CHCA – Membership Meeting, Monday, March 11, 2019, 7pm
Walter Reed Community Center
7:00 PM President’s Update and the goals for tonight – Ron Haddox
Topics of Discussion: This month’s CHCA meeting will feature Christian Dorsey, answering your question on where we are with Amazon and what is the county’s next steps. The hour about Amazon and the county’s next step is intended for Columbia Heights residents only and that questions will only be taken from Columbia Heights residents. We can make this statement as the county board said publicly at Saturday’s meeting that they were fanning out and intended to get one board member at EVERY civic association in the next month and would go to any other meetings they could. If someone from another association wants to express an opinion they need to get their board to host a meeting.
