been the official president of CCRA since July, I am amazed at how even
long time members don't seem very aware of what CCRA does. Clearly, we
are not communicating very well, as our volunteer committees are
handling a variety of quality of life issues. So from now on, we will
be posting our board agendas and meeting summaries. The monthly Board
Meetings, usually on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, (except in July and
August and when there is a holiday), are open to our members. If any
member would like to attend, please notify our Operations Manager,
Travis Oliver. In order to attend, your membership must be current. If
you are unsure, please email Travis and he'll let you know.
official term began in July, and our first board meeting for this
fiscal year was in September 2019. Please see the agenda and meeting
summary for September here.
Every month, the board agenda will be posted and circulated a few days
before the meeting, the meeting minutes added the following month (once
the Board approves the minutes) Our agendas to the board meetings are
now on our website.

Increased criminal and nuisance activity in the Neighborhood
is aware of the uptick in panhandling, homelessness, break-ins, and
other crimes and nuisances that are occurring in our neighborhood. We
are currently talking with city officials; however, if you are concerned
about what's going on, we strongly recommend you attend the Schuylkill
River Park Fall Festival on Saturday, stop by our table, and speak with
the CCRA representatives, as well as, Police Captain Michael Hooven and Officer Jesse O'Shea.
CCRA reps will be at the Festival from 10 am to 3 pm; the police will
be available from 11am to 1pm. Please stop by so that we may answer
your questions and hear your concerns.
