Community Engagement Committee:
A focus on how to best bring our community together. We innovate community-building events, enhance neighborhood partnerships, broaden our communication reach, and more.
In 2019, the Community Engagement Committee hosted two new community building events: the Tangletown Winter Fest and the Tangletown Street Party. They also created a welcome bag jam packed with helpful information that is delivered to new residents in Tangletown.
The Community Engagement committee meets on the 1st Wednesday of each month at 7pm at Fuller Park.
Initiatives, resources, and events that reduce negative environmental impacts and protect our planet.
In 2019, the Environmental Committee received a $10,000 grant for a variety of outreach initiatives to increase sign ups and use of organics recycling. They hosted a variety of educational events including field trips to the Eureka Recycling Center and to the commercial compost site, workshops on organics recycling, and a sustainability cooking class. They also held a contest for a custom storm drain stencil design and stenciled over 50 drains across Tangletown with the winning design. They created incentives for storm drain adoptees and rolled out a new energy rebate program for insulation and attic sealing.
Their three core areas of focus include water quality, waste reduction, and energy efficiency. They run a monthly blog series called Sustainability Sam which answers resident questions about how to improve their sustainability in their day to day lives.
The Environmental Committee meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7pm at Fuller Park.
Programs, events, and initiatives to enhance the built environment of the neighborhood and make it an EVEN BETTER place to live.
In 2019, the Spaces Committee created two new neighborhood beautification events: Spring Spruce Up and Autumn Alley Clean Up. Spring Spruce Up encouraged residents to commit to cleaning their boulevards and yards, provided resources and tips, and hosted a contest for most improved! At our Autumn Alley Clean Up we provided dumpsters for residents to clear out unsightly items from their alleys and side yards. Additionally, the committee has prepared the content and designs to install historical markers at the Washburn Water Tower in 2020.
The Spaces Committee meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm at Fuller Park.
