THANK YOU FOR JANUARY A great meeting with great feedback
Despite technical difficulties, the January meeting was full of excellent feedback. In 2021, we have resolved to try to more regularly send out meeting minutes for those who were unable to join.
PLANNING IS UNDERWAY, BUT WE NEED YOU Which Working Group is the best fit for your skills?
The Neighborhood Plan is being overseen by the Steering Committee. But the work is vast, and although one should not eat an elephant because they are endangered, if you were to eat an elephant, you would need to do it one bite at a time. So think of the Plan as the elephant, the Steering Committe as the eater, and the Working Groups as the bites.
Working groups will write the bulk of the Neighborhood Plan by writing goals and strategies that will be reviewed by the wider community. We anticipate about one working group meeting a month until August of this year. For the time being, we will meet virtually on Google Meet. Check out the following opportunities, and reach out to the Working Group Lead if you are interested!
If you are interested in providing insight without committing to full participation, reach out the Lead so they can keep you in the loop as meetings and plans progress—the Communications Working Group has already held their first Session. So don't miss out on all the fun!
Not sure which Quadrant you're in? Want to participate in a Working Group that does not have a Lead yet? Contact Mary Ray.
STRUGGLING WITH GOOGLE MEET? You are not alone!
Join a casual, open meeting to explore Google Meet and find where all those pesky buttons are: Chat, Polls, Mute, Share Screen, etc.
Community Council Meetings intend to stay virtual for at least another six months, so we may as well get better at this. Kate Elliott and Jeffry Weidner will be working together to resolve a few technical challenges on KHCC's end, and anyone is welcome to stop by and discuss any challenges they have been facing.
SHOW ME THE MONEY! Several exciting grant opportunities
