DEVELOPMENT (Harold Karabell) :
The property at 4308 Laclede has been purchased by Mr. Shivaram who proposes to remove the existing foundation and build a new 3-unit townhome. He presented elevation drawings (attached) and requested a letter of support from the association. After a brief discussion his request was approved.
The primary purpose of this month’s meeting (our first in-person gathering in over a year) was to honor and thank retiring Alderman Joe Roddy after 33 years of service. Lorraine Simpson and her crew arranged for food and beverages and arranged a table of photographs, historical and current, showing how our neighborhood has grown and changed.
Many words of appreciation were followed by a champagne toast and celebration.
Diana Gualdoni, Secretary
