Neighborhood Meeting Minutes

Thursday, August 23, 2018   5:30 to 6:45 PM

Charlie Joseph Senior Citizen Center 
Thanks to all for the pot-luck dinner!


  • Opening prayer: Dean Hoskins


  • All present introduced themselves.


  • Guest Speaker:  Cynthia Smith – running for School Board, District 4 – She attended elementary school in our neighborhood Lola Culver Elm. She has served as an administrator 5 years, most recently at Ribault HS. She wants to see increase in teacher longevity and faith based/business partnerships.


  • Minutes from July meeting were approved.


  • Panama Park Community Development Corporation – we are now registered with the State as a Corporation and have a federal number.  There was excited discussion as to what this might afford us.  It gives us the ability to put our events under this name and raise money for projects.  Kristy Kennedy mentioned that eventually we would be able to help our neighbors who can’t, to fix up their homes.


  • Our City Library is currently winning!  Go to and vote before the end of this month! Also, there are free meeting rooms in our libraries for you to use and the Main Library has so many skill building seminars for free in the “maker space”.  Check it out! 

  • 4th Panama Park Come Together 2019 date is set for May 18, 2019 – Some volunteered to help make it happen!  Mark your calendars now and check out where you can help on our web page: Or, contact Roxie McLeod 515-7944 if you are interested in volunteering for our 4th annual PPCT.
