association Hospitality Room
4500 Lakeshore Drive

This is a very important meeting for our neighborhood association

It is time to elect new officers for our association. We need persons to serve as President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.
Currently only one person has expressed a willingness to serve as an officer.
We ask that any of our members, who would like to serve as an officer, please contact Presley Melton or Charlie Knott in advance of the meeting. This is vital to the future of our neighborhood association. If you have questions about the responsibilities of the officers, please contact Charlie Knott.

Contact Information
Presley Melton Chairman of the Nominating Committee
753-7788 Presleymel@aol.com

Charlie Knott President
554-0425 charlieknott@sbcglobal.net

We will also take nominations from the floor at the meeting.

Also at this Meeting
Aldermen Charlie Hight and Murry Witcher have both said they will attend. You will have an opportunity to hear about current issues and ask questions.
Robert Fureigh, candidate for Ward 4 Alderman and Shane Stacks, Candidate for District 15 Justice of the Peace also plan to attend.
We will also have an update and discussion on the development across Five Mile Creek.
Development of Subdivision is Under Way across Five Mile Creek
Metropolitan Realty has begun development of Overbrook Addition, Phase 19, on the north side of Five Mile Creek adjacent to our neighborhood. The development is on a tract of land approximately twelve acres in size. The tract is bounded on the north and east by Sherwood and on the west and south by North Little Rock. It is to have 22 lots, about one-third acre each.

A bridge is being constructed at the north end of Fairway Avenue to access the development. A road will extend about 1200 feet north with houses on either side. Plans call for the road to terminate with a cul-de-sac and not connect with Sherwood streets.
This is very important to our neighborhoods, because connecting with Sherwood streets would increase traffic through our neighborhoods on Fairway and Somers. Our association, under the leadership of former president, Nate Brandes, took an active role in safeguarding our neighborhoods during the early stages of project planning.

Metropolitan Realty has had extensive studies done under the direction of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Corps of Engineers. We presently foresee no problems with this development, if it proceeds according to approved plans.

Additional Information
If you would like additional information, please email Charlie Knott at charlieknott@sbcglobal.net . I have a drawing that shows a layout of the development and provides additional information, which was not practical to include in the newsletter.

Ward 4 Alderman Election
Alderman Murry Witcher is up for re-election as alderman. He is being opposed by Robert Fureigh. Please plan to attend our November 1 association meeting, where you will have an opportunity to hear the candidates speak and to ask them questions on issues important to our ward and city.

Email to Aldermen Charlie Hight and Murry Witcher

Charlie and Murry,
It is my understanding that one of the main considerations in establishing overlay districts will be the rate of traffic accidents in the area being considered.

I have reviewed a traffic accident summary report prepared by Traffic Services of North Little Rock for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2008. It appears that the locations of McCain and Landers ranked first, and McCain and Warden ranked third in the rate of traffic accidents, followed by McCain and North Hills at ninth (still high). This must be taken into consideration in recommending these overlay districts.

I am opposed to the overlay district on Warden Road between Somers and West Commercial because of the proximity to the homes on Oak Tree Circle in Lakewood Northeast. I am also opposed to an overlay district on McCain Blvd between North Hills and McCain Mall because of the proximity to homes in Heritage Park.

I ask that you take this into consideration. Thank you.

Charlie Knott
President
Northeast Lakewood Associated Neighborhoods

To: Mayor Hays and City Council members

I ask that you please consider the following comments on Ordinance O-10-35

Provide Adequate Opportinity for Public Comment
Everyone interested in this issue should be given an opportunity to review this ordinance and comment on it after any amendments are made to the current ordinance on the agenda for the May 24 City Council meeting. Please extend the moratorium as necessary to provide this opportunity, as would normally be provided on any ordinance of this importance. A number of concerned citizens have attended many committee meetings and City Council meetings for over a year to provide input on this issue--all the more reason they and other citizens should be provided the opportunity to comment on the ordinance before it is finalized.

Protect our Neighborhoods
The definition of electronic changeable copy signs (ECCS) should not be amended to exclude from regulation those ECCS that have a change frequency of one hour or more. This opens the door for this type of sign to be installed outside overlay districts. I am concerned that this will allow these signs in neighborhoods at locations surrounded by homes. It was my understanding that all City Council members wanted to provide protection to residential property owners from these signs interfering with the enjoyment of their homes. There are several statements in the ordinance expressing the intent for such protection.
I suggest that the definition of ECCS should not be dependent on any change frequency.

Limit the Permit Period for ECCS
The ten-year permit period for ECCS should be reduced to a period of no more than three years. This will provide a reasonable period to evaluate the impact of these signs on our community, including effect on any nearby homes, traffic safety, and appearance of areas where they are installed. More extensive comments on the permit period are included in a "communication" on the agenda for the May 24 City Council meeting.

Thank you,
Charlie Knott
President
Northeast Lakewood Associated Neighborhoods

Census Scams







NLR citizens be aware of possible census scams. Workers WILL NOT ask for your SSN, money, harass you, or email you.

The NLRPD is advising all citizens to be aware of a possible census scam and to protect their personal information. It is important to remember that there are distinct differences between a real census worker and an identity thief trying to fraudulently obtain your personal information. US Census workers will have identification but sometimes identification cards can be fabricated... So, it is VERY important to remember what Census workers will NOT do.

Census Workers WILL NOT
1. ask for your social security number of ANY type of financial information
2. ask for money or say that you owe money
3. 20 harass or intimidate you
4. contact you by email.

By remembering these simple guidelines the citizens of NLR will be able to protect themselves from anyone looking to target unsuspecting victims.

In addition to that we provided information about good-paying Census jobs to about 15 people, looking for employment. When we can help anyone find a job these days, it's a good thing.
