Do you have opinions on current neighborhood issues? Concerns you’d like to see addressed? Ideas for local projects or improvements? FPNA seeks enthusiastic neighbors to participate in its all-volunteer, non-philanthropic board (no monetary commitment required). Our board activities range from fielding questions on small-scale matters like potholes and tree plantings to participating in city and state-level advocacy efforts. In the last year, we’ve weighed in on construction plans for lower Gano Street, building proposals for I-195 parcels near South Main Street, a proposed zoning change for the Fane tower, and other issues related to land use, historic properties, night clubs, and liquor licensing. We also build community through fun events like our annual holiday carol-sing and Earth Day cleanup.
FPNA Board membership is a good way to get a sneak-peek into the latest issues and happenings in Fox Point, boost your resume, and make a difference in your neighborhood—all with a surprisingly low time commitment. Duties include attending monthly meetings, sharing your opinions, and lending a hand on issues, projects, or events that interest you.
