River Road Meeting May 12, 2014 – Public Welcome!

RRCO Executive Board Meeting
May 12, 2014; 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
River Road Annex, 1055 River Road
The decision was made in April to further organize ourselves with a Board meeting in May.
Another decision was to reinstate our Pancake Breakfast in September 2014. Jolene Siemsen
will coordinate efforts, and other Board members volunteered to assist. If you are interested
in helping with this September event, please let us know at our RRCO e-mail account:
riverroadcommunityorganization@gmail.com. It was proposed to move the 2015 Pancake
Breakfast to the Spring so we can inagurate a Harvest Potluck in the Fall.
We discussed the crime situation in our neighborhood with Eugene Police Officer Solesbee
and heard his views about what could be done. Homelessness, litter, drug use, gang activity,
graffiti–including bias activity, and other suspicious incidents are of great concern. An
additional session will be held with an EPD officer.
At the April meeting, we also discussed fundraising, Land Use, Homeless Rest Stops, the
Goodwill Building project and community space, the elementary school replacement,
proposed cuts in Neighborhood Services in the city budget and the impacts on
neighborhoods, SCRRIPT Listening Session Training, and the list of goals and activities that
our neighbors suggested at the December Holiday Potluck.

NOTE: RRCO Board and General Membership Meetings are usually held at the River Road
Annex, 1055 River Road. We usually meet the second Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. All
meetings are open to the public with a public comment period.
