Three Good Things

Good thing 1: The city council voted to name the Hendrix Street pedestrian bridge after the late Max Thompson, at the request of Max's family, friends, and neighborhood. Thank you, councilmembers. He deserved much more, but her certainly deserved this, too.

Good thing 2: The city council voted to approve the Cedar Street Area Strategic Plan. I think it could help to keep that area of downtown appealing and accessible to an interesting variety of people.

Good thing 3: The city's department of Engineering and Inspections responded almost immediately to one of my neighbors' concerns about a substandard property, which was promptly condemned. Thanks, Danny Nall, for moving so fast.

Thanks to all of you for making this happen.

Although we no longer live in your neighborhood, we will always carry fond memories of Max Thompson.

Thanks for all of your goodbyes.
