Last May we posted an update about creating a board of directors and organizing the Lineberry Alliance. Currently, we are just a loose association of neighborhood organizations and HOA groups that collaborate over email, share solutions to neighborhood problems, and connect with each other to swap recommendations, recipes, babysitters, etc. It’s been a few months since you’ve had an update on the organizational efforts. It’s time to share with you a draft of our mission statement, by-laws, and announce our founding meeting to be held on Thursday March 3, 2011. (more…)

Landlords, real estate agents, and property managers in the Lineberry area should take advantage of this training to educate themselves on how the PROP can impact their ability to rent their property and how to help draft an effective lease to attract good renters and enforce the quality of life issues that often deteriorate our neighborhoods.

The second project idea is for our animal friends and the general environmental health of our neighborhood:
#2 Getting the Dog Poo situation under control. My vision is to have dog bag stations along all of Lineberry Drive, perhaps even Sierra Drive and Trailwood Hills Drive – the 3 main streets in our area. The dog stations create awareness and provides opportunity. Each community could sponsor at least 2 stations and provide a) refill bags and b) volunteers to keep the stations full of bags, throughout the year.
I think as a community, this is something that can be more efficient if we can order as a group and coordinate efforts around an entire campaign. So maybe we can sit down as a group, look at a map, and identify the area’s where this makes sense -or- what area’s stink the worst!
I think having a master plan is key, then each neighborhood can complete their own part. We also may be able to get a grant from the City of Raleigh to help with costs. Note: some area’s like Camden Crossings and Sterling Townhomes already have efforts like this established, we should learn from them and add existing dog stations to the master plan.
Please discuss this idea in our forum at: http://lineberry.org/boards/viewtopic.php?p=107
I had lunch with David and Rebecca today from Grandchester Meadows, property managers for Sterling Townhomes and Trailwood Valley. We are working on a few ideas for the Lineberry Alliance. There are some opportunities to work together on a few things.
One of the first things we want to do is to continue to gather interest in the alliance. We talked about getting information on the Lineberry Alliance on each of their sites. We also talked about a getting some involvement from residents on several different projects. A community wide street cleaning project in May and a dog station project at some point this calendar year.
So it looks like someone jacked-up a few bushes near Sterling Townhomes over the weekend. It’s just lovely how the landscape was tore up and left for the weekly clean-up. Is this a bush-hit-n-run? At least the utility pole wasn’t involved with this and I hope that no one was seriously injured.
