Today’s news:

The Windsor Terrace Alliance (WTA) will be hosting its next general meeting at 6:30 p.m., September 9 at 216 Prospect Park West. Wine and cheese will be served, courtesy of Windsor Wines.

Topics on the agenda include preserving neighborhood buildings, updates on traffic concerns on McDonald Avenue and other streets, planning a neighborhood planting project, the upcoming newsletter, and information on a change for residents with TVs that still rely on “rabbit ears” or rooftop antennas.

All members of the community are invited to attend and share their concerns about the agenda issues as well as raise any additional concerns relating to Windsor Terrace.

The WTA has been lucky to partner with local businesses and organizations. This meeting is being hosted by Windsor Wines, which will soon be moving to this new location from its current address on Windsor Place. During the summer, the soon-to-be wine shop was used as a set for an upcoming film for which the exterior was transformed into a Tapas bar.

In the meanwhile, Windsor Wines’ owner John Lenartz had the shop’s vintage stained glass “Candy, Soda, Ice Cream” panels restored and replaced above the front windows. Since this meeting is in an unfurnished space, the group needed chairs and nearby Church of the Holy Name stepped in to supply seating.

Also, local business owner Cynthia King of Cynthia King Dance Studio sponsored the WTA’s new phone line. In the past, the WTA was only accessible via the internet but now residents without internet access can contact the group or call in for updates on events in the neighborhood.

The Windsor Terrace Alliance is comprised of residents, community groups and businesses of Windsor Terrace interested in advocating for the neighborhood on issues such as expanded education and child care, traffic safety and parking, appropriate residential development, environmental education, and neighborhood beautification.

There are no membership fees and residents’ involvement is always welcome.

For more on what is going on in the neighborhood or to contact the WTA, email or call 718-393-8119.
