January 2015 message and meeting info

The president’s message:

Dear Neighbors,

Our January meeting will be held on Tuesday January 20th at 7:00PM at the Wellness Center instead of January 26th. PLEASE NOTE THIS CHANGE. We are making this change in order to hold a hearing on the Collins Property Development proposal on Newport Ave. A few of us have met with Mr. Collins and his staff several times over the holidays trying to come to a reasonable agreement on his development proposal prior to his Planning Commission hearing on January 22nd. Mr. Collins will make a presentation regarding his proposal and there will be several art renderings of this development complex for us to view. There will be time for questions and answers at the end of that presentation. This will be a joint meeting with the Talbot Park Civic League. At the close of this meeting we will ask for a vote on whether we as a civic league are supportive or not of this proposal. Following that meeting I will send a letter to the Planning Commission of our decision of support or not support of this proposal. This is a very important meeting and we would like to have a good turnout. We will have to live with this complex for many years so we want to make sure we get the best Development mix for our neighborhood as possible. Please join us.

As the New Year begins we will be once again provide you with speakers on timely and relevant issues at our civic league meetings. We also want you to attend and bring your issues and concerns to us so that we may help address and/or rectify those issues and problems. You may keep track of the civic league happenings in our monthly newsletter but your presence at the meetings is greatly appreciated. Please consider attending. Please also visit us at http://www.wardscorner.com or http://www.wardscornernow.com

Finally please note that our meeting date for February has changed due to the holiday on our regular meeting day. The February meeting will be the 23rd at 645PM. The meeting will be at the Wellness Center. At that meeting we hope to have the Principal of Granby Elementary as our speaker. We also will have our annual election of officers. I hope you can attend.

Thanks for allowing us to continue to serve you as officers of the Wards Corner Civic League.

Happy New Year to all and best wishes for a prosperous and healthy year.

Sincerely,
