Jan Sorby calls for BPNA election

The election for officers is quickly approaching...

This year was the last year that I can be your president according to our by-laws. Working on behalf of the neighborhood has been a wonderful experience and I sincerely hope someone will keep our voice strong. Community building and having a say on how your neighborhood develops in critical to our quality of life for yourself, family and neighbors. Below are a few reasons to consider becoming involved.

• You can help establish better communication with your neighbors. Too often, people do not even know their neighbors. BPNA gives everyone something in common. Merely getting people introduced to their neighbors will affect improvements in untold ways.

• You can help work more effectively with municipal services. In the same way that the residents benefit by working together, BPNA provides a larger forum for communicating with city government to voice concerns and solve problems.

• You can create pride in your neighborhood. Creating pride is something so basic, yet so important. Neighborhoods can easily fall into disrepair and despair. However, when people care, you will be able to maintain and improve that place that you call home.

• You can help make your neighborhood a safer place. By working together, looking out for each other, and coordinating with your police officers, neighbors can help to create a safer, more secure environment in which to live.

Jan Sorby
President, BPNA
