· TTNA Park: Current construction on new sidewalks, new trees are going in and the dog run is being cleaned up. Metro Parks have stepped in to complete the work, so look for Phase 1 to be wrapped up in October.

· St James: TTNA will be setting up a booth this year. We will be selling dog treats to raise funds for our Neighborhood. We need volunteers to run the booth, look for more info on how to sign up.
· Sidewalks- many areas are dangerous and uneven. Councilman James has been good about working through the open list but takes a picture and send to Dan if there are any issues around your home.
· Waste Baskets: TARC will pay for a new metal wastebasket if it is near a bus stop. Working to get those installed where applicable in Toonerville.
