Neighborhood Safety Committee Meeting 

November 3, 2008 7:00 p.m. 

St. Timothy Lutheran Church, 1465 Victoria Street North 


In attendance: Marc Prokosch, Doloris Rufenacht, Camille Schafer, Cathy 

Connor-Pearson, and Panod Klongtruatroke. 

Meeting began at 7pm 

1. Newsletter Article 

We have decided to do a newsletter article focusing on the vacant house issue. 

This will include information on locating where vacant houses are, what the 

definition is, and who to contact at the city if a neighbor has concerns about a 

vacant house in their neighborhood. 

2. Dolores as co-chair 

We decided to add Dolores Rufenacht as co-chair for the committee. 

3. Invitation to Tina McNamara 

Tina is Commander for Western District police.  Since we are trying to rebuild 

our block club network, and we are also trying to find other ways that the 

committee can be effective in helping to promote neighborhood safety, we 

thought it might be helpful to ask her or someone from her office to come to the 

next committee meeting to hear their ideas about how we could be effective in 

building a block club network and other ideas to meet our goals.  This invitation 

has been extended, and it appears we will have a guest, whether it is Tina or 

another officer. 

4. Block Club Leaders 

Panod has started mapping out actual blocks covered in the task of expanding 

our block leader list.  Camille discussed that in conversations with other COs, a 

year to a year and a half is a reasonable goal to accomplish a complete, rebuilt 

block club leader list for the district when starting from scratch.  This will 

therefore be the ongoing goal of the committee for the foreseeable future. 

Meeting adjourned at 8:15.
