Quicknotes

- WECAN Omlette Breakfast is this Sunday, 9-noon at the American Legion. Tickets are $9.00 and are available at WeCAN or call 952-472-0742.

- The Mound/Westonka Special Education Advisory Council (SEAC) is having a FREE Family Open Gym for families of children of Special Needs at Grandview Middle School on Saturday, 3-5. This council is made up of staff and parents from the school, and are doing great things to help make our school and community a great place for people with disabilities.

- Thursday, Feb 21st at 6:30 another meeting on drug abuse in our community will be taking place called, "Heroin: It's in Our Community". This meeting will be mostly the chance to break out in smaller groups, and get information and have a discussion that may relate directly to your situation. It will be held at the Gillespie Center.

- Westonka Community and Commerce (formerly Celebrate Greater Mound) is having their monthly luncheon Thursday next week at Bethel United Methodist Church at 11:45.

- A unique meeting is happening Monday night at Mound city hall. The Mound Planning Commission (which I sit on) is having a joint meeting with the Mound City Council to discuss a couple of issues. I am looking forward to discussing some of the financial aspects of developments I have written about here a couple times. Unfortunately the idea of discussing "Complete Streets" was not included on the agenda. I was a little slow to suggest the topic, so it's probably my fault, but I intend to keep pushing the issue... especially as we are about to rebuild several of our MSA streets. Look out Three Points Blvd, you're first on the docket!

- Everytime I talk about the Open Mic night at Threshold with someone, their eyes light up. It will be cool to be hanging out in Downtown Mound on Saturday night, starting at 7:30. Please come and enjoy some snacks or drink, and watch our talented youth perform. It will be a fun night!

- It's been a great week, and I've already shared how humbled I have been by Strong towns earlier this week. Here's a video of a speech Chuck Marohn, from Strong Towns, did a few weeks ago. As much as I am uplifted by how he shares my story, the bigger message is important. The message that we can continue to improve and make Mound a great city, a great place.

Please watch this video, not because it has pictures of me in it, but because it's about the possibility of the things we can do together. Especially if you are a Mound city official.
