Hey Sheri, yes the meeting is on, I just posted the event.
Here is a message I received from Ashley Cortese (firstname.lastname@example.org)
As part of Councilman Adam McFadden's Thurston Road Street Watch program, Lt. Joe Morabito of the Rochester Police Department will be conducting a workshop on how to identify and close down drug houses. The workshop will take place this Wednesday, October 28th at 7 PM at The Rochester Presbyterian Home, 256 Thurston Road. All are welcome to attend this unique program.
THanks for sharing Shawn- Are other people receiving emails about this meeting??? (I know that I have given my address twice and have not received any notifications).
Adam, if you're following this thread can you please comment about what mechanisms are in place (or will be in place) for reporting various activities and (more importantly!) for receiving information back re: the status of various initiatives?
I, for one, am sick of going to meetings, 'reporting things', 'calling NSC' and every other single thing that we're asked to do and NOT getting a response and NOT seeing things happen. We need more ACTION, not meetings!
I just came across a great article, in the Minority Reporter from Oct 9th, about the Thurston Road Street Watch program. It's also captures a snap shot of the state of Thurston Road today, with reactions and views from folks who live, and work there. A must read.
Below you will find links to the Drug House Tracking Sheets that Kris made up, to easily write down everything the police are looking for. I have uploaded a Word file and a PDF file. I also added a new tab at the top of the site called Drug Reporting, that will bring you to this page.
Just came back from memorial service for Paul Vasconcellos who was shot and killed on Post Ave during what appears to be a robbery by a young person. There was standing room only at the Victory church in Henrietta and many attested to Paul's dedication to service and commitment to help others. I felt sad that I had no idea who he was and he only lives a few streets away.
A walk is being scheduled for Saturday morning to flyer the neighborhood with Paul's picture to see if anyone has information. Reply to this if you are interested in helping
