The South Hill Civic Association and the Spencer Road Neighborhood Association will be having a joint meeting Saturday, February 4th at 9:30am. It will be held at the South Hill Elementary School at 520 Hudson St in Ithaca. (Please go to the front door of the school and ring the bell to be let in – the door will be closed.) At the meeting, we will be discussing the Chainworks District, and traffic/sidewalk issues (including the approved plan to dead-end Spencer Rd at the Spencer Rd/Stone Quarry Rd intersection).
The Spencer Road Neighborhood Association will be holding a meeting Sunday, March 19th at 10:00am at Panera (748 South Meadow St in Ithaca) to plan for our spring neighborhood clean-up (tentatively scheduled for May).
Neighbors are invited to the May 7, 2016 South Hill Civic Association (SHCA) meeting for a discussion on the Chain Works District project. The meeting will be from 9am to 11am at the Chain Works District project office on the Ithaca Commons (133 East State St).
Also, later in the afternoon from 1:00pm to 2:30pm, Vicki Taylor Brous will lead the Jane’s Walk to the Chain Works District project site. The Chain Works District project office on the Ithaca Commons will also be the meeting location for this interesting walk.

5- Spencer Road Neighborhood Association Report
Within the past month, we have seen two residential break-ins on the 400 block of Spencer Road (one during the day while the resident was at work, and one at a different residence at night when the residents were home), along with some vandalism (a resident had their mailbox completely smashed and destroyed one night).
Officer Williamson from the Ithaca Police Department has offered to meet with our community to share experiences and to share ideas. He has reserved the northeast study room (a.k.a. the “Large Study Room”) at the Tompkins County Public Library this Saturday at 10am to meet. Any neighborhood residents, property owners, or other concerned parties are invited to attend. Community members from South Hill are also invited to attend due to a shared increase in residential crime during the past month.
This is a good opportunity to ask questions from an IPD officer about residential crime, home security, and neighborhood safety. Ward alderpersons Cynthia Brock and George McGonigal will also be present.
If you would like to reach out to Officer Williamson separately regarding a question or concern, he can be reached at: JWilliamson@cityofithaca.org or at: (607) 216-3221.
