Lots of Hillyard meetings this week

The Greater Hillyard Business Association is meeting on Monday Dec. 12 from noon to 3 p.m. at the Outlaw Cafe located at 5012 N. Market Street. This is a special meeting about the utilities and maintenance payment plan for the Historic Hillyard Business District that’s been proposed earlier this year. See the agenda here (Word) and the minutes from the Nov. 17 meeting here (Word).

Then on Wednesday Dec. 15, Mayor Mary Verner and Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick along with city staff and city council members will be at a public meeting also at the Outlaw Cafe from 3:30 to 5 p.m. This meeting is a direct result of a letter written and signed by Hillyard business owners and neighbors, asking for more police protection in the area - especially in the hours between midnight and early morning. Many business owners have video surveillance inside and outside their stores in a effort to cut back on shoplifting and drug dealing - but problems persist. The meeting is (of course) open to everyone.

 

 

GHBA meeting today at noon

The Greater Hillyard Business Association has it’s board meeting today at noon at the Outlaw Cafe. And Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m. is the usual meeting time for the Historic Hillyard Merchants Committee - also at the Outlaw Cafe.

If you’d like to stay in touch with your local COPS Shops, join them here on Facebook. The social network makes it easy to keep up with a variety of community groups; if you explore a little you’ll also find that many of your favorite Hillyard businesses also have Facebook pages.

And yes that’s snow out there and it’s going to continue to fall for a while. Drivers were making their way downtown this morning without too much drama, but please do take your time - and don’t follow too closely.
Homeowners are responsible for keeping their sidewalks clear of snow and ice - if you have a moment, check on elderly neighbors and make sure everyone is okay. Small favors, like picking up a few things at the store when you’re going anyways, or sweeping the frontsteps for someone who can’t do it alone, means the world at this time of the year.

About this blog

Welcome to the Hillyard neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last six years I've worked for The Spokesman-Review.

In April, I started a neighborhood blog on South Perry Street (where I live). When it came time to expand the blog activity, Hillyard was an easy pick: There is so much going on in this neighborhood in terms of new businesses and street improvements, festivals and new construction - and there is a strong sense of neighborhood history and pride. I'm looking forward to highlighting all of that on this blog.
