David Vogel announced he would lead an effort to get the Community Council going again. The first organization meeting was held earlier this week, on Monday, Jan 20 at McMurray Middle School. There were between 20 and 30 attendees, some of whom are on this e-mail list, but not all. I was one of the attendees, and volunteered to get the word out about the next meeting once a date time, and location had been established.
It is important that we get the widest possible representation at these early formative meetings, because the decisions made at these first meetings will determine how this group will run, who gets to vote, who will be on the board, and more.
Please help spread the word about the next meeting through your organization, company, and personal networks:
Date: Monday, February 17
Time: 7-9 pm
Place: Land Trust Building, 10014 SW Bank Rd
It was mentioned at the first meeting that we especially would like to see young people get involved, and though the last time we had a Community Council voting was restricted to those 18+, that age limit could certainly be lowered, if the community wishes to do so. So please encourage young people to attend.
