See? I told you activity would pick up after the holidays. Especially a lot of meetings this week.
Saturday, 8-11 pm, August Moon features The Lynn Riley Quintet with vocalist Denise King, Emcee Rich Rogers. Doors open at 7:30. Entertainment Fee: $10, 2 Drink Minimum. For info, go to Crying Sam Entertainment, www.cryingsam.com
Tuesday, 6 pm, North End Town Watch Meeting at Montgomery Hose Fire Co, West Freedley and Pine Sts. All residents are welcome to attend.
Tuesday from 6-7:30 pm, Greater Norristown Police Athletic League
(Harding Blvd) will host a Community Board Meeting in their board room
to talk about the trends in youth behaviors for our community.
The Greater Norristown Law Enforcement Exploring Post 752 will be hosting an Open House on Tuesday, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Montgomery County Public Safety Training Campus, 1175 Conshohocken Road, Conshohocken. The program is open to young men and women ages 14-20, who have an interest in a future in law enforcement. Questions may be directed to CPT Rich Clowser, Norristown Police, at 610-270-0496 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tuesday at 7 pm, Planning Commission Meeting at Municipal Hall. Big item on the agenda is the consideration of the OR Zoning Ordinance Amendment for the new senior housing development at the Montgomery Hospital site. The zoning language was put together by a committee consisting of residents from nearby blocks, the developer, Municipal and County Planning Departments and interested parties (me, for instance). It was the kind of process that should ALWAYS be used in these sorts of large developments being plopped into the middle of established neighborhoods (like 1202 Dekalb was). I hope Norristown will continue to use this model in the future. The other item on the agenda is for 821 Haws Avenue--Norristown Congregation of Jehovah Witnesses Inc. is requesting Minor Land Development approval for the expansion of the parking lot to create approximately 43 spaces.
Wednesday at 1 pm at the Norristown Library, the film “Thoroughly Modern Millie” (one of my favorite movies) will be shown in the Board Room for this week's Senior Film Fest.
Wednesday on the Town Calendar, under Board Hearings, there is merely the notation NMWA and nothing else. I assume that means Norristown Municipal Waste Authority, but have no idea what it's about. I assume it's open to the public or it shouldn't be on the calendar, but there's no time and no agenda. (If the Planning folks above can do such a great job getting their info on the town calendar in a timely manner, why can't anyone else? Or conversely, why can't the person in charge of the calendar, assuming we have one, make sure postings are complete before they go live?)
As always, there are loads of activities at the Norristown Library every day. Check out their calendar.
