  2. Chad West invited several residents to talk about what local residents want to see in the next

Bond package. Carole Somers-Clark in Kenda North represented Annie Stevens Park. There was a

second open meeting at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center. It was a chance for people to state what

they want as far as streets, parks etc, in the upcoming Bond package. Again, Kenda North and

Carole Somers-Clark presented for Annie Stevens Park.

  1. Kenda North has spearheaded the development of a survey related to Annie Stevens Park. Jeff

Herrington helped prepare the survey. At the May business meeting Monty Ayers had volunteered

to take the survey to all homes in Stevens Park Estates. This option did not seem viable due to

difficulty of getting returned, completed surveys. It was suggested that in addition to sending the

survey by e-mail on Constant Contact, some surveys could be distributed and completed at the First

Friday in August 2023.
