Neighbors,

BCNA will hold annual Officer and Sector Representative elections on Tuesday, December 11,
at the General Association Meeting.

We published most candidate statements in the BCNA newsletter that you should have received by now.
However, some neighbors have announced their candidacy since then, so I am re-sending all statements.
With 13 positions on the ballot, that makes for a lot of reading.
I am therefore breaking them down into several e-mails:

President,
Director of Communications
VP Neighborhood Issues and VP External Affairs
Treasurer, Secretary
Green & Lavender Sector Reps
Blue & Yellow Sector Reps
Pink & Brown Sector Reps
Orange Sector – STILL NEED CANDIDATE

Thanks,
Ingrid Weigand
Member, BCNA Elections Committee

It’s My Park Day celebration in the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt

Neighbors,

Thank you to everyone who attended the West Bouldin Creek Greenbelt Open House on Saturday, November 3. We had a very good turn out – about 40 people, including several Zilker residents, explored the trails, looked at the new signage and got updates on future plans to improve the Post Oak Street Trailhead.

A thanks to Matt Coldwell for our new WBCGB sign ! View HERE

Take a look for yourself: https://flic.kr/s/aHskHKo4vi

Many thanks to those of you who helped clear the trails and pick up trash before the event and especially the BCNA Parks Committee members who created and installed our temporary signage.

The trails on the greenbelt will only stay open and weed-free if they are used – so take yourselves, your kids and your (leashed, please) pets for a walk, look for wildlife & native plants and enjoy this marvelous green space in the middle of our neighborhood

If you see anything that needs attention, please e-mails parkscommittee@bouldincreek.org

Thanks,

Ingrid Weigand
