Burglaries in the Area!

Dear Resident(s),

We are contacting you to inform you of a recent spate of burglaries in the Carpenterstown/Riverwood & Luttrelstown areas in the past weeks/month.  

At the beginning of March, the Riverwood resident's  association forwarded on an email in which they indicated they had four burglaries in the one night. 

Then on the night of 16th/17th March, two houses were broken into in Sycamore & Maple.    And again on the 23rd, two more houses were burgled.   

The Gardaí are aware of all the incidents and are actively investigating these crimes, with some definite leads into a number of groups.

1. Minutes
The minutes of the previous meeting were adapted.

2. Matters Arising
• Regarding traffic issues it was noted that Riverwood Residents Association have requested also a reduction in the speed limit from 50kph to 30kph. Francis advised that by law the limit in proximity of schools is 30kph thus the submissions relate to distributor and link roads.
• Eileen advised on a traffic survey having been conducted on Sycamore Avenue. Sean agreed to follow up with Cllr Roderic O’ Gorman to find out if the survey committed to by the county council was carried out.
• The Christmas trees left on the green were all removed and it as suggested advising the council to put the signs up earlier next Christmas.
• Damien O’ Brien is willing to update our website and he will liaise with Ather Bokari on this.
• Following the last meeting some discussion took place about adding service provider information on our website. Many views were expressed and the decision reached was to not have the website used for this purpose. However, due to the number of break ins in the area it was suggested that this information be uploaded for the benefit of residents

3. Treasurer’s Report
No change. The bank balance currently is €2,865.02.

4. AOB
Margaret reported that a street light on Maple Drive was broken and asked if anybody knew who has responsibility of fixing it. Francis advised that each street light lamppost has an ID and it’s likely that the county council or the electricity provider bears responsibility for repairs and maintenance. Sean offered to contact Dabney about this.
The roundabout at Maple Drive has become overgrown with weeds. The planting of the grasses which was done some time ago was not completed properly and hence the proliferation of weeds since. Dympna agreed to follow up with Ruairi O’ Dualing. Francis complimented the Association on the bulb planting and suggested wild flowers be sown along the railway line on Sycamore Green. The county council could be approached to carry out this work.
The date for the Spring Clean Up Day was provisionally agreed to be April 25th.

The next meeting will be on Monday March 02, 2015 at 8.00 pm
