Ongoing Miller Neighborhood HALA related efforts?

The big question, IMHO, is whether anyone is going to lead the HALA related efforts in our neighborhood that many are eager to help with.

I shared this link recently with the core group of people who organized the neighbors' meeting at Holy Names:

It attract some interest and discussion and I further noted:

I am not aware of any ongoing organizing efforts by the Miller neighborhood group after the Holy Names meeting and the City-run meeting at Miller CC.
I fear that the longer people wait, the harder it will be to maintain any momentum/enthusiasm.
