The membership committee is hard at work canvassing the Friends of LaVista Park both existing and new. We are grateful to the area businesses that support LaVista Park through the “Friends” program and make our lives more enjoyable and convenient through the services they provide. The April 21 quarterly meeting is our official membership campaign kick-off and the membership committee will provide a membership campaign update at the meeting. Show your support by signing-up at the April meeting.
One of our 2011 initiatives is to focus more on our park- LaVista Park. Members of the Citadel Garden Club and other neighbors have formed a park planning committee and have been working on identifying signature park improvement projects that we can all help bring to reality in 2011. The committee is also working on creating regular park work days to clean-up and maintain our park. The park planning committee will be our featured speakers at the April 21 meeting and will share their park improvement project ideas and ways we can all get involved to make our park more beautiful and enjoyable.
There are several opportunities to get involved in the LaVista Park Civic Association .Just a bit of your time can make a big difference!
We are a founding neighborhood member of The Lindbergh LaVista Corridor Coalition (LLCC), a 501c(3) non-profit, comprised of concerned residents and businesses of Lindridge-Martin Manor, Woodland Hills and LaVista Park. LLCC completed a 30-year visionary study and now plans to fund, adapt, and implement certain ideas from the Blueprints for Successful Communities Study. To do this, LLCC is collaborating with the outside expertise of the international urban design firm Perkins+ Will to help develop a strategic plan and urban design guidelines for the community. LLCC’s goal is to have a positive influence on the changes that face our neighborhoods, now and in the future. LaVista Park has one open position on the LLCC board and if you are interesting in serving as a LaVista Park representative, please contact me for details.Our communications/technology committee has room for volunteers. This committee is focused on making sure we have effective and streamlined ways to best communicate to LaVista Park; including the LVPCA Web site, newsletter, e-mail notifications and social media like Facebook.
I encourage you to get involved in an area of interest and I know you will feel a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment in giving back to this great neighborhood.
I look forward to seeing you at the April 21 quarterly meeting.
