I am a member of a number of neighbourhood email groups and recently one of them has been alive with discussions about what is or isn’t happening in the back patio/parking lot of JJ Bean Coffee Shop at 6th & Commercial, and around the Post Office building across the street. About half the folks posting say there is a problem with aggressive behaviour and, perhaps, drugs, while the other half are saying they don’t see a problem and a laissez-faire rapprochement is the best solution.
This is highly reminiscent of the public meeting we had last month about Victoria Park.
In view of the concerns expressed and the obvious differences of opinion, Community Policing Constable Mike Lemon has organized a meeting to discuss these issues. It will take place at 6:30pm on Wednesday 19th February at the Britannia Learning Centre under the south side of the Library. The City, JJ Bean, and the Post Office have been invited to attend.
All residents are welcome.
