Hear Mount Pleasant working in the Neighborhood

Join us for a celebration!

Haydees Restaurant Thursday May 12th, 2011 7PM til late with live music, dancing and great food!

In March, the city's ABC Board made three landmark decisions, ending restrictions imposed on three local restaurants by a local civic group that impeded their ability to run their businesses and provide amenities their customers wanted to see.

With that fight over, the hard work goes on:

Hear Mount Pleasant will continue our efforts to support: Residents and businesses working together to build a vibrant and livable neighborhood A better more proactive approach to managing quality of life issues that arise in dense mixed use areas New investment and more great new businesses opening their doors in Mount Pleasant More fun cultural and social events at our local restaurants and in Lamont Park

Come celebrate with us and learn about how you can get involved!

Family Night at Don Juan's

Just a reminder that Tuesday, April 26, 2011 is Family Night at Don Juan's Restaurant. We are celebrating the return of live entertainment to our neighborhood by hosting an evening of live, family-oriented music and puppet shows. Relax and enjoy dinner and bring the kids (or your neighbors kids). From 6-8 p.m.. Co-sponsored by The MTP Business Association and MTP Main Street.

Office of Planning Small Area Plan

In addition to ongoing work on the legal front to appeal the decision by the ABRA Board in the Don Juan's Carryout and Restaurant case, Hear Mount Pleasant has been busy working with the Office of Planning on developing their Small Area Plan. There have been several public meetings as well as several Advisory Group Meetings to which we have sent representatives. We try and make our supporters and the general Mt. Pleasant community aware of the Public Meetings and encourage as much engagement as possible.

Here are links to two documents recently released by the Office of Planning that describe the most recent meetings:
Meeting #2 Summary

Meeting #3 (English)

You can stay up to date on the meeting schedule and details at the Office of Planning website. And you can follow along and join in any discussion on the newly established Google Group.

Stay tuned for information on celebrations to be held in April 2011!
