Neighborhood picnic to discuss X.U. students’ behavior

On September 29, we published Russell Johnson’s open letter asking other Norwood residents to contact him if they wanted to find solutions to the behavior problems of Xavier students living in our midst. Russell received enough response to go ahead and organize a neighborhood picnic this coming Sunday to discuss the issue. All concerned residents are invited to attend:

Fellow Norwood Residents -

Thank you for your interest in helping to improve our Norwood neighborhood. I am happy to announce our first meeting to discuss the behavior of Xavier students in our neighborhood and how to improve the situation. The meeting will be held on Sunday, October 19th at 6pm and located at 3904 Regent Ave. Attending this meeting will be:

Dr. Luther Smith, Xavier Dean of Students
Steve Thornbury, Norwood Ward 2 Representative
Angie Kneflin, Assistant Director for Apartments and Off-Campus Living
Concerned Norwood residents

The purpose of the meeting is to allow people to share their experiences, to get information from Xavier and Norwood representatives as to what policies are currently in place and how they apply to our situation, and finally to brainstorm and discuss ideas for how we can make things better. Food will be provided, so we please request that you RSVP at least 24 hours in advance so we can ensure we have enough for everyone. Children are welcome and we have plenty of toys for 2-5 year olds. Any older children may want to bring some toys with them. Thanks again for your interest and we hope to see you on the 19th!

Russ Johnson and Amy Schardein
