Public Safety is working with USPS and Amazon to try and streamline and fix delivery issues.
There have been some residents asking for security cameras to be installed, however this is an issue that is deliberated by the Security Advisory Board at the University
Chris Warkala will ask if it is feasible to install security cameras and if so how long it will take for the board to make a decision.
The smoking outposts are supposed to be 25 feet away from the building entrances, however some students are moving them so facilities will take charge of making sure they are being moved away from buildings. However residents are urged to NOT move these outposts back closer to the buildings since it affects residents. Thank you.
There will be No Smoking signs placed around Building 1 for now
Wooden benches/picnic tables
Residents have complained that since they have been power washed they have had a lot of splinters so facilities will be sanding/painting them.
Stop sign in Lawrence Parking lot:
Greenery has overgrown making the sign hard to see, so facilities will be placing a sign 15 feet ahead of stop sign to state that there is a stop ahead.
Golf balls issue around playground:
University is looking into the possibility of adding a playground in another spot around the Lawrence Apartment Complex.
Does not seem likely there is much that the golf course will do at this point as they have already replaced the netting around the driving range. He is investigating this, but it seems like a long shot.
Transportation Advisory Meeting Update:
Stop light timing at Alexander/Lawrence
Transportation is aware that the cycle is often very long for cars and buses waiting to turn onto Alexander Road
Enterprise Rental Car Signs in the parking lot:
There has been an issue of residents parking in these designated spots so the University is moving the signs down so that they will be more visible for residents.

University is in communication with Amazon in regards to recent delivery issues that seem to stem from their use of another delivery company.
Recommend that if a package is missing to please contact Public Safety to let them know and also contact your shipper.
Some delivery companies can hold packages/mail until you are able to pick them up so this is an option if you are waiting on a valuable delivery.
For Amazon deliveries, there is an option to send your packages to an Amazon locker and pick it up at your convenience. Please go to the Amazon website for more information.
Lawrence Committee and the University will continue to monitor and work on problems with package delivery at Lawrence.
At least for the time being, Lawrence Committee is going to stop making posts about mis-delivered packages to the website due to the large number of posts that are overwhelming the other website content and no evidence so far that it has helped recover any packages.
We will be removing posts about missing packages that are over 3 weeks old.
Formalized trick or treating for kids
We will be sending an email asking residents who wish to participate to register their apartment so families with kids can go trick or treating around Lawrence and know which units are open to trick or treat-ers.
There will be a time limit set in place (I.e. 6-7pm)
We will also have fliers available with a Halloween symbol on them that residents can put up on their doors if they have candy for trick or treat-ers.
Screening of an episode of Stranger Things on October 27th
There will Halloween themed treats, drinks, etc.
Email to follow with more details
Issue was raised about receiving new moving and grocery carts for Lawrence apartments as many are old/in disrepair. Residents requested smaller shopping carts and hand carts.
Housing will look into this and let us know.
It is possible to open up the computer cluster with your main door key for Lawrence Apartments.
