The Slatterly Park Neighborhood Association had very successful elections at our annual meeting in October, and we have a full board of newly elected, and current re-elected board members. At our annual board meeting this past week we nominated board positions, and I am happy to announce after almost 10 years as president of the Slatterly Park Neighborhood Association, Randy Schubring was appointed the new president of the Slatterly Park Neighborhood Association. Randy comes with a strong leadership background that includes his current position as the Public Policy Manager at Mayo Clinic in which he has worked with federal, state and local governments, is a graduate of the Leadership Greater Rochester, and a past president of a St Paul neighborhood association. I was re-elected to the board, and will gladly help with the transition and make a smooth transition for Randy, and will continue to be involved. Please welcome Randy, and make sure that Randy is copied on any and all communication that relates to our downtown neighborhood in the future, and feel free to pass this along to others who are in leadership roles that I may have missed.
It is with gratitude and heartfelt thanks as past president of the Slatterly Park Neighborhood Association to have represented our downtown neighborhood residents, and have worked/partnered with the City of Rochester, Olmsted County, RNeighbors www.rneighbors.org , Rochester Area Foundation www.rochesterarea.org and PRIME www.rochesterprime.org , and so many other great organizations, and I welcome continued connections with Randy, and the Slatterly Park Board. We have an opportunity to redevelop our downtown neighborhood, and follow the Destination Medical Center progress, as we have certainly taken steps ahead of the wave of redevelopment with our Imagine Slatterly Vision Plan, which was developed in concert with the Rochester Downtown Master Plan, and adopted last March. We look forward to progress, that strengthens the integrity of our downtown neighborhood, and will have our Imagine Slatterly Leadership team in tune with any upcoming developments, along with our engaged board.
Sunday October 26 @ 1:30pm
Volunteers are needed this Sunday October 26 @ 1:30pm to help clean up the Riverside Garden Boulevard plants, please bring a cutting tool, and gloves if you wish. If we get a few people together this shouldn’t take any longer than 45 min to an hour. The boulevard gardens are in front of Riverside School, and have been adopted by the neighborhood association, since it is one of our main connections into downtown on foot/bike.
Thank you in advance for your help!

The Slatterly Park Neighborhood Association will be hosting a water stop in Slatterly Park for the Annual Med City Marathon, this Sunday May 26th in the morning from 8:30 – 12:00pm. The Slatterly water stop will be at mile marker 19 in the park, which is part of the 26.2 mile loop through Rochester, which is located at the interesection of 8 1/2 street SE (across the bridge from the Slatterly Park playground on the main trail). This is a great way to showcase our neighborhood, and show our support for the runners, who are raising money for a great cause.
We need several volunteers to make this happen, please contact Evelyn Oftedahl email@example.com if you are able to volunteer, you can help as long as you would like, even if you can only give an hour. This event is a great family friendly event!

Crime E-Alert for July 29, 2013 To request more incident information please e-mail the incident number to firstname.lastname@example.org
Recently, two Level 3 Registered Predatory Offenders have relocated within the City of Rochester. Both of the Offenders have been living in the 2100 block of Campus Drive Se and have moved
Allen Lee Lloyd – DOB: 8/12/1966 has relocated to the 800 block of 9th Avenue SE, at 815 9th Ave SE
William Burton-James Solbrig – DOB: 7/28/1983 has relocated to the 1000 block of West Center Street
Both of these offenders remain under Intensive Supervised Release (ISR) supervision and have many restrictions. It should be noted that I have not scheduled a new community notification meeting on either of these two individuals due to their inclusion in meetings at the time of their release from the MN DOC in the past two months. Concerned citizens may obtain more information on these, or any other Level 3 offender, by visiting http://www.doc.state.mn.us/level3/Search.asp. Additionally, if anyone still has questions/ concerns or wishes to discuss a meeting for a particular group, please feel free to contact me directly and I will do my best to assist.

The performance by the Word Players is a gypsy wagon and Shakespearean tragedians and minstrels bring fun, merriment, dancing, and music to local parks this summer. The Words Players Theatre Polite Mechanicals will “ennuncitate and expostulatate and interpretate and musicate” at Arts on the Avenue. Look for them performing Twelfth Night in Rochester Parks in June. This is not your English Teacher’s Shakespeare.
