By popular demand, the Parkside Community Association has once again made signs available for block clubs to post that publicize the Halloween Trick-or-Treating cut off policy agreed upon by the vast majority of residents for Halloween night. Since the institution of the cut off policy, incidents of mischief and vandalism have been all but been eliminated. Here's a summary of what has been agreed upon by your Parkside neighbors.
- Halloween is for children in costumes. To minimize the security risk that occur when older kids go door to door until late at night, a cut off time of 8:00 pm has been established for trick-or-treating
- Don't turn off your lights and pretend you're not at home. This is an open invitation to vandalism and mischief. Instead keep your house well lit and post signs that you are out of candy.
- Several adults have volunteered to patrol the neighbor with flashlights in "strolling neighborhood watch teams" while others have agreed to sit outside on their porches. Remember that the sole purpose of a strong adult presence is to serve as a deterrent to potential mischief, not to threaten or antagonize anyone. As always, any suspicious activity should be called in to 911.
- A positive publicity campaign is the key to a safe, fun Halloween for us all. We have make available three diffefrent signs.Please post to appropriate one on your porch or door on Halloween.
