Community Board 7 meeting on special night

Usually reserved for the third Tuesday of the month, Community Board 7's general meeting in September will happen to tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Bedford Park Senior Center, 243 E. 204th St.

The first meeting since June's elections should be action packed as the board has lots to discuss, including rezoning options that would make way for proposed developments, new bi-law amendments and possibly news about the search to fill the Board's vacant district manager position.

[By the way, that link above sends you to a new story now on the sparkling new Norwood News Web site. We hope you're as excited about it as we are. Here's another link to the site just for fun!]

Another note on the Board meeting. Council candidate Haile Rivera (14th District), who has been showing up in this space often over the past few weeks, sent out an email press release today saying he would be going to all CB7 meetings and most of the CB5 meetings (he has a scheduling conflict), "because I care of the issues in my community and I want to do something about them. There is no better source to know what the issues are then to hear them directly from those affected."

We've been trumpeting the value of local Community Boards for years and elected officials generally pay attention to what happens there, but it's nice to see someone else echoing us. Check it out for yourself at the meeting tonight.


  1. The new Norwood News website is beautiful! Great job on it!

  2. The new site is great as G. Lobo Jost stated previously. It's now on my favorites. Thanks everyone at the Norwood News for making it more reader-friendly....Way to go!
