There will be a Special Meeting of the ENA Board to elect officers on June 1st, 7PM, Duniway School Library.
On Thursday night, March 16th, the ENA board, with all 19 members in attendance, voted to proceed with the Historic District nomination for Eastmoreland. The vote breakdown was as follows:
The neighborhood poll on the Historic District was a non-binding advisory poll. It was not a vote. The content, structure, and language of the poll was hotly contested up until the day, and even after, it was sent to the printer. While there were board members who spoke on behalf of “the board” before the outcome was known, there were many members who never publicly stated how they would ultimately regard the results. The poll was only one of many factors that board members took into account.
The Spring edition of the ENA Newsletter will include a summary from each board member of the rationale for their decision. The newsletter should be mailed to every resident in mid-April.
Poll forms mailed to eligible homeowners = 2,066
Opposed = 702
In favor = 666
No opinion = 19
Did not return a ballot = 679
Keep Eastmoreland Free, an organization opposing the Eastmoreland historic district, distributed a flyer throughout the neighborhood, which made assertions involving the Irvington Historic District. The president of the Irvington Community Association responded to those assertions in a February 17, 2017 letter to Eastmoreland residents. It begins:
“It has come to our attention that a flyer has been sent out by the organization “Keep Eastmoreland Free” which purports to state certain facts involving the Irvington National Historic District. The flyer is insidious in that it mixes partially true statements with falsehoods and then mixes those with statements that are very misleading.”
The letter specifically addresses the statements in the flyer. Click here for the letter in its entirety.
