Town Watch28 Dec 2011 08:35 am

Is See-Click-Fix just not getting it done for you? Are you someone who notices the slightest changes to properties and businesses on the blocks surrounding your house? Have you seen an increase in illegal bandit signs (will they REALLY buy my house in seven seconds?) or dumping? Are you wondering what can be done about it? The answer: Passyunk Square Civic Association Town Watch. And we’re looking for a few dedicated volunteers to take leadership roles on our Town Watch Committee.

Wanted: Two or three outgoing, organized, energetic and vigilant volunteers to share in the task of organizing and leading our monthly neighborhood town watch events. The ideal candidate would have one hour per month (or every other month depending on how many leaders we can get) to lead a group of other like-minded folks for a stroll around the neighborhood to find and report property crimes, dumping, blight, damaged streets and sidewalks, potential illegal construction or non-permitted businesses. The town watch leader for the month will act as a point of contact for other volunteers who want to participate and will choose what section of the neighborhood the group will focus on. In addition to one hour of on-the-street work, the town watch leader will submit the findings of the group to the City through its 3-1-1 system. The Civic Association can be the direct link between the Town Watch leaders and the people at the City who can get things taken care of quickly.

Our next scheduled Town Watch walk is Saturday, January 14 from 11am to noon. We already have a few people who are interested in participating but we’re still looking for some good leaders to guide the group. The Board will provide advice and suggestions for first-time leaders to help them get adjusted to the job. It’s the best thing YOU can do for the neighborhood with the shortest monthly time commitment. Please email us at OR chat with a board member after the general membership meeting on January 3.
