You are cordially invited to attend the Southeast Neighbors Spring Meeting on Thursday, May 4th from 7:00pm to 8:30pm, Hilyard Center, 2580 Hilyard St. Free child care will be available on site. The two most important reasons to attend are:

  1. Neighborhood Board Elections. Seven positions are open for election to the neighborhood board on Thursday, May 4: chair, vice-chair and five at-large directors. We are also recruiting a newsletter editor, treasurer, web site/social media manager, and Tugman Park Coordinator. Stand for election and vote for your 2017-2019 representatives. Every resident, property owner, and business owner (18 years of  age or older) within the neighborhood boundary is eligible to vote and serve.
  2. Rest Stops. Regan Watjus, Policy Coordinator on Homelessness for the City of
    Eugene will join us to share information about the rest stop program. Heather
    Sielicki will present an update from the Vulnerable Populations Working Group on locating safe shelter in South Eugene.

All meetings are open to the public and begin with a public comment session for
citizens to express opinions, raise issues, and provide information to the Association. We are committed to treating all people fairly, and to fully embracing the unique contribution of all residents regardless of age, faith, race, national origin, immigration status, gender identity, ability, ethnicity, housing status, sexual orientation, economic or other social status.

Agenda Review and Introductions (5)

Public Comment (15)
All meetings are open to the public and begin with a public comment session for citizens to express opinions, raise issues, and provide information to the Association.

Neighborhood Board Elections (45)
Those wishing to serve on the board will share a brief statement before ballots are cast. Winners will be selected based on a majority vote of the attending members.

Rest Stops (30)
Rest stops provide safe and legal places for unhoused people to sleep and connect with housing and social services. They have been effective at moving people from unsafe and unsanctioned places to a managed space that has the structure and support needed to help them transition and improve their lives. Discuss sites that are under consideration with Regan Watjus, Policy Coordinator on Homelessness. Q&A with Nightingale Health Sanctuary managers.
