STAG PARK UNDER THE MICROSCOPE
The residents of Stag Park, Mitchelstown have been invited to a meeting by Cork County Council to discuss community, social and security issues.
There will also be a vote to elect a residents’ association committee as the outgoing chairman, Timmy ‘Rancher’ White, has resigned due to his candidature in the forthcoming local election.
A neighbourhood watch system, which has been in operation at Stag Park for a number of weeks, has not been welcomed by all of the people living in the housing estate.
One resident who did not want to be named told The Avondhu, “I think the people running the neighbourhood watch have taken things a bit far and are causing some negative reaction with some of the residents.”
There have been reports of antisocial behaviour and vandalism in the area over the past months.
A spokesperson for Cork County Council said, “There will be representatives from the council, local councillors and local gardai at the meeting on Monday, March 30. We would encourage all residents to attend so that we can hear what concerns them and so that they can elect a residents’ committee.”
The Stag Park Residents’ Association has also announced that they are to hold a family day in Stag Park on Friday April 10 (Good Friday) between 4 and 8pm. There will be a vintage car and tractor display, face painting, a bouncy castle and a bric-a-brac stall.
Refreshments will also be served. All proceeds from the day will go towards the new community centre and the playground..
