RiverView Neighborhood

Association Meeting

Present:  Community Police Officer Maggiacona, Stephanie Van Patten,  Dennis Rondina, Kathy and Kevin Eisemann, Nancy Striuli, Linda Hagstrom, David Woisard, Bernice Dimauro, Tricia Amirault, Brenda Smith, Pauline Genest, Marc Genest.

1.  Officer Maggiacona provided an update on the car break in from a few weeks ago. He then informed the neighborhood representatives of other suspicious activities in the neighborhood.  Three teenagers were seen twice in one night . The next morning, a damaged mailbox was discovered on RIver Vue.  Several other mailboxes were damaged in the Rivervue area. A grill and several ladders were stolen from a porch. They were later apprehended.  Several other thefts from cars were reported.  Items were stolen from mostly unlocked cars.  One thief was arrested in Providence and the stole items were returned to their owners.  99 Mill Cove was renting out to two young men who were formerly from Providence.  The police made their presence known. The police had reason to believe that they may have  been involved in criminal activities.  The young men decided to move. Unfortunately, they trashed the apartment.  A level 2 sex offender is now residing at 47 Whipple.  Keith Burns has been there for a week and has complied with the needed registrations.  The police are monitoring that he remains in compliance.  All the agencies are monitoring him. Given the situation at the house, it is likely that he will not live there very long.  Pauline and Bernice witnessed the man urinating in the backyard.  Bernice called the police and reported the incident.  The minimum housing authority is investigating the owner of the property for substandard housing.  Residents who observe unacceptable behavior are strongly encouraged to report their observations to the police.  Use your best judgment when observing behavior that is not right/acceptable and report it. File a formal complaint in which the behavior that offends is identified. Residents may have to say that they wish to file a formal complaint and not just report an indecent or criminal  behavior. A sit down meeting with minimum housing was proposed to find a solution to the ongoing nuisance the house and its occupant represent to the neighborhood.  Office Maggiacona thinks that his might be an option worth exploring.  The national night out is coming up in August.  Crime watch will set up a table.  Any representatives from our neighborhood association is invited.  A social networking group is an option to stay in touch.  It is called Next Door and is like an online crime watch group.

2.   New Street signs are up and are looking fabulous!

3.  The board met last week and reviewed the investment account.  It was decided to spend some of the money.  Save the Bay and the city are working on improving the end of Mill Cove.  Save the Bay asked for $1,000 for planting materials.  The Lippitt Park needs a fence to delineate the park from the private property. Bill Sears offered to fix the bulletin board and bench.  The association will reimburse him for the materials.  The park also needs some cleaning on a regular basis. Stephanie will ask for quotes to clean up the park three times during the summer season.  The end of  Cady Ave. also needs some attention to clean up and restore the access to the beach.  $7,500 have been allocated for this project. $15,000 have been set aside for all of the projects.  Bernie called the city to turn a street light back on.  She is encouraging others to call as well. You will need to give your name and address so that someone can come out and initiate the repair order.

4.   Fourth of July parade and cookout is scheduled for June 29 at one o'clock.

5.   The block party is scheduled for September.

6.   No yard sale for our neighborhood, but you can contact Stephanie if you want to have one. She will contact another neighborhood association who has volunteered to include our neighborhood streets.

7.   A meeting a couple of weeks ago promised to update the community on sewers, but they were not discussed. It has been rescheduled for May 12 and sewers are the first agenda item.  The cost is a never ending concern.

8.   Stephanie asked for any ideas or suggestions.  It was suggested to ask another landscaper for a second estimate.  Bernie suggested posting the landscaper information on the website.
