Heidi Hefferlin stated that being proactive as a neighborhood will increase our political power to effect change and requested that groups note important issues that need change going into the future. The items identified will become issues we will address with the city and through our association moving forward. The groups noted the following goals/needs: 

*Create Gateways to our neighborhood at the four major intersections (Broad and main, 20th and Broad, 20th and Market and Market and Main Streets.

*Create a seating area with benches and trash cans in the current tree Alley 
parallel to 14th street 
*Define the parking on Main Street so that crossing Main Street is safer.
