I attended my first Brookside Business Association meeting this morning at JULIAN. These folks know how to run a meeting: the agenda was followed, business was discussed and we were finished in one hour! Here are a few things I learned at the meeting to share with you:
*There is a petition going around to business owners along 63rd St to change the parking from a two hour limit Monday-Friday to a two hour limit seven days a week. This would prevent outside food vendors from parking for an unlimited amount of time, which takes away from local Brookside eateries.
*New construction work will begin on the Commerce Bank location in September.
*The new principal of Southwest was at the meeting, Ed Richardson (not sure if that is correct, could not hear the pronounciation). (And I tried to find his name and info on the KCMO school district website–no luck). I plan to interview him for a future blog post. He is from Yuma, AZ.
A short post today but informative! Thanks for reading.
