NORTH SIDE CIVIC GROUP LAYS OUT AGENDA

The North Side Civic Organization, once a vital voice in the North Side community, is once again coming to life.
The organization had disintegrated in recent years, but Sunday afternoon a group of North Side residents led by Sen. Lorraine Berry met at Larry's Hideaway to get the organization back on its feet.
And they have an ambitious agenda to improve the quality of life in the area, which includes the estates of Mafolie, Misgunst, Lerkenlund, Wintberg, Hull Bay, Dorthea, Bonne Resolution, Caret Bay, Skyline, Peterborg, Rosendahl and Mandahl.
Reopening of the Dorothea Fire Station was high on the list of planned improvements, which include a junior high school, road repairs, regularly scheduled Hull Bay water testing, Hull Bay Sewage Plant repairs, a playground, and repairs to the Hull Bay ramp, for which Berry said she has appropriated $50,000. Her office said Berry is waiting for the administration to allot the money.
Berry said she was pleased by the turnout of more than 25 area residents. The group also discussed curtailment of crime in the area, and the use of government-owned land at Hull Bay as a playground. Berry said the group has fund-raisers planned, and it presently has a healthy treasury of about $5,000.
The group elected new officers: Anna Arnold, president; Erva A. Denham, vice president; Regina Helene Mea, treasurer; and Madelyn Thomas, secretary.
The next meeting is scheduled for Sunday, March 11 at Larry's Hideaway.
