The L.I.O.N. Award (Let's Improve Our Neighborhood) is given to a person/project/group who contributed significantly to our community. This year we are giving this award to Tim Gahagan for his service as President of the UCPD (Uptown Community Parking District) during its restructuring. He provided outstanding leadership bringing four community groups together to find better parking solutions for Uptown.

Tom Mulaney (Uptown Planners) and Roy Dahl (Hillcrest Parking Committee) will discuss the newly formed Uptown Gateway Council which represents developers in the area of Sixth Ave from Pennsylvania to RT 163. This group is concerned about issues of density and height and want to change the community plan that is in development. Tom and Roy will pass a signup sheet for those interested in a sub-committee to monitor this new council.
