We will again be holding our June Community Council meeting via telephone/video conference. PLEASE NOTE: There will be no July Council meeting. Enjoy your summer!
Tuesday, June 16, 2020 | 7:30 p.m.
Tentative agenda includes safety updates from our Police and Fire departments, opportunities to celebrate our neighborhood's history of fighting for social justice, and updates from neighborhood partners. 

Instructions can be found on the Facebook Event Page.
Kennedy Heights is proud of its history as an intentionally inclusive neighborhood.

Beginning Thursday, June 18, the Arts Center will be offering kits to create a Black Eyed Susan, symbolizing Justice in floriology. Pick one up and create it on your own. On Saturday, we invite all to bring their flowers (or just themselves) to the Arts Center Mansion. We will plant a garden for justice. Then, we will walk to the Annex to host a peaceful protest of the systemic racial injustice still prevalent in our nation. 

Updates will be posted on the Kennedy Heights and the Arts Center's Facebook pages. 
At past meetings, neighbors mentioned their desire for speed bumps along certain high-traffic roads. Funds for speed bumps come from the Street Calming budget. The City Manager and Mayor have both created their budget recommendations, and City Council is currently deliberating the FY21 budget.  The recommended FY21 budget can be read in its entirety HERE.

The Kennedy Heights Communtiy Council Executive board sent a letter to the City Manager on behalf of Kennedy Heights, expressing our hope that funding for the Street Calming projects remain funded, and is working on another to the City Council. 

If you feel strongly about any budget items, including Street Calming, public safety, police funding, or parks, you are always within your rights to reach out to City Council individually and let them know.
The emails of individual offices can be found here:
