STBNA November monthly meeting

You’re probably wondering why we see so much information flowing over from STBNA? Well, simply put, it never hurts to learn from other neighborhood associations what issues they have to solve. However, in particular, Rolund LeBrun serving as President for the STBNA group also works tirelessly on traffic issues that impact our area. In particular, he devotes a great deal of his time advocating on our behalf to ensure High Speed Rail implementation is handled properly without destroying our neighborhoods. To that end, 11/28 is the November monthly meeting for STBNA, details follow:

You may have seen, a few days ago on Nextdoor, a post by Joshua Barousse, a District 2 Council Aide, indicating the District 2 PB voting process has resumed. Search for his post or see it below.

Below is the post and flyers associated with the resumption of voting. Register to vote in this PB process by linking to the websites shown in links below, registering, then awaiting a confirmation email from a District 2 staff (possibly Erika Salazar), asking for validation of your house address, like a recent PGE bill, a copy of water bill, etc. You can cross off the account number. You can view the project ideas in the voting ballot on the City’s website.
