Dawson National Night Out 2015 Picnic

Give Neighborhood Crime and Drugs A Going Away Party!

 

Turn your porch light on, lock the door, and come on down to meet your neighbors at Gillis Park this Tuesday, October 6th 2015 from 7:00 PM to 10!

This is a spur-of-the-moment group picnic in observance of National Night Out. Volunteers are invited to sign up to form a committee to plan and carry out a major Official NNO block party October 4th 2016!

This committee also seeks to form neighborhood watches, with the Austin Police Department providing a 1-hour workshop on being observant and staying safe!

APD and other local dignitaries have been invited to attend, but due to short notice, we’ll have to keep our fingers crossed. Also, this year’s City of Austin National Night Out Kick-Off Event will take place at Mueller Airport Lake on Saturday, October 3, 2015 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. For more information about National Night Out visit www.nnoaustin.org.

National Night Out is a production of the National Association of Town Watch. They also sponsor a wonderful program called Project 365. It’s an initiative for neighborhood groups to identify and improve or resolve crime problems in our community within a year’s time-frame. Neighbors of Dawson would like to launch NATW’s programs here to address our own local trouble spots.

The address is 2508 Durwood Street. Look for the “Dawson Neighborhood” signs. Please bring your own food and chairs and plan for few plates of extra food to share. The park is alcohol-free and glassware is not allowed. There is a burn ban in effect, so bring only propane grills. A good idea would be to precook your burgers and weiners and heat them up again on site. We’ll share our camping stove.

Town Hall Meeting on Transportation

Conversation Corps is back with another “Town Hall” meeting in South Austin on Saturday, June 27, 1:30 PM!

This public meeting, at the South Austin Recreation Center – 1100 Cumberland Rd., is our chance to meet with public officials in person and sound off about transportation in Austin! Come on out to share your views on automobiles, trains, buses, bike lanes, sidewalks, crosswalks and other ways to get around the city.

“We’re excited to be partnering with MobilityATX in June to bring dialogue about transportation solutions to all areas of town. By joining with MobilityATX for this conversation topic, we’re able to increase the number of decision makers that will be listening to the voices of the community.

The specific focus for our conversations will be about our individual travel behaviors and the personal responsibility we each hold in helping to solve our region’s mobility challenges.  The feedback we receive will be combined with input given through MobilityATX’s online forum and their town hall discussion on June 23. Come share your thoughts and listen to the ideas of others. We’ve saved a seat for you!”

Here are the remaining meetings throughout town for the month of June:

Here’s a glimpse at the topics coming up in future months:

  • July – Affordability
  • August – Community Engagement
  • September – Workforce Development
  • October – Transit Services
