Our agenda will include:

1) De-brief on McKean St Clean-up
2) Plan December Clean-up — proposed for Saturday, Dec. 2, 10:30 am — 10th Street – Tasker to Snyder.
3) Water/Sewage Back-up
4) Community-wide Plastic Recycling
5) Budget — think about what we’ll need in 2007 for clean-ups, other beautification efforts

Special Presentation on Neighborhood Greening — Members of Passyuynk Square Civic Association have been invited to inform us how they got started, what they’ve accomplished to date, what they’ve learned, and most importantly, how we can work together to green our EPX neighborhood.
