Victory Heights Community Council Organizing Meeting Tuesday

The resurrected Victory Heights Community Council will be having its organizing meeting this Tuesday, January 15th at 7 PM at the Co-Operative Preschool building in Victory Heights Park (we recommend bringing your own chairs, the preschool’s are all for small children). Residents are encouraged to attend and vote on a new set of by-laws (see a PDF draft of the proposed by-laws) as well as a slate of officers including President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer.

Although this seems like a lot of effort just to organize fun community things like Easter egg hunts, block parties, or get a traffic circle put in, the city and especially the North District Council take an organized community group much more seriously when it comes to dealing with neighborhood issues. The old Victory Heights Community Council (active in the late 90s) left behind a substantial amount of money which has been parked in a bank account for several years and could be put to good use again.

    Doesn’t look like I can make the meeting, but I noticed that on the East side of our park and several other blocks west of 20th there are very few and often no fire hydrants. Even when there are Hydrants many aren’t marked with the blue reflector in the street so the fire dep can find the hydrant in a hurry. I suggest that people check to see if their house has a hydrant close enough to provide water in the event of a fire. This seems like a subject that our community should embrace as a single unit.

    This is a good point, Brandon, I’ll look into it, thanks.

  3. So I’m interested in putting my name in the hat for being on the council. 🙂 I really really apologize for the lateness for bringing this up. Who should I talk to before tomorrow?
