City of Spokane candidate forum today

The Manito/Cannon Hill Neighborhood Council is hosting a city candidate forum today, Thursday Oct. 13, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. at The Woman's Club (9th Avenue and Walnut Street - enter from 9th Avenue). Organizers say all candidates for school board, mayor, city council president and city council have confirmed their attendance.

It’s the begining of craft show season

The blog got an email from the people behind Handmade Parade, a craft show and open house that's held on Dec. 3 at a private home (2518 S. Magnolia Court).
Handmade Parade is looking for vendors featuring handcrafted items, art work and crafts for this year's show.
For more information visit the group's website here.

This is the third year for the Handmade Parade. Jane Harper, one of the organizers, wrote in the email that it's a great venue for new crafters and hobbyists to test the waters and show their wares. Vendors don't have to remain on-site all day and there's a $25 registration fee to reserve a spot. Commission is collected based on sales. Vendors may apply until Nov. 1 - the application form is available on the website above.

Re-posting: new date for traffic meeting

The city is hosting a traffic calming orientation on December 8, 2011 from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. at city council chambers. The orientation will include a presentation of the 2011/2012 traffic calming program and explain how your neighborhood can apply for funding for traffic calming projects such as speed bumps, roundabouts, crosswalks, flashing signs and traffic islands.

Better get there:  participating in the orientation is mandatory if your neighborhood would like to apply for funding.
No need to RSVP – just show up.
If you can't make it at this time, the training will be available online at a later date.

About this blog

Welcome to the South Perry neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last four years I’ve lived on South Perry Street.

I love the neighborhood so when time came to pick an area for The Spokesman-Review’s first neighborhood blog, the choice was simple: South Perry is where it’s at.
