The Maplecrest Neighborhood Association Meeting Minutes

Monday, August 19, 2019

The members met at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church. Forty residents attended. The meeting was called to order at 6PM by President Jeanine Huber.

The MNA has moved the bank account to Cedarstone Bank. That bank has waived all fees for our organization.

The Metro Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on August 22. At this time, the Selma development is on the consent agenda. After discussion among those present, it was decided to not attempt to have this item removed from the consent agenda. We have successfully opposed the construction of 24 homes on the 4.8 acre site and feel that the current 9 home plan is within the current legal zoning for this neighborhood. Jeanine asked that anyone who has comments to make on the subdivision to do so on the Planning Commission website before Thursday at noon. She is going to ask that the final plat be looked at by our councilman, Jeff Syracuse, and not be placed on the consent agenda. This final plat should be done within the next 6 months.

Paving will occur on Fairway Drive this fall to repair the uneven surfaces caused by the sidewalk construction.
Discussion was held about obeying the school zone speed limits.

Pam Foster, from Second Harvest Food Bank spoke. She said that two mobile pantry dates have been set. These will be held on Friday, September 13 and Friday, October 18 at St. Phillips. Any resident who needs food may drive up beginning at 9:00AM to receive food. Fliers are being sent to all area schools to advertise this event. Neighbors who wish to help pack food boxes are urged to come to St. Phillips at 8:00AM on the above dates.

A Good Neighbor Festival will be held at McGavock High School in late September. Fliers were available at the meeting.

A future MNA meeting will discuss the possibility of reviving a Neighborhood Watch.

The meeting adjourned at 7:44PM.

Respectfully submitted,
Barbara Edwards,
Secretary; MNA

Please note:  The Good Neighbor Day Festival will be held on September 28, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Southeast Community Center, 5260 Hickory Hollow Parkway.
