Welcome From Our New CMNA President

Happy Labor Day from your new president! Thank you for voting for me! In case you missed the elections; I ran unopposed and was unanimously voted into office. It was a thrilling 2-3 minutes. It was a very long and challenging 30 second campaign trail… but I appreciate all those who participated and helped me along the way.

More importantly, you voted in an outstand- ing board of directors! Your directors are already working very hard to revive your neighborhood association (Yes, your neighborhood association was on life support and rapidly losing the battle. See the President’s letter in the last newsletter). We have been very busy the past few months. You now have a Facebook page and a NextDoor page…and people are using them… often! Just not me. I missed the social media wagon, but my wife keeps me up to date. The newsletter you are reading is under new management and the team is working hard to provide new content.

Also, you are about to have a new website, where you will be able to see upcoming events and get neighborhood information. We are working on creating a “real” email list that you can subscribe to (and unsubscribe if you wish). The board is breathing new life into all aspects of the association and they are doing a GREAT JOB!

In closing, I would like to say thank you to all the neighbors who have been in this neighborhood for decades and who made it what it is today. Decades. There are a lot of neighborhoods where you couldn’t even say that. One of my neighbors has been here since the 50s. That, boys and girls, is what I like to call a stable neighbor. A number of my other neighbors have been here since the 80s! This means two things: 1) I’m biased, but I think I live on the best block, and 2) I’m going to be the “new” neighbor for a long, long time.

I hope all of you have a great start to the fall season and I will see you around!

    After the meeting tonight I drove around and through the parking lot @ 1475 South Colorado Blvd. This is the site of the proposed rezoning directly west of the Holiday gas station. It is not immedeiately clear when driving the property exactly what area of the property is being requested to be rezoned. I hope it is clearer to you when you and George drive the Colorado BLVD corridor and drive the site behind the gas station that now seems to house the motel hotel and its parking lot. Thanks for reading my comment. Bob Zoetewey
