Citizens on Patrol (COP) Walk
The Fells Prospect's citizens on patrol (COP) walk will be on Tues., August 4th in conjunction with National Night Out. Talk one-on-one with law enforcement and often a state's attorney office representative will join, too. We'll meet on the corner of S. Chester and Pratt Street just before 7:30 pm.
Meet your neighbors and get to know your SE district officers.
Have ideas about how to get more people to participate? Are there locations that you want to point out to the police? Contact COP organizer, Scott Goldman to get involved: FellsprospectCOP@gmail.com

Monthly FPCA meetings
Meetings are always held on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, except for August and December. They are a great chance to meet your neighbors, find out what's going on with traffic, building, nuisance bars, etc., as well as provide a chance to learn about new topics.Throughout the election cycle, candidates from all office levels came to speak, allowing residents to voice their concerns and meet the potential representatives in person. So come to the next meeting--it's an easy way to get involved.
