East CAC Meeting Minutes
April 2009
Submitted by Secretary Sue Sturgis

The monthly meeting of the East CAC opened at 7:05 p.m. on Monday, April 20, 2009 at Lion’s Park Community Center, with 51 people attending throughout the evening. Chair Mark Turner opened with announcements, noting the birth three weeks ago of a baby boy to the area’s community policeman, Officer Kryskowiak, and his wife. Turner also reported that a recent trash cleanup in the north part of the CAC was a success, with car tires, a rusty bike and two couches among the items removed, and participants enjoying snacks courtesy of the City of Raleigh Community Services Department and Dunkin Donuts. In May there will another cleanup of the stream area along Brookside Drive in cooperation with the Mordecai CAC, with more information to come.

It was also announced that a petition would be presented to City Council on April 21 on behalf of Enloe and all city high schools to boost the number of police officers in those facilities. Currently all the schools have one officer, but concerned parents are asking for one officer per 1,000 students. It was noted that intensified policing has made a positive difference around Enloe, which has been experiencing problems with gang activity and robberies of students and staff.
