Neighborhood Watch

Nosy neighbors are the key to keeping a safe neighborhood. Our neighborhood watch program, headed up by board member Steve Sullivan, is an effort to encourage neighbors to watch out for each other. We also use it to communicate in person, by e-mail, and by telephone. To get on the list, please contact Steve at stevesullivan77@yahoo.com or 944-9297.

Get out your Broadmoor Directory and call the folks around you. Please get to know them.

If you see absolutely anything suspicious, call 911.

Grant adds playground equipment for youngsters

The City of Little Rock recently awarded Broadmoor a matching grant to buy playground equipment for the "little kids" area of Broadmoor Park. We have purchased a nice play set and mulch for the fenced in area near the picnic tables. Volunteers will assemble the set soon. To help, e-mail edwardswaim@yahoo.com.

What can YOU do for Broadmoor?

When there is bad news, people are often at a loss for something positive to do for their neighborhood. Living in Broadmoor is much more than a monthly house payment, you have to be involved. Here are some opportunities:

1. Go next door and meet your neighbors. Stay in touch with them. The Little Rock Police Department time and time again tells us at meetings that watching out for each other is the key to crime prevention.

2. Participate in the neighborhood watch. E-mail me at the address below, and I'll get you involved.

3. Attend monthly Broadmoor meetings at 7 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month. We meet at the clubhouse.

4. Show up for volunteer activities. We have plenty. Pool and park work days are some examples.

5. Participate in UALR's University District effort. See the links on our Web page.

6. Do you part to keep the neighborhood clean and nice.
