HNA Meeting Agenda for January 2, 2019

Hillsdale Neighborhood Association

Wednesday January 2, 2019

6:15 – 7:45 PM
Multnomah County Library – Hillsdale Branch


Chair: Matt DeRosa

Please Note: Having personally noticed and been given feedback concerning the issue, interrupting others or speaking out of turn will no longer be acceptable. These meetings are for the benefit of all, and everyone has the right to a chance to speak at the meeting. The Chair of the meeting will keep a queue of names and only those recognized will have the floor. This policy is done in the hope of promoting discourse and allowing people, who generally don’t get the opportunity to speak, the complete attention of the members present.

Purpose and Objectives

The HNA is organized to provide a balanced and open process by which all Members of the neighborhood can involve themselves in the affairs of the community in a courteous and respectful manner by sharing information and ideas and organizing for the betterment of the community. Tonight, the General Meeting has been set up as a forum to learn, debate, and take action on a topic that was brought before the HNA in November.
