The Orient Heights Neighborhood Council (OHNC) would like to update the Orient Heights residents as to their summer meeting plans in light of COVID-19 and the MA reopening plan:
JUNE – No meeting, explore virtual options.
The YMCA is unable to host the meeting at present; we hope to hear more from them soon. Additionally, Phase 2 of the MA reopening plan does not give clear guidance on an indoor gathering size quota, although it would assuredly not allow everyone to meet in person yet. Several East Boston neighborhood associations are exploring virtual options such as Zoom meetings. We are exploring this possibility as well. We appreciate feedback from you on the idea of a fully virtual or hybrid virtual/in person model meeting. (Email: [email protected]). We are also exploring outdoor, physically-distanced meetings.
JULY – Meeting on July 20, full details TBD.
.Regular meeting time: Monday, July 20, 6:30 p.m. Location TBD depending upon the nature of the reopening process. Might be in person, hybrid in person/virtual, or totally virtual. More info to come. Agenda items from March will be prioritized, and nominations for new board elections will be taken up to and during that meeting as well (positions are all open for election: Chairperson [President], Vice-Chairperson [VP], and Secretary).
August – BONUS meeting called by the Chair/President
Bonus meeting to be held Monday, August 17, at 6:30 p.m. location TBD. Purpose of the meeting will be to catch up on “lost time” as well as to hold the new board elections. New board will be instated starting September and will be in place for two years.
