Join your neighbors and enjoy a day of community as the South Tabor neighborhood is holding our 10th annual Harvest Festival Sunday, September 8, Noon-4 pm. There will be fresh pressed cider, grilled corn on the cob, a seed, plant and garden tool swap, music, vendors, children’s crafts, and a raffle. Stop by the field near SE Clinton & 68th to find out more and support our neighborhood.

Land Use committee this month continued the discussion regarding SE Woodward & 62nd; repaving has begun and we expect speed bumps to come once the paving is complete. Additionally we are planning to discuss an engineering solution to the dangerous conditions for school kids and pedestrians in this stretch of Woodward in an upcoming meeting. Other future and ongoing construction in our neighborhood has our attention. Join us in September for more information.

At this month’s general meeting, we hosted speakers from the city and neighboring neighborhood associations to discuss the proposed city code change 3.96. The discussion concluded by voting in favor of sending a letter to City Council encouraging them to vote against the current iteration of the proposed change to city code 3.96. For a copy of this letter check our website southtabor.org.

As always we invite our neighbors and interested parties to our monthly meetings; Land Use next meets September 17, 7-8:30 pm, and the next General Meeting will be September 19, 7-8:30 pm. Join us as we meet in the Trinity Fellowship building, 2700 SE 67th Ave. Enter on the east from the rear parking lot.
