FPNA Invites Neighbors to Give Back
Are you a Fox Point resident with concerns about the neighborhood? Ideas for improvements? Affection for this vibrant, historic area? FPNA seeks enthusiastic residents of all ages to serve on our Board of Directors. Whether you are a homeowner or renter, a longtime resident or newcomer, we value your participation.
Board membership involves attending local meetings, thinking about current neighborhood issues, and sharing your views. In recent years, FPNA board members have fought for a thoughtful redesign of lower Gano Street, weighed in on proposals for developments on 195 land, and spoken out on issues of historic preservation. They’ve worked with local business owners seeking licenses and expansions. And they have helped sister organizations in ongoing efforts to fight the proposed Fane Tower, preserve the Seekonk River, and bury the power lines in India Point Park—all in only a few hours each month.
FPNA board members also improve the neighborhood with shovels, rakes, and trowels. In recent years, board members have planted trees, installed “conversation benches,” and cleaned up tree wells on Wickenden Street. They’ve pruned shrubs outside the Vartan Gregorian bathhouse for the annual FPNA Earth Day Cleanup and spruced up the shoreline near the Fox Point hurricane barrier.
FPNA board membership is a chance to learn the latest neighborhood news, engage on issues large and small, and in so doing, help make a difference. We hope you’ll join us.
FPNA is a non-profit organization that has served the neighborhood for over 30 years. To learn more about board membership, please email FPNA Executive Secretary Amy Mendillo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
