Eiber Neighborhood Association Annual Meeting

April 19, 2018

Eiberhood Annual Meeting – Thursday April 19, 6-8 pm, St Paul’s Episcopal

The Eiber Neighborhood Assoc will be holding its annual business meeting this year on Thursday April 19 at St Paul’s Episcopal Church, 10th and Garrison.

We have changed the format somewhat this year. At 6:00 pm we will be preceding the business meeting with an Open House where developers of some of the neighborhood’s active projects will be available to provide information on their project and answer your questions. If you are curious about these developments, this is a really good opportunity for you to learn more. Invitees include:

· Century Communities – For-sale townhouse developments at 12th and Oak, and at 13th and Independence (across from Eiber Elementary)

· Metro West Housing Solutions (aka Lakewood Housing Authority) – affordable housing apartments at 14th and Independence (Belmont Manor and Masonic Temple)

· Wadsworth Development Group – Starbucks at 10th and Wadsworth

· Treehouse Development LLC – a local partnership proposing a mini-golf facility just south of Starbucks at 965 Wadsworth

· Oak St Station Apartments – market rate apartment complex at 14th and Oak

This is also the time for our meet and greet where you can speak directly with members of the Eiberhood board and city officials. There will also be local food vendors and information tables.

Beginning at 7:00 pm, the regular portion of the meeting will feature representatives from our three local schools - including a production by the Eiber Elementary choir! We will also be awarding our annual Friendship Award, presenting the State of the Neighborhood, and providing a final update on the soon-to-be-released Eiber Historic Survey. The main program will wrap up at 8:00 pm and there will be ample time after the meeting to meet with board members for Q&A.

Our annual meeting is when board members are elected by the membership. We have several vacancies that really need to be filled. There’s a lot going on in the neighborhood, and if we’re going to stay on top of it, we will need more help. Please consider joining us, whether it’s assisting with development and city planning and policy issues, growing our Sustainable Neighborhood projects, or working your pet project to improve the health, safety and livability of the neighborhood. Despite our small volunteer force, the ENA has been a real benefit to the Eiber neighborhood, and with your involvement we can do so much more. We hope to see you there!
