Neighborhood Block Parties Needed for National Night Out – Register Now

Posted on: July 5th, 2022 No Comments

 

The Piqua Police Department, in cooperation with the PROTECT Piqua Board of Trustees, is once again participating in numerous block parties across the city during National Night Out, Tuesday, August 2, 2022, from 6pm to 8pm.

“Community crime prevention starts at the neighborhood level,” according to Piqua Chief of Police Rick Byron, “so we want to use National Night Out to build stronger neighborhoods in every area of the city.”

During this time period, neighbors throughout Piqua and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on your front porch lights, and spend the evening outside with neighbors, law enforcement, and our many community partners, such as the fire department and social service agencies.

Now is the time to begin planning for a successful event in your neighborhood, and we can help with that planning. Registered neighborhoods can expect visits from police and fire. Activities, entertainment, and food make for successful events. PROTECT can provide advice for organizers of local block parties for all of these elements.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. Together, we are making that happen.

Call Officer Chris Walters at 778-2027 (Extension 3027) or Rick Byron at 778-2036 for additional information and to register your block on the list of official National Night Out block parties.

City of Piqua is Seeking Design Alternatives for the Hydraulic Canal System

Posted on: June 24th, 2022 No Comments

 

The City of Piqua is seeking to identify design alternatives for the Hydraulic Canal system, which includes Swift Run Lake, Echo Lake and Franz Pond and the canal that connects them. The residents of Piqua value this system of waterways for a variety of reasons and it is important to engage the community in the process of determining the preferred design alternative.

The project goal is to identify cost-effective design options that satisfy both the applicable regulatory requirements and the public safety, recreation, water quality, and aesthetic values of the community. This system requires modifications to meet the requirements of the dam safety laws of the State of Ohio.

The City of Piqua will ensure public engagement on this project with the formation of a Citizen Advisory Committee, interactions with small focus groups, and two community-wide public engagement forums that will provide opportunities for stakeholders and community members to participate in the process of determining the preferred design alternatives.

Please visit https://piquadamstudy2022.com/ for more information, an opportunity to provide initial comments, and information on upcoming public engagement opportunities.
