Opening question:

Affordable Housing—Is it important? If so, how do we make it happen?

  • City needs to create incentives/rewards for developers who place a certain amount of low-income rentals in each of their buildings.
  • Rent control–freezing rents to prevent dramatic increases.
  • Increasing the amount of housing so the demand is met.
  • Show people that owning a home is not only viable to them but it is a great investment for their future.

Office of Neighborhood Involvement—Mary Tompkins

Crime Prevention Coordinator for Eliot—–

Some concerns within Eliot would be:

  • Bike incidents
  • Squatters in abandoned buildings
  • Gang concerns in and around the neighborhood especially with the shooting that occurred at Rosemary Anderson.
  • Gang Task Force and ONI have created the “Enough is Enough” Program which will hopefully help deal with getting rid of the snitch code.
  • Call Rosemary Anderson if you would like to help volunteer there.
  • Remember you can always file a police report online or call the non-emergency number.

6:30 Welcome and Introduction of Attendees

Minutes read and approved

NECN Update—Joan Ivan

Joan spoke about the restructuring of NECN.  They are the representative of so many people in so many different neighborhoods who want very different things and deciding what they want to accomplish is important.  Meetings have become more divisive than healthy lately, especially with all the major the changes the NECN neighborhoods are experiencing.

Joe Entler moves that Paul Van Orden is our second Eliot Representative to NECN (Joan Ivan is the other and we are permitted two).

All in Favor—motion passes unanimously
