Dog Safety
The committee reviewed a draft letter to Councilmembers Stark and Brendmoen following up on the community meeting. After suggested revisions, Jon Knox will sign.

Hamline/Nebraska Crosswalk
The committee discussed the email from Councilmember Stark’s office informing us that funds for the proposed bump outs will not be available until 2013. We will continue to discuss alternatives that might be faster and more effective. Blank will write a column for the next D10 newsletter about pedestrian safety.

Neighborhood Crime
The committee reviewed the Police Department’s recent crime reports and noted that theft from vehicles continue to be a concern, especially near the park.

Pancake Breakfast
The committee agreed to work with the HHH Job Corps to incorporate some safety themes in the children’s activities that take place during the D10 pancake breakfast on October 27. Rufenacht has several ideas and will share with the committee.
