Minutes from City Park West monthly meeting 3.18.2020

The 3.18 meeting was held on Zoom, an online meeting platform. For some reason, although the meeting was set up on Zoom to begin at 6, some folks logging in saw a 7 p.m. start time, so you might have logged on and been confused. We’ll try this again soon, get it to work for everyone, and may host more frequent meetings. In virtual attendance: Jo Untiedt, Janna Goodwin, Alyssa Knutson, Scott Holder, Brendan Cady In summary: While we’re still trying to paper the neighborhood with flyers about the East Central Area Plan, the timing is obviously bad now for neighbors to focus on non-urgent issues. Most of our meeting, we discussed how City Park West RNO might best help our local community in this global crisis. While Nextdoor provides community information and resources, we are concerned about shut-ins– e.g. the elderly and disabled– who are not tech-savvy. Those who may not know how to use social media, or who might have an ipad but not realize its full power (or know how to download health, safety, communication or even entertainment apps to help get through these trying times). We will post helpful links whenever we are made aware of them, and will also listen to those involved in coordinating volunteer efforts to learn how the City Park West RNO can be of service.

New member invitation!

We need you! While our Facebook group indeed currently provides the service of facilitating communication among more than 1,700 neighbors, you might be surprised to learn that City Park West Neighborhood Association Facebook group participants are not de facto automatic members of the RNO! Our board hopes to grow formal CPWNA Association Membership by 1000% in 2020, thereby expanding our reach, our neighborhood voice and our effectiveness. Individuals, households and businesses all within the boundaries of City Park West are eligible for membership. Individual/household members signal their engagement in the neighborhood and enjoy great, new relationships and local networking capacity (and the occasional perk at a local shop, restaurant or pub). Individuals/households can join for a nominal $15. annual fee which allows us to produce and publicize neighborhood community-building and informative events, and to undertake fundraising for special projects. Those who cannot afford a paid membership may opt to join for free. Business Members ($25. annual fee) support the neighborhood, make themselves visible as interdependent upon local neighbors, and may post up to one special event or promotion a month on the CPWNA Facebook page. Business owners in CPWNA are also eligible for board membership. Members receive newsletters and e-mail notification of neighborhood events, initiatives and impacts; are eligible for board leadership, and may propose, chair or participate in special-interest committees ranging from historic preservation to homelessness; from transportation to the arts.
