Annual Meeting and Board of Directors Election

Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2015

7 p.m. @ Windom Park Recreation Center

2251 Hayes St. NE, Minneapolis

(north end of Pillsbury School building)

Are you an adult who lives in, owns property in, or represents a business in the Windom Park neighborhood? Then you are eligible to VOTE in this election.

All those eligible to vote who have attended a WPCiA neighborhood meeting from November 2014 through October 2015 are eligible to RUN FOR A SEAT on the board.

Five seats on the nine-member board are up for election this year; so far we know of three candidates who are running. This is a great opportunity to help shape the community. Be a voice for yourself and for your neighbors. Get key projects moving forward, and create new ones. Got leadership skills you want to share, or want to develop skills for leadership?  It's also a great method of getting to know your neighbors and the city you live in... and a thousand and one more good reasons to run!

Time commitment is what you want to make it. (The board meets the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.)

Feel free to nominate yourself. Nominations will be taken from the floor at the annual meeting, or let us know in advance so we can enter your name.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (of Composting)

At our February 2015 neighborhood meeting, residents learned the best ways of environmentally friendly backyard composting to keep pets, wildlife, kids and your neighbors safe, sound and happy. With WPCiA's backing, City Council Member Kevin Reich agreed to move forward with a proposal to change the city's composting ordinance. We continue to follow this topic and advocate for the suggested changes. Residents have proposed that, at a minimum, the city require lids and enclosed bins for backyard compost projects to cut down on the possible spread of toxins created in the composting process. Please see the city's web site for details on proper methods of backyard composting and what materials cannot be placed in your bin.
