    Leaf Pickup through December 31 

    Leaf pickup will occur in conjunction with regularly scheduled street cleaning days in Southampton.  The Southampton schedule is over two days--last Monday and last Tuesday in November and December.  Mark your calendars for November 26 and 27 and December 31.  (Will be updated when we uncover how December 25 (last Tuesday) will be handled.)

    Here are a few helpful reminders for Southampton residents from our Ward 16 Alderman, Tom Oldenburg.

    • if your neighborhood does not have street cleaning signs posted, you can find your street’s cleaning schedule online
    • the City will pick up leaves that have fallen from City trees if they are piled in the street approximately 1.5 feet from the curb
    • tree limbs, cardboard boxes, plastic bags, etc. must be removed from any leaves that are left for curbside pickup
    • other leaves from your yard should be placed in your alley’s yard waste dumpsters
    • if your yard waste dumpster is full, place leaves in paper yard waste bags and schedule them for pickup from the “tree yard” in front of your home (between the sidewalk and the street); you must call the Citizen’s Service Bureau at 314-622-4800 to request bagged leaf pickup
    • residents should mulch leaves with a lawn mower or mulcher before disposal to maximize the capacity of dumpsters and lawn bags

    Loving this new business and SNA member.  Espresso Yourself, in recognition that November is National Homeless Awareness Month, is taking up a collection of coats, mitten/gloves, scarves, hats and socks to donate to St. Patrick's Center.  And that's not all! For every coat donation, these business owners will donate a $1.00.

    Drop them off at Espresso Yourself, 5531 Devonshire right here in SOHA. There's a box for donations and they will even deliver them to St. Patrick's Center. Please share as widely as possible.

    Traffic signage.  All pending reports to the City have been cleared and verified.  The next annual survey will begin in March.  NOTE:  traffic signage refers to Stop, Do Not Enter, One-Way, and the plaques All Way and Cross Traffic Does Not Stop.  

    Dead trees.  All known dead trees have been reported to the City and removal is underway.  NOTE:  Two trees reported dead were not removed but were trimmed.  The next survey will begin in June.

    Alley & Street Lighting.  Almost all lighting issues have been repaired by the City (street) or Ameren (alley). Two issues involving new lights will require additional monitoring.

    Sidewalks.  Annual survey is scheduled to begin in May.

    Property Workshops.  Christy Fry and Donna Agah are attending workshops to prevent vacant properties; to reduce any displacement; and to obtain good data on City properties that are vacant.

    Residents interested in Safety are encouraged to attend the tour of the Real Time Crime Center on Saturday, November 3, beginning at 10 AM (and lasting about an hour) at 1915 Olive (Police HQ). Meter parking available.

    The August safety meeting was well attended by neighborhood activists as we worked on public safety throughout Southampton. The latest crime report for the neighborhood was reviewed.  There was no change in the primary effort to reduce larceny from motor vehicles and of parts.  

    A fund-raising effort to install intersection cameras connected to the Real Time Crime Center at police headquarters (and based on their recommendations) will begin soon.  Two tours of the Real Time Crime Center have been scheduled so neighbors can experience how using these cameras leads to crime prevention and criminal prosecution.  Members can register for both free tours now.  If you're not a member check back as both tours will be opened to non-members.

    Volunteers have surveyed alley lighting and street lighting, reported their findings to Ameren and to CSB, and re-visited to make sure repairs were made. A recommendation from the traffic study was taken on by Safety neighbors and Southampton traffic signage has been surveyed twice throughout the neighborhood; reported to CSB; and re-visited to ensure completion.

    An innovative project suggested by a neighbor will begin a pilot stage in September.  After results are evaluated, full neighborhood implementation is planned.  This project is designed to encourage landlords and tenants to join with the Association and our members in making Southampton stronger and safer--a benefit to all neighbors and property owners.  

    If you have not been to a safety meeting, keep an eye on Events and plan to come. It's a way to meet activist neighbors and to join efforts to improve our community. We exchange ideas and develop neighborhood-wide efforts to help Southampton become stronger and safer. Join us at our October meeting. Watch for the announcement for date and time.

    Carol Howard, Ward 14 alderman, has an interesting bit in her latest 14th Ward News: In 2016 a traffic study was conducted in Southampton. There were a few recommendations for the 14th Ward portion of the neighborhood, specifically at Brannon & Neosho to provide better flow of traffic at the intersection. Ward Capital Funds have been allocated and work is in progress. Thanks, Carol!
