There have been some recent gun-related incidents on Spencer Road, including two instances of a gun found along the road, and three reports in the last few months of gunshots being fired. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported in any of these instances.
In response to concerns about the increasing frequency of gun-related activity, the Spencer Road Neighborhood Association will be holding an online neighborhood meeting on Zoom at 7:00pm on Thursday, May 6th. We have invited our neighborhood’s common council representatives, a representative from the Ithaca Police Department, and other members of the community to join the conversation to discuss our concerns and share strategies about how we can move forward as a neighborhood community, including precautions we can take to reduce these incidents and ensure the safety of our neighbors.
We hope you will join us in this conversation. Please register for the meeting. When you register, you will receive an email with instructions on how to join the Zoom session on the 6th, either online or by phone. If you have questions about how to join, please email us at SpencerRoadIthaca@gmail.com.
