CMBA Meeting Notes

The Cedar Mill Business Association took a break from meeting during August. Members turned out to help make the Cedar Mill Park Concert a big success, with the new Passport contest that awarded prizes to kids and grownups who had collected stamps from Community Partners’ booths. Prizes were provided by Bales Thriftway, Giftique Gift Baskets, Mr. James, Sandy Sahagian Portraiture and the Pet Barn.

The CMBA finally managed to get the county to weed the medians on Cornell, and member Hal Beighley discovered the reason that the planting along Barnes was looking so bad—a family of ants had set up housekeeping in the watering controller mechanism. They were able to install a replacement device and hopefully save the rest of the planting from imminent demise during our hot and dry spell.

Cornell median weeding
A crew of folks doing their court-ordered community service cleared weeds and trimmed the bushes on Cornell.

Going forward, we will be scheduling twice-yearly weeding on the medians with the county providing traffic control. We’ll also continue to weed along the sides of Cornell as we did this year. It’s our contribution to making Cedar Mill a more pleasant place to live and do business. And we’ve been selected to participate in the SOLV Clean & Green event October 11 when we  will finish up the weeding on Barnes.

Our September 9 meeting will feature a program on workplace safety and ergonomics presented by CMBA president Lauren McCabe of Cedar Mill Chiropractic. We’ll meet at the Leedy Grange, and as always free pizza, bring your own beverage.
