7:30 to 9pm
7:30pm — Public Safety update for Beat 9X moderated by the beat's Problem Solving Officer and Neighborhood Services Coordinator.
8:00 General meeting topic: Response to the recent damage to the Key Route plaza mural by artist Rocky Rische-Baird.
In December, the new tenant of 4063 Piedmont Ave (formerly J's Hamburgers & Such) cut a large window through the Key Route mural by artist Rocky Rische-Baird on the wall facing the public plaza. Many people have been unaware of this, as it has been covered by a large tarp. Please come and help PANIL plan the neighborhood response to this damage.
The mural was financed by donations from the community and has great emotional connection for many people because so many of the figures depicted were neighbors and local merchants. The city has stopped work on the new window hole while it investigates permit problems with the work.
If you cannot attend the meeting, PANIL is collecting statements from neighbors of what the mural means to you. If you have a photo of yourself or your family or friends in front of the mural, please send it, too (the highest resolution file you have). Sending statements or photos implies permission for PANIL to use them in a public posting; please let us know if you wish to share your statement only with the steering committee.
