General Membership Meeting -- October 25th, 2023
We had another great turnout for our Fall Quarterly meeting, and welcomed 2 new Households to the Association that evening. It was a busy meeting.
We announced the selection of two new Directors to the Association's Board of Directors: Larry Farver, who lives in the 2500 block of NW 9th Terrace (west of Powerline Road), and Mike Allison, who resides in the 2600 block of NW 6th Avenue.
Mike and Larry will serve out the unexpired terms of two Directors that resigned from the Board.
We were sorry to see Bob Olenik recently depart the Board for work reasons, and very much thank him for his service to the Community.
The next election for Board of Directors will be April 2024, when all 7 positions will be open.
Members received a briefing from Broward County's Metropolitan Planning Organization on the Wilton Manors Transportation Master Plan. (Presentation is found below). The plan is designed to inform future transportation and mobility investment decisions by the City, especially as they relate to pedestrian and cyclist safety, and East-West flows through the City. Interim findings will be presented to the City Commission at its public meeting on 14 November.
The City made a presentation on the Broward County Surtax Program, which uses the County's special cent sales tax to fund transportation and other infrastructure investments in the County. The City is seeking community input on potential proposals for the next round of surtax funding.
Finally, Association members approved four amendments to the Association's Bylaws that were recommended by the Board. The amendments:
Clarify That There is One Vote Per Household
Update the Membership Renewal Process to Reflect Current Practice of Rolling Renewal Dates
Ease Quorum Requirements for Routine Membership Business; Strengthen Quorum Requirements for Voting on Bylaw Amendments
Reduce to 90 Days the Eligibility Requirement for New Members to Vote in Board Member Elections
