I just sent this to my email list of Homewood residents:
Is it too late to say Happy New Year? Oh well!
The first monthly meeting of Block Watch Plus for 2014 is to be held Thursday, Jan. 16, at 6 p.m. in the South Conference Room at the Homewood-Brushton YMCA.
I ask you to make a special effort to attend this meeting, for two reasons:
1) As you probably know by now, Jose Diaz, the staffer who served as BWP's primary point of contact at Operation Better Block, is no longer with the organization, so that bit of outside assistance is gone (OBB as an organization may still be supportive, but I don't know that any particular person on staff has been assigned to the group).
2) I am stepping down as chair of Block Watch Plus. After nearly three years of seeking to grow BWP into a group of residents so united that no one can go around us, and having no success, I want to give someone else a shot at leading the group. I think the decision about who that person will be should be up to the residents of Homewood.
I propose that we devote Thursday's meeting to discussing the issues that you want Block Watch Plus to address, and to forming a nominating committee to seek out candidates for the position of chair, so that the group can vote for a new chair in next month's meeting. But that's just my proposal. If you folks choose to do something different on Thursday, that's fine.
In any case, I hope to see you at the meeting.
Elwin Green, chair
Block Watch Plus
