Lineberry Alliance Proposed By-Laws and Founding Meeting

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

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.

Front Yard Parking Making Tracks in Comp Planning

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

Text Change TC-7-09, Front Yard Parking (FYP) for single family detached dwellings is on the Comprehensive Planning Committee agenda this week. The meeting is on Wednesday, September 15, 2010 at 1:00 pm in Room 201, City Council Chambers, at 222 West Hargett Street.

The latest issue being looked at is how homes fronting on thoroughfare roads might be impacted. Planning Director Mitch Silver brought up this topic at last month’s meeting. This will probably be the bulk of the talk at this meeting. Past meetings that I’ve attended have seen support from citizens around the city, with only a few people speaking in opposition to the text change. My opinion is that most citizens would support this text change to improve quality of life issues in their neighborhoods. (more…)

Trailwood Hills Pool to get Barbed Wire

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

Beginning around May 15th (2 weeks before the pool opened), we [Trailwood Hills] started experiencing problems with people (kids and adults) jumping the fence to get into the pool. There has been a considerable amount of damage done to the pool and the pool equipment, furniture, bathrooms, etc. since that time, including glass in the pool that caused us to have to drain, clean, and refill the pool.

The pool fence itself is being systematically destroyed by fence-jumpers. As you can see from the flier [PDF], we have some good video footage of the persons responsible for the damage the weekend of May 15th, but there have been several more instances since then and it does not seem to be slowing down.

Lineberry Alliance Creating Board of Directors, Organizing

Friday, May 14th, 2010

It’s amazing what the Lineberry Alliance has become over the past few years. What once was a vision of joining neighborhood associations together, has grown into a very informed group of neighbors that care deeply about their community. It started with a simple idea, a website –, and an email list. The email list has grown from just a handful of folks to a list of almost 300 people. We added a FaceBook group and continue to collaborate on ideas to improve our neighborhoods and our quality of life.

Over the past few weeks, a core group of individuals has been meeting to discuss what’s next for the organization. I can’t announce the names quite yet, as we are still defining roles and who is committing to those roles. But it feels like it’s the right time to let our members know some of the things we are planning. I think it’s better for you to be involved early and not be surprised at some of the things that might be changing. (more…)

The Trailwood Hills annual homeowners meeting took place on Tuesday, April 6, 2010.  We had Captain Perry, who is the Captain for our District, and Officer Draughon, who is Raleigh’s PROP Officer, attend.
