Piedmont Neighborhood General Meeting
April 28, 2016
After discussing the topic of adopting the strip of land between N. Columbia Blvd and the Columbia Slough, a motion was made and seconded to amend our bylaws to expand our boundaries to include this area into the Piedmont neighborhood. This motion was approved with the following vote results: 9 in favor, 2 abstain, 0 opposed.
Follow up needed: Linda will present this information to the Kenton and E. Columbia neighborhoods, adjoining this strip of land to the north and west, for their approval.
2. The Friends of the Peninsula Park Rose Garden gave a presentation about their Preservation Strategy. Please see their website at penrosefriends.org for more information. And please join them for the following events:

3. Friends of Lombard updates and information: Linda provided an overview of the Lombard Reimagined project
4. Piedmont Neighborhood Spring Clean Up recap: thank you to all of the volunteers as well as all those who brought junk and reusable items. This was a very successful clean up with 4.8 tons of garbage disposed of, 2 truck loads of electronics recycled, many items reused by neighbors and the non-profit Teen Challenge and much fun had by all! We will do it again next year in April.
