ICON Monthly Meeting June 24, 2019

We will meet on Monday, June 24, 2019 at 6:30pm at First Church of the Brethren.

ICON Business

  • Approval of May Meeting Minutes
  • Treasurer’s Report
  • City Council Update
  • Problem Properties Update


  • The discussion will focus on the results of last month’s SWOT analysis.

    In the past, ICON has spoken in support of newer neighborhoods around zoning and development changes that were detrimental to neighbors. Should we expand to explicitly represent newer neighborhoods, which share issues like crumbling infrastructure, problem properties, cut-back services and ill-planned development?
