We are in need of volunteers to help us make a BIG impact within our little community!
Council Member Pool has generously offered to help us improve our neighborhood by facilitating a Mobility Work Group & a Neighborhood Planning Committee for Milwood in the near future… so now we just need volunteers to help establish the committees and gather the feedback / divide the work load.
1. Mobility Work Group to address Traffic Concerns present and future to include such concerns as cut through traffic, Dorsett/Railroad, Adelphi/Waters Park, Crosswalk into Balcones Park, Amherst/Duval Intersection, Turn Lane onto Adelphi from East bound Parmer and others. Volunteer or Sign up to Learn More HERE.
2. Neighborhood Planning Committee to get Milwood in the cue and to create a neighborhood plan which could be so beneficial to have on record with the City as it allows us to take a proactive role in the planning process and decide how our neighborhood will move into the future by establishing our desires on land code within and surrounding our neighborhood. Volunteer or Sign up to Learn More HERE.
Did you miss the Milwood Neighborhood General Meeting? That’s ok, check out the notes here:
General Meeting Presentation
Our neighborhood kids will be out and about Trick-or-Treating this Halloween, Monday, October 31st!
This year Milwood NA, Walnut Crossing NA, Party at Your Door and Milwood Library have partnered to provide a map of the houses that will be accepting Trick-or-Treaters on Halloween including those honoring the Teal Pumpkin Project which means you will also have Non-Candy options for kids with food allergies, etc. To sign your house up, please complete the form below.
Check back closer to Halloween for the Map of Participating Homes.
Participating Homes are encouraged to Sign-up their Homes and to stop by the library’s front display to pick up a Free Paper Teal Pumpkin to post near their yard or door on Halloween. Kids who need Non-Candy Treats are also encouraged to stop by the library to pick up Teal Pumpkin Stickers to wear on Halloween to alert Homes that Non-Candy options are preferred. These items can be picked up a Milwood Library during open hours – Free to all! Thanks, Twilight Faerie & Party at Your Door for the Stickers and Signs!
If you are looking for houses that are providing non-candy items you can refer to the list to know what houses are participating. While your out enjoying the sights and sounds of Halloween look for the Teal Pumpkin cut outs posted on houses. You can also refer to Walnut Crossing’s list of houses if you would like to venture over Amherst as well to add more non-candy Trick or Treat opportunities for your child.
Have a safe and very Happy Halloween!
