We had the first board meeting of 2011 last night and happy to report, we had a couple of residents attend as guests! Of course all residents are welcome, usually though, it’s just the board members.
David Pucci is our new President, and Tiffany Moore is Vice President. New board members Dan Newman and Mary Caesteker were present. Some of the things we discussed:
*Residents seemed pleased with the first private snow plowing of the year. Our contract with Ray Wynn, KCMO firefighter, is for a plow through Armour Hills when the snow reaches 4″ or more. I actually saw two City vehicles make a run down my block – twice!
*We will investigate getting together with other area homes associations and request a meeting with someone from the KCMO school district regarding the continuing problems at Southwest High School. There is a question of who to call regarding truancy when students leave the campus. Residents have reported students on private property, perhaps ‘casing’ out homes for break-ins.
*Momentum is gaining for the re-opening of Hale Cook Elementary School at 7302 Pennsylvania. Two public events are scheduled in January
*Gunner Hand handed out a recap of the break-out sessions from the November Annual Meeting. It was decided that we would poll the residents again for their top 3 or 4 priorities regarding improvements in the area, then put together a plan to work on them.
*The board agreed that the elections held at the November meeting could have been handled in a more orderly fashion. We will make plans to do better this year.
The next meeting is February 15, 2011 at Tiffany Moore’s home. All residents are invited.
