Ever wonder how great things happen in our neighborhood?
Yes, we mean the community garden, public art, Movies in the Park, National Night Out —and no, the list doesn’t end there! Your Foster-Powell Neighborhood Association has been hard at work ensuring that our neighborhood is thriving.
On our upcoming election night we want to celebrate living, loving, working and battling alongside one another! We’d love the opportunity to share with you and tell you about our past accomplishments, our hopes for the future of our neighborhood and ultimately extend an invitation to you to get involved in big or small ways.
Help us as a neighbor* by joining us on Monday, May 9th and voting in our new leadership. Even if you haven’t been to a meeting before we feel that it is important to involve as many neighbors as possible in the selection of our board members.
Not only will you play an important role in our elections, you’ll also be privy to insider information; getting the scoop on what’s happening in the neighborhood and across the city.
Interested in getting your hands dirty and being a part of the month-to-month decision making? Then board or committee service might be for you. Feel free to join in the conversation and ask questions of current board members. Or, if you’re ready to get to work, step on up and offer to fill one of our vacant seats—we’d love to have you on board!
The following positions are open for voting:
- Southeast Uplift Land Use and Transportation Delegate
- Land Use Chair
- Transportation Chair
- Communications Delegate at Large
- Five (5) Delegates at Large (may act as alternates for the above positions in the instance an officer cannot attend at specific meeting)
- One (1) Special Delegate at Large Neighborhood Liaison
If you have ever spent time volunteering, you know that it takes all kinds of hard working and dedicated people to make things happen. Projects don’t complete themselves, issues don’t advocate for themselves, art doesn’t magically appear — people are the driving force. The same is true for our neighborhood, only in this case neighbors must be the driving force!
