Spring Blast 2017

(BoilerBlast has a new Name)

Here is the press release from Michaella Jones, Director of Community Partnerships, Boilers In Action:

I am excited to announce that this year’s Spring Blast Resident Registration link is officially live! Spring Blast has been previously known as Boiler Blast and Springification, but the day is all the same.

Spring Blast is a day of service dedicated to serving our neighbors. Our goal is to connect Purdue students and residents in making a more united community. Spring Blast was established in order to make that possible.

As a previous participant we would like to extend the offer to participate again! This year (2017) Spring Blast will be on Saturday, April 1st. To register, follow the link at the end of this email, fill out the form, and you will be all set!

We will be contacting you about 2 weeks before the event on April 1st with more information. Please be honest about your needs so that we can match you accordingly. If you have any questions, feel free to contact jones973@purde.edu. Thank you for your participation!

More Gas Line Updates are coming May 2017: Meridian, N. Chauncey, Grant, Lawn, Oak, & Vine

We Need Your Help!

The nightmare isn’t over. Starting May 30th of this year, Miller Pipeline will begin replacing the gas lines along Meridian, N. Chauncey, Grant, Lawn, Oak, & Vine.

The project ID for this round is N-676. A number we will need to reference in the future while talking with Vectren to make sure this doesn’t happen again:

The New Chauncey Neighborhood Association has contacted the City of West Lafayette Engineering, Development, Mayor,and City Council offices to setup a meeting with Vectren. If you would like to be involved in the meeting, organizing around this effort (including existing repair issues from previous gas line updates elsewhere in the neighborhood), please contact us over Twitter, Facebook, Nextdoor, e-mail.

This time around, we are asking residents to photograph their existing lawns, sidewalks, curb strips (land between street and sidewalk), trees, etc. This will allow us an accurate reference to ensure Vectren returns the area to its original state.

Spread the word! Stay vigilant! Say hello to your neighbors!
