Announcement of Civic League Annual Meeting
Election of Directors and Officers
April 18, 2018
Dear Roland Park Civic League Members and Residents:
I am pleased to announce the annual meeting of the general membership of the Roland Park Civic League will take place on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 beginning promptly at 7:00 p.m. in the multi- purpose room at the Roland Park Elementary/Middle School. Doors will open at 6:30p for check-in, refreshments and a little live music. In the spirit of participative democracy, all Civic League members are encouraged to attend, and all interested Roland Park residents are invited. Among our responsibilities at this meeting will be the election of officers and plat representatives for the 2018-2019 term. A slate of officers and directors proposed by our nominating committee is enclosed with this letter. Additional nominations may be made from the floor.
Following introductions, we will conduct the election of officers and plat representatives. We will then hear a few words from our elected officials in attendance.
The Board of the Civic League will report on their significant activities for the past year and goals for the coming year. The Treasurer will provide a financial update and we’ll hear from the Roland Park Community Foundation, the Maintenance Committee, the newly formed Events Committee and we’ll present the current status of the Greater Roland Park Master Plan.
At last year’s annual meeting, we told you that committees had been formed to work on a project approval process, a communications policy and an ethics policy. All three are complete and we will provide detail on the finished products. We will also give you an update on the proposed development at Falls Road and Northern Parkway—the Overlook at Roland Park.
The evening will culminate with a follow up to the April 12th DOT meeting concerning safety on Roland Avenue and the RPCL request for the restoration of curbside parking with wider, safer bike lanes. Michelle Pourciau, the Director of the Department of Transportation, will be present to offer updated thoughts. Unlike the meeting at St. David’s, this is not an opportunity for us to voice opinions. We will, however, give you specific guidance on whom to contact with issues or concerns.
Those general members of the Roland Park Civic League whose dues are current are entitled to vote on Board nominations and any other business addressed at our annual meeting. If you have not paid your Civic League dues you will have the opportunity to pay by cash or check at the meeting. We look forward to seeing you on May 22nd.
President, Roland Park Civic League
