King’s Grant Community League President, Steve Nimitz, recently shared the following updates with the board of directors. The next meeting of the board is December 11th.
Stumps at Witt Park were removed yesterday. The flagpole installation, starting with the foundation, is supposed to begin today. We might have a flagpole within days. After that, the scouts will return to work on new benches and site restoration (with new topsoil in some areas).
- I stopped at Witt Park this morning to check out the work. I found the electric meter destroyed again. This is the 2ndtime in as many years. There is glass all around. I did not have time to pick it up. I will file the police report and contact the electric company. Very disappointing. My guess is that the vandalism happened Wednesday night.
- Kevin joined me this morning at8:15 to walk the median that separates KG Road as you enter from the intersection with N. Lynnhaven (at the traffic light). A rep from the city’s Highway maintenance was there at my request to assess the curb around the median where it is damaged or sunk below the roadbed. I am optimistic that we’ll see some corrective maintenance done on that. If you don’t know, KG Road and N. Lynnhaven will both be repaved this year which is why I asked the city to come take a look.
- A KGCL member volunteered to decorate the KG walls with large lighted wreathes for the holidays. I plan to retrieve our Christmas lights from the shed this week, take them home, and test them. The plan is to decorate Witt Park on 2-3 Dec (we obviously need the power meter fixed before then).
