Neighborhood Cleanup -Litter Bit Better


Improve the neighborhood you live in and participate in Rochester’s “A Litter Bit Better” city wide litter pick up starting Saturday, April 20th through Saturday the 27th by getting involved with your neighborhood cleanup!

Here are two great ways to get involved:

Option 1:

Trash bags will be available at the Slatterly Park Community Garden Tool Bench, where you’ll find large green bags for garbage and blue bags for recyclables.  The bags will be available for pickup Saturday April 20-27, so you are free to choose when you want to participate during the week-it’s a great way to get the kids involved in the community!  You may choose any area wherever you see trash to pick up within the neighborhood.  The park and the river parkway has already been adopted by the Boy Scouts so it would be nice if people would walk along curbs, and other areas of the neighborhood, but the park is fair game too!  Leave the full bags at the Community Garden Bench, and the Litter Bit Better program coordinators will pick up the bags the following week.

Option 2:

Thursday April 25 @ 6:30pm there will be an organized group cleanup starting from the Community Garden Bench, where you will connect with others and fan out into the neighborhood. 

Thank you for making Slatterly Park a great neighborhood to live in and a Litter Bit Better!

Mini Free Library Program

The Rochester Public Library is coordinating a grant with the United Way to start a program of getting (20) Mini Free Libraries placed in the Slatterly Park Neighborhood in the next year, and is
looking for participating homeowners who have children 0-5, or daycare providers with children of this age.  If you are interested in the program and don’t’ have young children contact me directly to discuss.  Information about the program attached along with an application form that can be directly returned to the Library.  The program is a great way to get children reading at a younger age, and create a community of book sharing.    This program is open to any neighbor living the Slatterly Park Neighborhood.  The great part about this program is that it is entirely free to the homeowner, the libraries are built and installed by the Rochester Public Library, and has an opportunity for your family to artistically decorate it however you would like.  If you have any further questions please contact
Vicki Ernster VICKI@rochester.lib.mn.us

Winter Quarterly NA Meeting Feb. 26

The Slatterly Park Neighborhood Association’s Winter Quarterly Meeting that was cancelled in January is rescheduled for this Tuesday February 26 @ 7:00pm at Hawthorne Education Center, Room 114.

We’ll have a guest speaker from the Rochester Public Library, about a possible grant affecting our neighborhood.

I.S. Vision Plan – City Council Meeting Feb. 20

The Imagine Slatterly Vision Plan will be brought before the City Council on February 20 at 7:00pm at City Hall for a vote to adopt the Vision Plan, and to include it into the Olmsted County Planning & Zoning books  for future use as a guide for future neighborhood development, and for any proposed public infrastructure projects within the neighborhood.  It is important to note that again it is a guide for the future, not a mandate, each and every future project still must go through all of the channels of city government for approval before being built or implemented.

The Vision Plan was last brought before the council in early July of 2012, and was deferred until more informational sessions could be held about the process at the request of citizens. Those well attended public input sessions took place this past fall, which resulted in changes to the Vision Plan. On November 28 a Slatterly Park neighborhood association vote was held in which 92% of the votes cast were in favor of moving the Vision Plan forward.

We are encouraging and welcoming neighbors to come to the City Council meeting in support of this Vision Plan that has been three years in the making, and has entailed several large public input sessions, and numerous hours of volunteer time from the Imagine Slatterly Leadership Committee who are your neighbors and business owners.

As always the Vision Plan can be viewed on the Slatterly Park Neighborhood Association website: http://slatterlypark.org/imagine-slatterly-vision-plan

(The Vision Plan was passed by 100% vote from the City Council to adopt the Slatterly Park Vision Plan, with the removal of text referring to geographic locations within the Sunnyside NA west of Third Ave SE, north of Hwy 14, east of Broadway, and south of 9th Street SE)

Imagine Slatterly Vision Plan Vote

The results are in:  

92% of the voters voted YES when asked  “Do you support the current Imagine Slatterly Vision Plan?”  This signals that the neighborhood is comfortable with moving the Imagine Slatterly Vision Plan forward to the City Council, hopefully in early 2013 to move the vision plan towards adoption.
