Pillars still in progress; design has been nearly finalized. We are in the process of gaining approval from the owners of adjacent property. Locations permitted at 333 W Missouri & 7th Av & Colter. Linda Longmire (resident on Meldock) has not returned calls or letters requesting permission for the 3rd location. The cost of each pillar is estimated at about $2,000. Anne Grass has contact info for the owners of the radio station.

Colter Park
Kerry Moss & Jon Douglas have been vigilant in monitoring the homeless’ invasion of the property at 7th Av & Colter. No Trespassing signs were installed and an ‘Authority to Arrest’ was recorded. It appears that these actions have been successful. No Day Camping signs to be installed soon.
