Draft Agenda

Because the Residents' Association isn't formally constituted yet (that's what we're hoping to do at the meeting on  the 17th), we didn't want to set the agenda without giving others a chance to contribute their ideas. Broadly speaking though, we think the initial meeting should be short, sweet and very positive, focusing on the good things we can do to bring our community together more. Here's what we've come up with so far:

  1. Adopting a formal constitution to create a residents' association - nothing else can happen without this bit of red tape.
  2. Election of 'official' roles (Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer are essential, but we may want others too)
  3. Communications: how to get our messages heard across the community.
  4. Money:  a grant of £1000 is available for community organisations in our area - what could we do with it?
  5. Gardening in the alleys and use of growing space on the bus depot site.
  6. Other business suggested before the meeting.
What do you think? Post a comment if you'd like to contribute anything else to the meeting.
