Block Watch Grant Projects
The major projects and their related discussion:
• Block Watch signs- Kerry and Jon to survey to determine locations for block watch signs
• Solar/Motion sensing lights — easements, etc. were surveyed at night to determine the best location for installing the lights. 8 locations were identified and the lights have been ordered. Ellen Bilbrey to contact APS to verify their posts can be used.
• Utility Easement Fencing/Gates — Due to the limited interest in the vendor community, Jon and Kerry requested that the vendor who provided the application grant bid be used to commence installation.
• Entry Pillars/signage — Greg Shouten, a neighborhood architect, has assumed responsibility for the design of the pillars.
