Volunteer Opportunities to Prepare for St. Patrick’s Celebration

On Saturday, March 7, LGNA volunteers will be working with Explorer Scouts to construct 750+ temporary “No Parking” signs. We’ll meet at the Tietze Park pavilion at 9:00 AM until approximately 11:00 AM. Breakfast will be provided by LGNA, Blue Goose Cantina, and US Foods. Bring a hammer if you have one. After construction, the signs will be transported to storage, so trucks will be appreciated.

On Thursday, March 12, volunteers can go to 5843 Vanderbilt between 3:00 PM and sunset to be assigned to sign-posting crews. Crews consist of a driver to carry the signs and 2-3 “installers” to walk along and post the signs. Instructions and some mallets are provided; however, please bring a hammer or mallet if you have one. Depending on the number of volunteers, we’ll continue until all signs are posted. Dinner will be provided by LGNA, Blue Goose Cantina, The Dubliner, State Representative Morgan Meyer, and US. Foods.

For additional information on either event, email Director1@LGNA.net or call 214-821-2562.

January Crime Reports

The January crime reports are below. Simply put, best month ever. There were only 8 TOTAL crime incidents in the residential part of the neighborhood. It wasn’t that long ago that we would have 8 burglaries per month alone. There were no home break-ins this month though there was a string of garage break-ins in the BACD area and small cluster of car break-ins in the M-Streets East area, this may be the lowest number of car breakins I’ve seen in a long time. I spoke to our ENP officer and he tells me that residential crimes were down all over the city in January mostly due to the cold and wet weather we had. I’m not going to complain about that, but don’t expect that to hold as the weather improves. The only down Continue reading

December 2014 Crime Report

The December crime reports are below. There was only one Auto Theft this month. This is back down to normal after several months of abnormally high numbers of auto thefts. We continue to see car break-ins (BMVs) sprinkled throughout the neighborhood, though nothing higher than the usual amount. There were three tailgate thefts this month on Anita, Ellsworth and Marquita. Each incident happened about ten days apart. If you drive a pickup, try to keep it off the street.
