As BHNA moved into 2017 the organization needed to streamline to operate effectively, with the understanding that we all lead very busy lives. To do so, we opted for at least 4 general meetings per year (instead of 10), as we acknowledged the importance of keeping our association strong in the face of the many challenges our community will be facing. BUT YOUR HELP IS ESSENTIAL, TOO!
BHNA serves a critical role in working with the San Mateo United Homeowners Association to represent YOU, and additionally to work toward transparency in our local government.
Our city (and region) is currently faced with a wide array of challenges, including more higher density development, reduced parking, reduced impact assessments, un-checked eminent domain, raising of building heights (this expires soon!), re-routing of commuting traffic through traditionally quite residential streets, etc.
YOU CAN SEE WHY OUR NEED FOR A STRONG ASSOCIATION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER. Our governmental representatives base their decisions on what they hear – BHNA is seen as a primary leader and a voice of reason who takes the representation of our neighbors seriously. Without it, many decisions will be passed without community representation.
Please let us know if you would like to be a part of this organization! Every person counts – and you can play an important role in your community.
