Minutes for Historic Cannon’s Addition
Community Development Steering Committee
Tuesday, October 4, 2005
The meeting was called to order by President, Susan Downes.  There were twelve in attendance.  The minutes of September 6 were read, corrected and approved.

Marilyn Saunders, Director of Spokane C.O.P.S Shops brought  “crime maps” and told us about accessing  the  computer and putting  one’s own report without  waiting on the phone.  She gave us copies of the crime analysis weekly and yearly report. She also brought us up to date on the McGruff House, Block Watch, and asked us to become familiar with the office and Police officers  of our C.O.P.S Shop.  Identity theft, panhandlers, sex offenders, halfway houses and car thefts were discussed, with accompanying flyers.

Rosemary Small reported on the proposed CDNC report.  There will be 2  flyers per year.  Steve Spickard reminded us again we have a Cannon’s Addition web site.
