BPNA Monthly Meeting Tues. 6/26

Hi Neighbors,

The monthly meeting of the Bryan Park Neighborhood Association will be this Tuesday, June 26. As usual, we'll meet at 7:00 p.m. at the Free Methodist Church on the corner of Grimes and S. Lincoln.

This month, our main topic will be the proposed changes to our by-laws regarding the structure of our group. BPNA usually holds elections at the June meeting. This year, there has been a proposal to move from our current officer structure and go to a five-member executive committee. A number of Bloomington’s neighborhood associations are going toward this style of governance. 

We will look at the McDoel neighborhood association by-laws with the executive committee (EC) format. We’ll also look at changes proposed to the BPNA by-laws at the May meeting, and talk more about making this change. Please come to this week’s meeting if you’d like to contribute to the discussion.

As I’ve said, I am retiring as president. Jon Lawrence has volunteered to take over the email list. He'll send out more information on that as we make the transition. 

It's been a real privilege to get to know so many of you, and to work together on making our great neighborhood even better.

Stray dog on Davis

A reddish dog with tags was sighted on Davis street near Lincoln at approximately 6:30 pm Wednesday. I was unable to catch him before he ran away. His/her photo is attached. He was obviously afraid and barking at various people who got near him.
