Las Vegas, NV  89102





1)         Welcome and Introductions:  in attendance where Shawn Spanier, President; Dan Connell, Vice President, Dana Russell, Secretary and 12 neighbors


2)         Variances:  Notices were received by Shawn, scanned and emailed to the Westleigh Neighborhood email list.  It listed (3) billboards; a Loanmax; a restaurant; and meeting dates for the Planning Commission


3)         Neighborhood Watch Street Signs; “Please Join” forms and window decal: Shawn is submitting to Bolden Area Command the placement for the Neighborhood Watch Signs.  The April Meeting flyers will be asking each neighbor to contribute $1.00 to help defray the costs for the signs.  If anyone completes the "Please Join" form, they are getting the orange window decal to show their participation.


4)         How to garner neighborhood participation and support:  

            (A) Best if flyers were distributed to the homes which will occur for the April 11th meeting. 

            (B) It was suggested we mail out Meeting Notices to new neighbors.  Our Neighborhood Planner, Anne Kilponen, provided me a list which I will use for the April Meeting and May 19th Porch mailers.  If you know of a neighbor who isn't on our email list, please have them email me at to get on the list.

            (C) Bring in a guest speaker for April Meeting.  Suggestion where:

                        1.         NVEnergy and lighting for the alley.  Known as the PAL Program.  It no longer is being offered but they will continue to support existing customers.

                        2.         Gardener and curb appeal

                        3.         Plumber and irrigation tips

                        4.         Real estate agent and how to preserve/increase property value

            (D) Change the day and time of week of meeting
