Message from the Chair
Board Meeting Update: At PPCC’s last Board meeting on October 14, 2021, we welcomed the new and returning PPCC organization members and their reps. Their terms run from October 1, 2021 (the start of PPCC’s fiscal year) to September 30,2022. To see the organization reps’ names and contact information, visit Organizations.
I also announced the following members of the new PPCC 2021 Awards Committee (combining the Selection and Event Committees, as we won’t be able to hold an in-person gala event this year): Committee Chair — Kevin Niles (2019 Citizen of the Year); additional members — David Card; Sharon Kilbride (2015 Citizen of the Year), Sue Kohl, and Mary Mueller. The Committee will review the community’s nominations for Citizen of the Year and Golden Sparkplug Awards, and will select the award recipients with input from the PPCC Board. The awardees’ names will be announced at the November 18th PPCC board meeting.
Don’t forget to get in your Awards nominations! See the Awards Nomination Press Release linked above — deadline for nominations October 31, 9pm.
In addition, at the October 14th meeting PPCC’s Board passed two motions unanimously: a motion recommended by the WRAC board, calling for Councilmembers to cooperate with local councils in submitting resolutions in City Council to designate sites for enforcement under the anti-camping ordinance; and a motion to support in spirit a WRAC-recommended motion calling for revision of proposed amendments to the Code of Conduct for neighborhood councils.
