April 16 – 18, 2014 is almost upon us and we are putting the final touches on the inaugural regional Neighborhood Redevelopment Conference. 

We are delighted that your neighborhood group has agreed to participate in “A Taste of Memphis” at Tiger Lane.  This event, which will feature our “Neighborhoods of Choice” will be the only segment of the conference open to the general public free of charge.  So, feel free to bring your family, friends, neighbors, your whole neighborhood, because we plan to have a great time.   

As mentioned to you a few weeks ago, a meeting will be conducted at Tiger Lane so that you can see exactly where the event will take place.  The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, April 3rd, at 2:00 p.m.  It should take no longer than 30 minutes.

Property Management Meeting

We will be meeting on March 24th, 2014 at 11:00 am at MIFA.  I hope that you can attend. We will be moving forward to free our neighborhood of property owners that are housing illegal activities. We also wish that since you are property owners you will attend to learn of the laws that we are enforcing to bring up the property value in the neighborhood and to free the neighborhood of unwanted traffic.

We are suggesting that property owners keep their properties clean from trash, overgrown grass and weeds and to light up their lots. Also we will discuss the appearance of properties including dumpsters misplaced and fences that are broken down. We suggest property managers to maintain cleaning of properties to keep the outside appearance neat and clean. Please join in to help your property value increase. We can only do so much by ourselves so we're asking that you participate. Thanks.
