Subject: Voting on the neighborhood name
I think we can all agree that whatever is decided for this neighborhood registry, it will affect all of the neighbors in the area delineated.  For a couple of months now, I have been struggling with how many neighbors gathering at a meeting should make a quorum? Going door to door gives a ground-level view of opinions.
Each of the last two meetings were 2 1/2 hours long, and the subject of the name was tabled both times. These meetings are an investment of our time. In order to move forward at this point, we need information from the neighborhood, and I think we should have as many neighbors’ opinions as we can get involved. The polling that I have done provides us information about what people who have not come to the meetings are thinking.  I think there is a good bit of value in that for both the neighborhood and for our progress at the next meeting.
As an example, one of our neighbors, Dee Jett, suggested the name Oak Hills, and others I spoke to were excited about that. Dee is one of the people that is not interested in going to an evening meeting, but I think her voice and many others should be heard.
Your Neighbor,
