The Board of Duboce Triangle Neighborhood Association now meets every month. At the January 2022 meeting, we discussed the following:
2022 DTNA Election
Plan to conduct online voting using Election Runner and mailing paper ballots to those few members for whom DTNA has no email address in February, as DTNA did in 2021. Current Board members have expressed an interest in continuing on the Board, although the current DTNA Treasurer would like to pass the baton for that position and return to his Director’s role if a new Treasurer candidate can be identified. There are currently two Board seat vacancies. Two DTNA members have reached out to the Board expressing their interest in serving on the Board. See DTNA 2022 Election Post in News/Update blog.
Board Goals for 2022
Each Board member was asked what Goal they would be the champion for in 2022 and what Goal they would help another Board member address. Five working groups were identified: Land Use: Kevin Riley; Open/Public Space (Beautification, Trees, Slow Triangle): Frank Tizedes, Erik Honda, Hans Galland; Membership: Paige Rausser; Website: Bob Bush; Newsletter: Rose Linke.
2022 Meeting Schedule
Reaffirmed new monthly first Monday Board meetings; every odd-numbered month second Monday, Land Use; and maintaining every even-numbered month second Monday Public Community meetings shortened to one hour (07:00PM to 08:00PM). Meetings will remain virtual for now with expectation to add periodic in-person social meet-ups like the October 17th block party or, when feasible, the December 2019 meeting party.
With additional new advertisers need to review how many pages are needed to ensure space for needed content. Further discussion referred to the Newsletter Working Group.
Bundle membership for all membership levels above Household approved. Online ordering of newsletter advertisements has been added to website.
Land Use Updates
DTNA will address desired inclusion of 20% Affordable Housing based on recommendations from the Land Use committee on a project-by-project basis instead of a 2015 Letter of Intent that other signatories no longer adhere to.
Upcoming February General Meeting Agenda
2022 DTNA Election of Officers and Board Directors; Duboce Triangle Street Trees and Public Works tree trimming planned in 2022; and introduction of some new neighborhood businesses.
