Neighborhood Council Celebrates First Year

Just a little over a year ago it was an idea shared by residents scattered throughout St. Augustine’s neighborhoods: an organization of neighborhood associations, each representing their unique area by providing a forum for residents to get to know each other better, build pride in their neighborhoods and work together to make those neighborhoods better places to live.

That was a little over a year ago.

Today, it is a reality, and on June 17, the Neighborhood Council of St. Augustine, Inc. will celebrate its inaugural year of success with several events including the organization’s initial annual meeting. Today there are eight fully organized associations and another two in developmental stages.

Lots of activities

Neighborhood Week will begin when St. Augustine Mayor George Gardner issues a proclamation to that effect during the City Commission meeting on Monday, June 14.

The day of the annual meeting, Thursday, June 17, begins at noon with a luncheon at Flagler College with Florida Secretary of State Glenda Hood as the keynote speaker. Secretary Hood's previous experience as mayor of Orlando introduced her to the vital role played by neighborhood organizations. She became a driving force behind the Orlando neighborhood program and has shown strong support at a statewide level for the important role neighborhood associations can play.

Following the luncheon, the Neighborhood Council has arranged for a tour of several of the city’s neighborhoods. The tour, conducted by David Nolan, has limited space but is open to members of the general public.

The busy day will conclude with the organization’s official annual meeting to be held at Government House at 5:00pm. The meeting will include the election of Neighborhood Council officers, brief reports from each neighborhood and then an informal Q&A with Secretary Hood.
