New BNA Bylaws for approval in January 2022!

Bottineau Neighborhood Association has developed new, updated bylaws that better serve our community.  We will be voting on these new bylaws on Tuesday, January 11th, 2022, 7pm at the BNA Board Meeting.

PROPOSED BNA BYLAWS

One major change is the addition of term limits.

“All Directors will serve a 2-year term. The Corporation will utilize staggered terms or any other reasonable method to preserve institutional knowledge continuation. There is no limitation on the number of terms a Director may serve, except that Directors must take at least two years off after serving 6 consecutive years.”

Attend our January meeting to vote!  You can also email questions in advance to bna@bottineauneighborhood.org.

BECOME A BOARD MEMBER!

Please join your very own Bottineau Neighborhood Association Board. We meet once a month (currently we meet on the 2nd Tuesday but we are evaluating if another day/time would help with engagement).

To qualify to be on the Board, you must be one or more of the following:
* resident of Bottineau Neighborhood (own or rent), OR
* a business owner or land owner in Bottineau, OR
* an employee of a business in Bottineau.

Our community deserves to the advocacy you can bring! We need your ideas on community events for us to host, city involvement, grants, murals, etc.

A lot will be changing with Lowry Avenue in the not-to-far future and that will affect us greatly! The Upper Harbor Terminal will affect us greatly! Let’s work together to make sure that we are active in the city decisions affecting our community! Or… help us pick a good Movie in the Park… Do what you can!
