Wilde Lake Community Association Neighborhood Representative Committee
Chair: Chuck Yarbrough (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Staff: Lexi Levy Milani (email@example.com)
Join us for our Neighborhood Reps kickoff Zoom! This meeting is scheduled for Thursday, March 23 at 7PM ET and is open to all Wilde Lake residents who might be interested in volunteering as a neighborhood rep. Please register if you intend to attend.
Are you interested in staying on top of Wilde Lake news and events? Do you know your neighbors – or wish you knew them better? Are you seeking a flexible, interesting volunteer opportunity? The Wilde Lake Village Board (WLVB) invites you to join our Neighborhood Representative Committee to help us enhance community spirit among Wilde Lake residents!
What is the role of a neighborhood representative? Neighborhood representatives get to know the residents on their streets and foster two-way communication with them about resident priorities and needs as well as WLCA activities. The goal is to foster a feeling of community and positive support throughout Wilde Lake.
What kinds of activities might a neighborhood rep undertake? There are a few tasks that WLCA asks its neighborhood reps to perform – but we also ask reps to make the job their own! Core activities are listed below, with some ideas for optional activities starred.
What is the time commitment? Initially, there may be a few hours required to meet your neighbors if you don’t already know them. After that, we would expect just 2-4 hours a month. Almost all activities can be done on your own schedule, and some longer streets may have more than one neighborhood rep to keep the commitment manageable.
Questions? Contact Lexi Levy Milani at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 410-730-3987 if you need additional information or want to sign up!
