To obtain a tree removal permit, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org (link sends e-mail) or call (727) 893-7471.

Come on out to the Central Oak Park Annual Holiday bash! We'll have activities for the kids, good food and plenty of holiday spirit, maybe even the COPNA traditional karaoke later on. Please bring a dish and any refreshments of your own chosing.
The Welcome Committee ...will be preparing the Welcome Baskets to distribute to our new neighbors soon. Any current paid business member that would like to provide their own flyer, brochure, pamphlet, coupon or menu to add to Welcome Basket for this month, please FB message David Butler.
Yesterday we lost someone in a senseless accident that was well known and liked; for many of us simply by waving to him as he manned his post making sure our children got safely back and forth to school. A number of people have reached out asking what COPNA can do to support his family during this time. There have been suggestions of flowers, a candlelight vigil, starting a fund for the family to help cover expenses or even trying to erect some sort of memorial. I don't know the family personally to know just what they need right now and don't want to intrude on their time now so I'm hoping others reading this may have a better idea. I do know the family lives at 4520 9th Ave N - less than 2 blocks away from where he was struck so a memorial there would be a very constant reminder that I don't think we should do without solid confirmation that it wouldn't add to the family's burden and that seems something we should look at after some time had passed. Flowers are obvious but don't seem to fully reflect the recognition of the contribution Mr Roundtree made for so long to our neighborhood that everyone's been trying to express. Suggestions?
Someone suggested this helpful site for people to sign up to take meals so we've set that up:
Just a reminder that there is NO General meeting tonight. The City still is using our regular space at the library, bars are too loud to do when it's more meeting/less social time and other places we looked into holding it at wanted several $100 to rent their space. We will have another meeting before the end of the year and will update everyone as soon as we have a suitable space/date/time. ...
