September 1, 2010 Update

Please remember the renovations to the Jackson Avenue Parking lot beginning today. Details were provided in the previous post.

Almost all of the construction has now been completed with only some landscaping remaining.

As we noted earlier, Gay Street will be closed for an additional two days in order to plant the large trees. This will likely occur in late September/ early October.

The Block Party is scheduled for October 1, 2010 and will coincide with the October First Friday.

Please mark your calenders for this exciting event.

The 100 Block Association has been meeting for organizational purposes and I would encourage folks on the block to help out and participate.

Congratulations to the folks at Slamdot on their five year anniversary. The had a very nice event at their business yesterday and I am sure they would be happy to visit with any of you.

Of course the September First Friday is this week and this will be the first time we have had this event with the road completely reopened. I hope to see you there.

Thanks for your interest.
