Patty & Lisa - do you know who empties the trash cans on Chicago?
Patty Smith
50:14
I do not, will check on this tomorrow when I'm at Buri and Chicago
Patty Smith

There was a volunteer group that came in to clean up the memorial garden area last week
Vanessa Haight
51:15
Sounds like it's City of Mpls - anyone want to follow up with CM Goodman & Osman's office to ask about more frequent pick-ups?
Lisa GEEHAN
52:51
I can follow up with that.
Vanessa Haight
53:28
I got several volunteers - thanks! The more that call and request it, the better. We may also want to start reporting full garbage cans to 311.
Patty Smith
55:19
I suspect those might be the adopt-a-trashcan program. I know DID takes care of those in other areas but they don't stretch that far
Vanessa Haight
55:53
Our office can work on a list of resources to call other than MPD. Anyone want to assist?

That sounds great!

Brian-I’ll check my notes to see if I still have the contact for Metro Transit
Jim Hirst
01:09:08
Graffiti? Can we centralize a report of all throughout the neighborhood and get reported to the city to have addressed? Or identify the affected property owner to have addressed?
Matt Christian
01:11:09
Jim, to your point, Assemblies of God recently was tagged/graffiti'd on brick building along Portland. Their building manager was attempting clean up himself but having a difficult time.
Jim Hirst
01:12:40
Yes, I believe graffiti and trash are related
Jon Barstad
01:16:15
has anyone asked the question “what is the root cause” to these issues? trash, needles, etc.? to me it’s all about changing “human behavior” and I believe the best way to do this is provide consequences to the behavior...both good and bad behaviors. So how do we educate to the community a program that could be implemented AND enforced to change the behavior? Can there be incentives to encourage good behavior as well as being certain there will be negative consequence for bad behavior?
Brian Smoliak
01:21:40
I'd like to see a living document that highlights safe, effective, humane practices for addressing root causes (e.g. conflict), problem behaviors (e.g. trespass, drug dealing, vandalism, violence) and symptoms (e.g. graffiti, litter, used needles)
Brian Smoliak
01:22:04
This would empower me as a citizen and neighbor
Jo Herrera
01:25:55
I have to jump to another meeting. It's been great to listen in and I'll try to be at the next one as well. Take care everyone!
