The RPNA Board met via Zoom on 9/17. key takeaways are as follows:
- CM Harris talked to the Board about why he is opposed to Measure A, the “strong mayor” initiative on the November ballot. The Board voted to take no position on the measure.
- The American River Bank Protection project, previously scheduled to begin this fall to remove almost all the trees and vegetation between the H Street Bridge and the bend in the river, has been delayed and will not begin until at least spring.
- The Board discussed upcoming holidays and ways to help the neighborhood feel festive during a challenging time. For Halloween, the Board is encouraging homeowners to decorate their homes and to follow public health guidelines for any activities. For December holidays, we will likely be holding our annual holiday lights competition; more information to come.
- The Board discussed the proposed bylaw amendments released for public comment in August, decided to remove the amendment to reduce the number of Board members from 11 to 9, and will vote on the remaining amendments during the October meeting.
- As a reminder, we issued a call for candidates for the upcoming Board election in the August RP Review. For those interested, please submit a candidate statement of 150 words or less to firstname.lastname@example.org. Help make RP a great place to live!
Our next board meeting on 10/15 at 730pm via Zoom. All residents are welcome to join, and we will distribute an agenda in advance with instructions for how to join.
