At last month’s meeting, Hillcrest Town Council attendees were asked to address their visions for Hillcrest. Several concerns were common in the responses: community beautification, homelessness, safety/mobility, and the right mix of residential and commercial interests. Additionally, individuals also were concerned about energy and water conservation, the role of seniors in Hillcrest, and closer communications with elected officials.
In response to these ideas, the Aug. 8 meeting of the Hillcrest Town Council focused on beautification. Future meetings will address the remaining topics, beginning next month with homelessness.
