Poultry Processing?

Poultry processing plant in west Boise . . .. will certainly never happen. Why? Because people would come out of the woodwork and stop it. That seems to be the way things go these days. People quickly react to perceived threats but often fail to support positive change. I expect a “poultry processing plant” to be a negative for most of us!

Sorry for the trickery if you otherwise wouldn’t have come to Centennial’s website. It is critically important, however, that, as your Neighborhood Association president I get this message to as many of our Centennial residents and businesses as possible.

This past Thursday evening Centennial held its 3rd Qtr. Open Board meeting. The meeting was announced a week in advance on our website, Facebook page, Nextdoor and emails were sent to our complete “membership” mailing list.

We had a total of nine in attendance at Thursday’s meeting

Board members (3), Our fourth Board member was not able to attend because of a family medical emergency. Board member spouses (2), Library presenters (2), Energize Our Neighborhoods and Public Works presenters (2), Centennial residents or business owners (0). Energize Boise and Boise Public works gave highly informative and interesting presentations.

Centennial Neighborhood Association’s next regular meeting is the third Thursday of October. At this meeting there are some organizational tasks that must be completed, not the least of which is the election of Board members. As it stands now two of our current four boards have served their maximum consecutive terms and must go off the board. That leaves me, currently president and our Treasurer. We need a minimum of three board members to fulfill Neighborhood Association requirements. Our bylaws call for a board of five to seven at a maximum.

There are many ways you can contribute to supporting your Centennial Neighborhood’s efforts to make our neighborhood “a great place to live, to work and to raise a family”. You don’t need to be on the Board. If a Board seat is something you might be interested in email us, and we can discuss. Review our “make a difference” page on our website. Is there something there you could help with?

As a reminder, here are just a few of the things your neighborhood association is tracking and advocating for you:

Our Annual Meeting, October 19th, is not very far off!

Yes, I was sneaky in the post (Poultry Processing) I made to hopefully bring more of a response to come to our Centennilana.org website. I hope you’ll forgive me for that, but October 19th is very near, and your Board needs to know it has or doesn’t have the support to continue doing all that it can to “make your Centennial Neighborhood a great place to live, to work and to raise a family”
