New Dedicated Team Targets Debris Removal on Public Property

Debris Response Team-6

 

The City has established a new dedicated team to respond to complaints associated with debris left on public property, including along roadsides, trails and creeks as well as in parks and around public buildings. The Debris Response Team (DRT) will remove debris proactively through a routine inspection program as well through service requests generated by community members.

DRT will work closely and coordinate activities with several City departments, including Housing & Community Services, Police, Fire and Water through the Homeless Encampment Assistance Program (HEAP) to ensure its actions are within HEAP protocols and within the restrictions of a preliminary court injunction.

The DRT crew consists of four dedicated full-time staff members and a supervisor who have been reassigned from other duties within the Transportation and Public Works Department to focus solely on removal of debris from the public right of way.

How to Request Service

In order to make reporting easy, community members may request DRT services in the following ways.

Do you live on Tenth, Klute, or Lincoln Streets between Washington and B Streets?

If so, your home is probably part of Klute’s Addition (filed with the County in 1906, but lots weren’t sold until the 1920’s).

Happy New Year!

My New Year’s resolution is to start posting again on our neighborhood website and to that end, youll see a few come through in your email today. ~ Denise Hill

Avenue 320 Apartments

We’re starting the new year with another developer’s project on Lincoln Street in our neighborhood. While the neighborhood welcomes more housing downtown, we have concerns with the size and scale of this proposed apartment bulding which at 4 stories will significantly overwhelm the one-story homes adacent to the property and nearby. Our historic district guidelines limit the height of new construciton to 2 stories or 35 feet. Unfortunately, developers can propose a higher building and, if approved by the City boards and commissions that review the project, they may get the OK to do this. There is also a concern that this project will add to the cars parked on our streets and generate increased traffic through the neighborhood (especially on Lincoln Street).

For more information on this project visit: https://srcity.org/3160/Avenue-320

If you have concerns, we encourage you to emal them to Adam Ross – the city Planner on this project: ARoss@srcity.org 

There is also an online petition you can sign. Here is the link:  https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/320-college-apt-development

Location May – 320 Project proposed on Lincoln Street

 

Hi, Everyone,
It’s been a while since we’ve sent a post to the St. Rose Neighborhood. If you are new to getting these – welcome! They are generated from our website: strosedistrict.org

First some good news! After several months of working with staff from the Planning Department, monitoring presentations to the Planning Commission, Cultural Heritage Board, and the City Council we were successful in changing the height limit on 12 historic properties in the St. Rose District from a potential 5-story height limit to a maximum of 3 stories. The residents invovled (Greg Parker, Roy Loessin, and Denise Hill with guidance from Council Member Chris Rogers) were concerned that a recent push by the Planning Department to apply a 5-story building on the parcels invovled would make these properties appealing to developers who would purchase the properties to destroy them and build new. On Tuesday, November 16, the City Council voted unanimously to put a 3-story limit on these buildings. Here are images of a few of the buildings that now have this extra protection:
