We are happy to announce that after a nearly year long process of outreach, meetings and signature-gathering, Dean Street Block Association has voted to expand into the North Prospect Heights Association. A BIG thank you to all those who helped make this happen! We are now excited to start the next phase as an organization, which is to choose a board and continue our outreach.
Along with the name change, the number of board members was increased “up to 15” people, and the geographic parameters of the organization were expanded.
- Southern boundary: St. Marks from Flatbush Avenue to Vanderbilt Avenue
- Northern boundary: Atlantic Avenue from Flatbush Avenue to Vanderbilt Avenue
- Western boundary: Flatbush Avenue from St. Marks Avenue to Atlantic Avenue
- Eastern boundary: Vanderbilt Avenue from St. Marks Avenue to Atlantic Avenue
The geographic boundaries will define eligibility for board membership and membership of the organization generally.
Our monthly public meetings will continue, typically on the third Monday of the month. We encourage everyone to come, check us out, and give input. You can also give us input via this link: http://bit.ly/npha-agenda.
Board elections will take place on Monday, February 25th. If you are interested in serving on our board, (there’s no experience necessary!), please let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org!
