For the last few years we’ve been discussing a new vision for our alleys here in Cooper Young and it’s time to finally do something! This month’s general meeting (Tuesday, March 10th) will be an extra important one as we finally present our plan to transform a pilot alley between Oliver and Young. This vision is the result of resident surveys, social media discussions, and direct input from previous community meetings and we hope you love what we’ve put together. As requested, we will also present information on how residents can close their alleys and how this might effect access to certain utilities. We encourage all interested residents to come on out to our office (2298 Young) at 6 pm next Tuesday evening for what promises to be a fantastic and informative meeting!
But wait, there’s more–This month we will also be joined by local resident Mike McCarthy as he shares information about a potential Johnny Cash statue for the corner of Cooper and Young. This statue would commemorate The Man in Black’s first public performance which took place in the old Galloway church nearly 60 years ago. This will be an excellent opportunity to ask questions and share your opinions about a potentially huge change to our main intersection. For more information on this project before the meeting, you can check out McCarthy’s article in the February edition of the Lamplighter.
As always, we’ll have snacks and social time from 6 to 6:30. We hope to see you there!
