Ward 3 Neighbors Alliance Wants You!

It’s not about the organizations, it’s about the citizens.

Here’s the announcement of the meeting that was held last Saturday. When minutes get posted I will add them here.

The Annual Meeting of the Ward 3 Neighbors Alliance will be held on Saturday, November 8, 2014.  It will be at St James United Methodist Church, 3255 N Campbell Ave, Room 6, at 10:30 am.  Please join us.

We will give you an update on what has been happening over the last year, and will be electing new board members. We are increasing the Board from 7 to 9 members. So we have 4 openings.  Four individuals have expressed an interest in running, and we will accept nominations from the floor.

I have attached two documents to this invitation – the agenda for the meeting and bios of the 4 current candidates.

Hope to see you there,
Sandy Miller, W3NA Treasurer

I was there. The few of us in the audience who were not the board agreed. There are things to do!

Updates on the Campbell Avenue Enhancement Project

I recently asked for an update about projects in the neighborhood and received this email from Sam Credio

Thank you for your interest in the Campbell Avenue Enhancement Project. Your timing couldn’t be more perfect! I am scheduled to give an update to the Campbell Avenue Business Partnership on Wednesday, November 12 at 6:30 p.m. at St. James Methodist Church, 3255 N. Campbell Avenue.

We have finalized design and submitted the funding authorization package to ADOT back in May 2014. The funding for this project has been approved which will allow us to move forward with advertising the project for construction bids. Through the public process, we identified the best time to construct this project is during the summer months to minimize impacts to the surrounding businesses. As a result, we are anticipating a May 2015 start date for construction with a duration of 90-120 days.

I’ve attached two documents for you to share with your neighborhood association. The first is a presentation I made earlier this year to update the community on the progress of the project. At that time we added several landscaping features to the project and we asked for feedback on whether to select a lush green plant pallette or a desert plant pallette. The overwhelming response was in support of the lush green option. This has since been implemented into the plans and is largely what I will discuss at Wednesday’s meeting. The second document attached is a Frequently Asked Questions form that includes some great information about the project. This should answer most of your questions but I’d be happy to answer any other questions you may have.

Thank you,

Sam Credio, P.E.
