Fall letter from the Co-Chairs

By Allan Rudwick and Jimmy Wilson

The Eliot Neighborhood Association board has been working via Zoom for two years due to the pandemic. The existing board has been serving for two years and has been working hard.

We signed on to a lawsuit against the Oregon Department of Transportation over a proposed highway widening in our neighborhood. We have also been working to improve air quality from the large number of diesel trucks that drive through our community. We continue to be a forum for a number of community livability concerns. We have stepped up to host the Dawson Park Concerts, and we could use your help.

The more energetic and engaged citizens that are part of the board, the more we can accomplish. Our meetings are open to the public, and commitment starts at two hours per month. Come check us out.

Calling All Eliot Residents! Eliot Neighborhood Association General Assembly Meeting and Election of New Board of Directors – Monday, October 18 at 7:00 via Zoom

Join us via Zoom for the annual general assembly meeting of the Eliot Neighborhood Association. You can find the agenda and ZOOM link HERE.

We will have a recap of events from the last year by our Co-Chairs and a financial report by the Treasurer. We may also discuss the issues of the neighborhood, hear from you on potential events or activities for next year, but look forward to meeting you and welcome your talents and time.

At this meeting we elect the directors of the board. We can have up to 20 directors on the board so don’t be shy and consider adding your name to the slate for the election. You can nominate yourself or someone else in attendance could nominate you.

Meetings are held monthly at least 10 months of the year and board directors are expected to attend at least 2/3 of the meetings.

Our bylaws state the following as who is defined as eligible to be elected to the board:

Section 1: Eligibility for Membership. Membership in the association is extended to all residents over 14 years of age who reside within the boundaries as defined in Article I, Section 3 who consent to be members. Additionally, a single authorized representative of any property owners, licensed business, or legally recognized non- or not-for profit entity with a physical location within the boundaries as defined in Article I, Section 3 can be a member of the ENA.

We are looking for directors but also need volunteers to sit on committees like our livability committee and could use a webmaster too.

We are also looking for a new Editor for the Eliot News and some team members that can help with all the different parts of publishing a newspaper such as advertising, invoicing and layout. The Editor is a board of directors position.

See you there!
