IPNA Tax Reform Committee Proposals

Proposed Homestead Exemptions from School Taxes--Plan A

Retain present Homestead exemption from school taxes (enacted in 2018 and in effect until 2021). Exempts $50,000 of assessed value above the first $10,000.  Everyone pays school taxes on the first $10,000 in valuation; school taxes are exempted up to assessed values of $60,000; beyond that valuation, there are presently no additional exemptions.

Krog Tunnel Closure

The Krog Street tunnel will be partially closed/closed for filming on Jan 8,9&10.  See notice below for specifics on times and the type of closure. While this affects our neighbors to the south more than Inman Park, we want everyone to be safe!

 

2020 Print Membership Directory

IPNA will be printing new membership directories early next year.  If you want to be in the new directory, please go to inmanpark.org, login to check your profile and make sure all your information is correct. If you have a spouse/partner/significant other, make sure they are also a member of IPNA so they can be cross-referenced in the directory. If you have a s/p/so listed under your profile but they have not joined individually, they cannot be cross-referenced. IPNA membership is by individual, not household, while security patrol membership is by household.

We encourage everyone to check out their profile and make any corrections. This makes the job of printing the directory much easier on the individuals who are facilitating this process. Also, ask your friends and neighbors to join. The more, the merrier!

Thank you in advance for your cooperation,

Dear Inman Park Residents:

Our company will be permitting various portions of the neighborhood streets for production support, and for parking period appropriate vehicles for the actual filming sequences. Most of the scenes will take place inside the residence. However, we do have one exterior day sequence. We will be requesting to permit the following:

Letter from Kevin Curry, VP Public Safety

A request by Kevin Curry, VP of Public Safety to spend IPNA funds for new patrol car.

A few weeks ago, our old but trusty Inman Park patrol car, the 2007 Ford Crown Vic gave up the ghost and blew a head gasket. It was not worth another repair bill to bring it back to life, so we must replace the car as soon as possible. The patrol is now being performed in the APD officer's private vehicles.

I have asked another neighborhood association patrol, namely Midtown Blue, and several APD officer's for advice on the types and models of recommended patrol vehicles. Two vehicles seem to come up regularly and they are the Ford Explorer (an SUV) and the Toyota Tacoma (an extended cab pickup). Everyone I spoke to seems to think the idea of a taller vehicle offers three distinct advantages; riding higher in the seat so that the patrol officer has better visibility, easier access in and out of the vehicle and lastly more visibility as the officers drive through the neighborhood. Also, they seem to be longer lasting vehicles given the constant on-the-road demand they are subjected to.

Homelessness and drug abuse in Little 5 Points and nearby areas

All are invited to a free screening of "Seattle is Dying" at 7 Stages, 1105 Euclid Avenue in Little Five Points, 7:30 pm, Tuesday, August 20.  

First broadcast in March 2019, this one-hour documentary explores the issues of drug addiction, mental illness, homelessness, and failed public policies in Seattle. It concludes with a look at innovative treatment solutions being pioneered in Rhode Island and a call to action. Its message speaks to some of the challenges facing the Little Five Points business district and also affecting parts of Poncey-Highland, Inman Park, Reynoldstown, Edgewood, and Candler Park.

Eric Johnson of KOMO News, the program's writer, producer, and narrator writes, "This program... asks the question, 'Why aren't we doing more? Why don't we have the courage to intervene in lives that are, in the face of grave sickness, reeling out of control?' It's called 'Seattle is Dying,' and I believe the title to be true. But it's not a hopeless program. There are ideas and concepts in the show that could start conversations about change."
