Westview Community Organization
Yesterday, I had the privilege of attending Westview’s association meeting. Which is held the first Monday of every month at 7PM-SHARP at the Calvary Methodist Church located at 1471 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd. (I’ll have to add a calendar to this blog)
It was wonderful to meet long standing residents- some since 1968- and to see their passion and commitment to their community. As well as the new residents getting involved. Many professional; Architects, Lawyers etc..
The commitment of the board, and their ability to get things done was refreshing. Many of you may know the VP Scott Smith, from his involvement’s throughout the community and within our Neighborhood Planning Unit T. The Berry’s (Patrick and Steffi of Westview Bungalow blog) have also taken on many new initiatives. However, there is still room for additional volunteers.
A donation will be made to the women’s shelter located on Westview for Thanksgiving.
The Christmas Dinner will be at Fire Station #17 on December 8th at 2:30PM
Westview is getting Street toppers! While the community is in the discussion stage of how they will fund this, I think residents and non residents would be welcomed to begin with donations towards this. Many of the residents have served and lived within the community long enough to have paid their dues- they deserve this small recognition. So I ask those of us that can to support this. Right now we’re looking at prices of each topper being $35-40. The more we buy the cheaper they will be. Patrick and Steffi are heading this – see them for additional details.
Vacant Homes. The Westview, like the Historic West End, has also faced many challenges with vacant homes. We are looking to fill these beautiful, affordable in-town homes quickly! I will be working very hard to help with this process and ask your help. I would be happy to work with any buyer interested in these communities.
Again, it was a very informative meeting, which I’ll attend monthly and hope to meet new residents and non residents with an interest in the Westview community. Come out- show your support and be apart of the wonderful changes!!!
