April General Meeting Monday, April 16, 2007
Paul Robeson Theater, 40 Greene Ave. (Carlton/Adelphi)
7:00 pm refreshments/7:30 pm meeting AGENDA
7:30 pm Andrew Dolkart, Historic District Expansions in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill. Dr. Dolkart is a nationally recognized architectural historian. He wrote the reports for the original landmark designations for these two neighborhoods and is working on the reports required for the proposed extensions. He is in high demand and we are very fortunate to have him working with us and making this presentation including maps and slides. Don't miss it!
8:30 pm Residential Parking Permits- As our neighborhoods experience intense development, parking is becoming even more difficult. One of the proposals is residential parking permits for those who actually live in the neighborhood. Those without permits would not be able to park in specific locations during certain hours. This idea is being proposed for all the downtown neighborhoods surrounding the proposed Atlantic Yards site. Learn a little more about what people like and DOT doesn't like about this idea.
Sunday, May 6, 2007, 12 to 5 pm. The Society for Clinton Hill House Tour
VOLUNTEER: We need a lot of helpers for the day of the tour. We need people to help with the clean-up, set-up, ticket sales, and house sitting. These are very important tasks and are critical to the success of the event.
WHY SHOULD I VOLUNTEER? …you might ask? Well, it is a community- friendly thing to do. You will get to buy a House Tour ticket for half price ($10.) You will get an invitation to the very private and fabulous party afterwards. And, you will meet a lot of new friends who share your love of Clinton Hill.
HOW DO I VOLUNTEER? Send an email to the address below and someone will contact you. Tell us your preference for task and shift. Of course clean-up and set-up will occur early on Sunday. The ticket sales and house sitter shifts are 11:45 to 2:30 and 2:15-5 pm. So, volunteer, please. We're counting on you!
Please note: This meeting is not on the normal SCH meeting day. It is on MONDAY. See you there.
