WHAT IS A COMMUNITY MEMBER MEETING?
We host quarterly gatherings for all community members of the Stevens Square-Loring Heights neighborhood. These are opportunities to elect representatives to the Board of Directors (more on that below), and celebrate our community.
WHAT’S ON THE PROGRAM?
Starting at 10:30, SSCO’s new Executive Director Scott Artley will welcome everyone and kick off the event by giving a slideshow presentation about his previous work in arts and community engagement–there will be lots of photos of Scott in wild costumes, get ready. We’ll explain a little bit about how SSCO works and how you can get involved, then hear mini-reports from SSCO’s committees so you can get the headlines about neighborhood safety, big construction projects, and events. Finally, we’ll be honoring Stevens Community Apartments, Mint Properties, and Copenhagen Enterprises for their participation in the rental rebate program, which encourages renters to get involved in SSCO by offering discounts on their rent.
WHAT IS A SPECIAL ELECTION & WHY ARE YOU HAVING ONE?
The Community Member meetings are the only place where Board members can be elected. Our Annual Election happens in June, but currently we have Board positions open, including officer positions Secretary & Treasurer. A Special Election is necessary to elect these replacement positions. This is your chance to ensure that the people making decisions about your neighborhood will represent your interests. If you are interested in learning more about running for available Board positions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-874-2840.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO VOTE?
All residents (16+ years old) of the Stevens Square-Loring Heights neighborhood attending meetings are considered Members of SSCO. Representatives of businesses/institutions located in the neighborhood are also eligible. The neighborhood’s boundaries are Highway I-94 to the north, Franklin Avenue to the south, Lyndale Avenue to the west, and Highway I-35W to the east.
