Neighborhood Summit – UNOE General Meeting-August 2018


Join us for our August General Meeting on Thurs., Aug. 236:30pm at the C K Newsome Center, 100 Walnut St. This month we’ll be in the Rec Room–just follow the signs.

Our August General Meeting will take a different approach and agenda than usual months. During the UNOE Board Retreat earlier this year, members sought to pool information that had been gleaned from Neighborhood Associations throughout the year. Repeatedly, someone said, “We need to ask the Neighborhoods.” From that, we’re launching the Neighborhood Summit format for this month.

Plan now with the members of your Neighborhood Association to be a part of this special gathering as we together…
~ Discuss the successes & challenges of Neighborhoods
~ Encourage one another in the essential work we do
~ Identify action steps for continuing to preserve, enhance & promote the Evansville and area neighborhoods

Neighborhood Presidents, watch for more information in the mail and/or email to equip you for preparing with your members for this gathering.

Everyone interested, check out the first page of the August edition of the UNOE newsletter “Neighbor to Neighbor” for ways to prepare yourself too.

Together we can learn from one another, encourage each other and discover ideas and solutions for continuing the great impact that neighborhoods have on our community!

See you at the Summit in a few weeks!

The public is always welcome.

PREPARING FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD SUMMIT
Download the Neighborhood Pulse form and the Questionnaire-UNOE’s Support of Neighborhood Associations.
Complete both through discussions with your members and bring/send them along with those from your Neighborhood who’ll attend the Summit

UNOE General Meeting – February 2018

Join us for our February General Meeting on
Thurs., Feb. 22 – 6:30pm
at the C.K. Newsome Center.
Our guest speaker will be Meg Connolly, with the League of Women Voters of Southwestern Indiana, as she focuses on efforts to curb gerrymandering and to promote redistricting reform in Indiana.

– Every 10 years, following the census, the constitution says states are to look at changes in population distribution and, if necessary, redraw legislative districts for US Representatives. States also look at district lines for state legislators. The next census is in 2020.

– Since we have been drawing lines for legislative districts, parties (or groups drawing the lines) have tried to do so to maximize their own influence on the legislature. This is known as gerrymandering.

– During the 2018 Indiana Legislative Session there will be discussion of Redistricting and a new Senate Bill: SB 136. Be an informed constituent.

Join us at the General Meeting in February!

GUEST SPEAKER


Mike Labitzke, the Deputy Director Utilities, with the City’s Program Management Office. Mike will be sharing information about the 2018 Projects with the Water Replacement Program for the City-wide Distribution System.

Refresh Evansville is a long-term strategy to replace aging water mains and supporting infrastructure.

The Evansville Water and Sewer Utility maintains 1,000 miles of water lines within the system, of which 600 miles are cast-iron pipes with an average age of over 90 years. These are now at or past their life expectancy.

Refresh Evansville will take decades to complete, but these ongoing annual improvements will ensure that our children and future generations will continue to enjoy safe, clean drinking water.
