I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season and celebrated the new year beginning cheerfully. We have been extremely busy working on behalf of the Association, and I would like to use this letter to update everyone on our activity.
First, we have planned a fundraiser for the Association that started the beginning of this month. More specific details are included in this newsletter. Historically, our neighborhood has many fun events, and we have new ones planned for this year. However in the past, individual, motivated members bore the expense of some of these events. We would like to relieve this responsibility and make our association fully, independently funded. Please take the time to review the fundraiser and participate!
Secondly, the committee responsible for the Elizabeth Avenue traffic circles is continuing to work with the City of Fort Worth to resolve the issues with the traffic circles. Following multiple meetings in January, the City agreed to follow the Association’s requests regarding drainage. Therefore, work should start soon on implementing our requests. This is a great victory for our neighborhood. Our city councilwoman, Ann Zadeh, has been very attentive and helpful throughout this process and deserves recognition for helping to resolve these issues with the City.
Next, we have a general membership meeting planned for the end of March. This is a new event for our neighborhood. It will include home-cooked food, interesting speakers, and great neighborhood conversation. Please mark it on your calendar and plan to attend. More information will be forthcoming.
Finally, we have positions open on committees within the Association’s board. We need people with skills in marketing, webpage management, sales, and event planning. If you have one of these skills, or if you would like to donate some of your time in another manner to help the neighborhood, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to seeing you all in March!
Cade Lovelace, RPIA President
