NBHC needs your input on meeting days

The North Beacon Hill Council is considering changing the day the group meets each month. To ensure maximum involvement from members of the community at Council meetings, they have created an opinion survey to find the best possible meeting day. The survey will be open for public response through the middle of July. Please fill out the survey if you have any interest in attending Council meetings.

Currently, the Council holds its public meetings on the the first Thursday of the month. However, due to some room availability conflicts this fall at the Library, they are considering a change. Another factor involved is that there have been requests from some board members and neighbors that the meeting be moved so that it does not conflict with the monthly “Art Walk” in Pioneer Square.

North Beacon Hill Council meetings are open to the public and feature official speakers from the City on issues such as land use, public safety and parks. Additionally, there are regular reports from the many subcommittees and other community organizations such as Beacon Bikes, the Merchants’ Association, and El Centro de la Raza. Beacon Hill neighbors and business owners are encouraged and welcome to attend all meetings, and voting membership is granted after attending two meetings.

  1. Am I the only person in the world who thinks these meetings should be held on weekend afternoons and not on weeknights? Seems like it…

  2. What would you rather do on a weekend — talk about neighborhood issues (which, while important, aren’t always terribly exciting) or go out and have weekend fun? :)

  3. Well, I’d probably rather have weekend fun. But the reality for me is that on weeknights I’m often just getting home from work at 6:30 or 7:00 and we have a kid to get fed and to sleep at a reasonable hour, etc., etc. None of the suggested times on the survey really work well with that kind of schedule. I’m sure weeknights work great for other people with jobs and kids, but I don’t know how.
