Meeting of November 11, 2008 – Veterans Day

John Dietzman: Welcomed 35 neighbors to this meeting.

First – We thanked Craig Culbertson for his leadership and ongoing guidance through the past four years. Craig will be taking a sabbatical. Craig expressed his appreciation for the commitment and hard work of the many citizens represented by our NITNC. John Dietzman will assume the leadership role for now and announced a gathering on November 24, 2008 at 7 pm at his home to discuss direction and leadership for our council. Bring your nominations and ideas.
Dirt Trail Project: The No Trespassing from Dusk until Dawn sign is still there and seems effective.
Clean Up: of the wooded area adjacent to Indian Trail was postponed until Spring. Residents are encouraged to maintain that area as they can on an individual basis. Community Service demonstrates local concern for those frequenting our area. Groups, schools and organizations are also invited to make a project of “adopting” care of these common areas.

Suzanne Croft: spoke as representative of the Sustainability Council of the Mayor’s office about Green issues.
For information: or
The new LED traffic lights use 1/50th of energy to operate and they last 20 years. Methane is now used to heat the sewage facility and to partially heat an adjacent golf course facility. Energy=Security= less reliance on oil and fossil fuels.
Local and sustainable food sources are being encouraged with emphasis on “green” packaging.

Jim Bakke: The Community Assembly was given an “Envision Spokane” presentation of potential charter changes. Neighborhood Planning preparation continues. A “Storm Management Questionnaire” was distributed at tonight’s meeting to gather input for future planning and results to be announced. Impact Fees proposals will be presented on November 17, 2008 at the City Council meeting.

Chuck Moser and Teri Deno: will report on neighborhood dump passes and clean up issues such as the NITNC Pride Clean Up Days proposed for once per month at the November 24th planning meeting at John Dietzman home.

Walt Jones: Led our membership in recognizing all Veterans for their service to our country, state, community and American Way of Life. NITNC recognized them with applause and public acknowledgement of those veterans in attendance. Walt also presented the report for October as: 10 vehicle prowlings; 2 residential burglaries, 1 garage burglary; 1 malicious mischief; one suspicious person and grafitti at Pacific Park on Halloween evening. Recommendation was made to stay with your car while heating it in mornings. Citations for leaving a car unattended to warm the engine is $124.00 and the number of vehicle thefts are rising. These are crimes of opportunity so can be avoided.

Carl Strong: informed us of the new “Splash Pad” water features our city have recently installed using Bond monies approved for this use. Areas involved in these plans include parks and youth baseball fields at Comstock, Liberty, Shadle, Chief Gary Park, Coeur d’Alene Park, Thornton Murphy Parks, Underhill, Manito, Glass, Franklin and Pacific Parks. Input included surveys taken at grade schools from the children as well as from adults interested and knowledgeable about these.
See for information on Spokane Parks/Recreation Department.
John invited members to view the displays Carl Strong provided explaining the new Splash Pad areas of our city.

The next NITNC Meeting is planned for the second Tuesday of December – the 9th at 7 pm.

Respectfully Submitted
Patty Shadden, Secretary
