Due to a conflict with Lake Hills Church, (funeral) we need to reschedule our LHHA meeting to Thursday, Nov. 21 at 7 PM. Please help us get the word out and share this info with any group within the neighborhood of which you are associated.
Lake Hills Church has a conflict (funeral) and we will have to move our meeting this week to another date. We are waiting to hear from the church to find out if Thursday, Nov. 21 at 7 PM is available. Please share this info and stay tuned to our communications to be able to attend.
After the shooting incident in the neighborhood a few months back, it became obvious that we needed a quick method for disseminating information during emergencies to a large group in the neighborhood. One of our neighbors volunteered to put together a alert system that works similar to Amber Alerts. Anyone in the neighborhood can subscribe to the alert system by sending the word “details” from their cell phone to 55678.
The system will be used ONLY for emergencies such as verifiable threats that impact our neighborhood. This could be criminal, weather, long term power outages or other incidents that impact our residents.
The LHHA board encourages all of you to participate in this free opportunity. You will NOT be enrolled in the program unless you follow the instructions below:
Remember – SEND the word DETAILS to 55678 on your cellphone.
Many of you have seen the digital display along Alcoa Hwy that announces that the exit from Alcoa Hwy to Montlake will close on October 23. The Blalock project manager explained today that Montlake will remain closed until the completion of this phase of the Alcoa Hwy expansion.
This means that all residents of Lakemoor Hills will only be able to exit Alcoa Hwy heading south at Ginn Rd. and Maloney Rd. You will be able to enter Alcoa Hwy heading south at these two roads also.
But if you wish to head north to UT Hospital or downtown, your only choice will be to enter Alcoa Hwy by crossing the Maloney Rd. bridge over Alcoa and use the exit from the round a bout to access the northern lane.
If Montlake has been your entry and exit of choice, you may need to plan to add a few extra minutes to reroute to Maloney for the next 6 or 7 months.
PLANNING (previously called MPC) has published their draft agenda for their October 10, 2019 meeting. Item #7 under STREET NAME CHANGES is a proposal to change the name of Ginn Rd. (from Alcoa Hwy to the intersection with Maloney Rd). to Quiet Side Drive. There has been a sign posted near the intersection of Alcoa and Ginn that announces this proposed change. Those of you that think this might not be such a good idea may want to attend the meeting that afternoon at the City County Building Main Assembly Room at 1:30 PM.
Planning staff had decided that this name change was necessary since with the Alcoa Hwy construction, Ginn Rd. no longer aligned and renaming the roads would reduce confusion.
We are blessed to have Dick Graf sitting on that board so you may want to share your thoughts about this with Dick before the meeting. He has pointed out to the board that the Ginn farm was located on this side of Alcoa Hwy so history supports the road remaining the same name.
