RGNA Board Update

posted Mar 2, 2013, 8:01 PM by Corry Addison

Hi Everyone,

It’s been a while since there’s been an update from the Association Board.  On behalf of the new board, I’d like to thank you all for your patience.  It’s been a trying situation getting everything back on track, but we’ve been working hard and have some great progress to share with you.

We’ve revised the old RGNA bylaws, and will be holding a neighborhood meeting to share the changes with you.  We’re going to make the updated bylaws available on RGNA.org so that you’ll all have time to review them before the meeting.

Many members of the Association have expressed concern about the general awareness level regarding the Association amongst neighborhood residents.  To this end, we’ve developed an awareness mailer that you’ll be seeing in the next couple weeks.  The point of the mailer is to simply remind people of the Association, encourage all our neighbors to look out for each other, and recruit volunteers for the neighborhood events.

RGNA often holds many events through the year.  One of the most popular of these is the Neighborhood Yard Sale.  I’m happy to report that, barring some unforeseen catastrophe, the yard sale will be happening.  Look for advertising in the coming weeks, both in print and online.  We’re hoping to make this yard sale the best one yet.

We have been in contact with SJPD regarding our current uptick in crime.  We’ve made contact with our local Crime Prevention Officer, and will be planning a neighborhood meeting to get our Neighborhood Watch program back on track.  In the meantime, remember that SJPD can be contacted for non-emergency situations (suspicious vehicles, persons and activities) at 408-277-8900, and for emergency situations (crimes in progress) at 408-277-8911.  When calling from a cell phone, 911 calls often go to CHP, delaying response.  Using the SJPD emergency number is recommended.

We’re planning to have more to report back to everyone over the next few weeks, but other items on our radar include a membership drive, National Night Out Ice Cream Social, and resuming publication of the newsletter.  As with all our events, the limiting factor is volunteer participation.  The more people we have offering help, the more events we can hold.

I’m looking forward to hearing your feedback regarding these, and other neighborhood concerns.
