December 12, 2019 A Note from Trustee Kathianne Snaden:
As liaison to public safety, I created a public safety task force and our first order of business was to address the issues at the train station uptown, more specifically, those arising in the vicinity of Pax Christi.
Immediate issues that will be addressed are to extend the fencing along the west side of the Pax Christi property as well as the possibility of changing and raising the fencing along the south side that faces the train platform. In addition, we discussed how to have better communication between Pax and our Code Department when people don’t meet the facility’s requirements for an overnight stay and are turned away. We feel that the best way to have a better working relationship with Pax is through education and communication. I am very happy with the progress that we have made thus far and will continue to nurture the positive and cooperative relationship moving forward.
