Council Recap: Happy 4th of July!

Dear District 8,

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend. There are some great events happening in District 8, including the Cherokee Triangle Association's first Summer Concert at Willow Park and the Tyler Park Neighborhood Association's Fourth of July Picnic. If you know of a District 8 event happening this weekend send us an email so we can help spread the word!

Speaking of fun events, I hope everyone will mark their calendars for our next Neighborhood Nights on Wednesday, July 21st. We listened to your feedback and made some adjustments to make it clearer what's happening where. We will be putting out a map next week with our featured businesses and the deals they are offering, as well as the trolley stop locations, and the sites of other fun activities (spoiler alert: there will be balloon animals!). We hope you'll take this chance to come out and support our wonderful local businesses.

On another note, I hope that as you all think about our country over this weekend, you'll take a moment to think about the past year, and what we can do to strengthen our city. After the holiday, our city will begin ramping up conversations about how to spend the whopping $350ish million federal stimulus dollars from the American Rescue Plan. You can learn more about this funding, what it can be used for, and share your ideas with the city at this link.

Finally, our friends at Metro Animal Services asked us to remind pet owners about some of the best practices for keeping your pets safe during the fireworks. See the graphic below for details.

Happy Fourth!
