WBNA Meeting May 9th 2019

The Regular Meeting of WBNA May 9, 2019

The meeting was called to order by President Ronnie Marler at the Cole/Ustick library.  

Johnathan reported a $1,700.00 balance in our Zoom Grant from Boise City.

Energize Boise has approved two projects  – Settler’s Canal (Goddard beautification) and the Spaulding Ranch orchard. For the Settler’s Canal we will partner with the irrigation company, Neighborhood Woods, Capital High school horticulture and experts on natural indigenous plants of Idaho to improve the area.  A barrier along the ditch will be needed but the ditch needs to be accessible for the irrigation company to maintain.  Several ideas to improve the area is to post a history of Settler’s Canal, upgrade the bus stops and possible cover them as well as benches for the public.  Discussion followed on the Spaulding ranch orchard, traffic, foot paths and time lines.  We should know more about the funds for these project in July.

Discussion followed on art work for the neighborhood as well as benches.

The picnic tables for the new shelter at Fairmont park are at the contractors, but the shelter it self has not arrived.  The pad is ready when the parts get delivered.  A celebration including a sidewalk caulk art contest, face painting, coloring project, photo booth and “fun stuff” for the kids will be available when the structure is assembled and ready for the public.

The Block Party Trailer was discussed, but needs to be reserved for events from the city.  

Walk Settlers project planned for Saturday May 18th at Noon
The plan is to meet up at the LDS Church parking lot and walk to Pesto’s Pizza where we will discuss the project and have a slice.

A potluck is being planned for Friday July 26 at the new Fairmont Park pavilion.  Mary Margaret will be in charge with Johnathan, Jannette and Chris serving on the committee.  The area needs to be reserved from the city.

Branding was discussed.

The garage sale will be August 31 with Johnathan and Garret making arrangements.

Discussion on Art Zone Christmas Bazaar.  Everyone who worked last year felt it was a worthwhile project and with a few improvements – will be again.  Annie suggested including the Windsted Park Neighborhood association since they are right across the street.
