Our first meeting of 2013 drew 12 people.
With Julian Wetherill, treasurer of CSANA, presiding, the following new officers were elected:
Sara Mitchell, President
Lloyd Fillion, Vice-President
Sandra Alvarado, Treasurer
Carol Blair, Secretary
Other CSANA members present: George Araneo, Anthony Liburdi, Rudy Mitchell, Jim O’Donnell and Michael Pope.
The group had many suggestions for increasing participation, improving communications, and addressing a variety of neighborhood concerns.
It was agreed that the officers should meet before our next meeting to explore the possibilities and bring recommendations to the February meeting for short and long-term goals.
At the end of the hour, we heard from Bill Singleton and Ricardo Pierre-Louis, who came (unannounced) to request support for a new valet business hoping to use parking spaces at the Hurley School. The meeting declined to take a position at the moment, but asked to be kept informed.
For future reference, we’d like advance information on any action items. The agenda should be posted a week in advance of the meeting to inform our members so that interested parties can contribute to the forum.
