There is space for more than 20 people plus a few more if some of us bring our own lawn chairs. In case of rain, we will move inside, where masks are preferred for all.
If he is available, our city council representative, Doug Happel, will join us to talk a bit about the budget and American Recovery Plan Act (ARPA) funds that will be coming to our community over the next few years. Because there are a lot of budget and other council meetings happening, he may not be available. He’ll come if he can.
Otherwise, it will be an opportunity for us to interact in person and, maybe, talk about what you want our Neighborhood Association to focus on. There’s not a fixed agenda for this meeting.
Thanks to those who attended our first National Night Out/Open Park at Highland Park! We were lucky to have visits from the La Crosse Police Department (including a K-9 officer!) and the Fire and Rescue crew and truck.
