Beginning in March, monthly MVA meetings will return to the starting time of 7 PM! If you’ve been coming to meetings for a while, you’ll recall that they previously began at 7 PM. In 2015, we moved to 7:15 PM in order to allow a joint meeting between the MVA and the newly formed Merion Village Block Watch.
Now that the Block Watch has grown into a separate group and meetings are held on a different date and time, the current board felt it may be time to move our meeting start time back to 7 PM. Members in attendance at the monthly meeting on February 5th were asked to vote on this proposed change. The supporting votes were unanimous!
So, next week, our monthly meeting on Wednesday, March 4th (and those in the future) will begin at 7 PM! If you haven’t been able to make it to a meeting recently, or you’re looking for an opportunity to check out the MVA for the first time, we hope you’ll join us next week at this new time!
Regular meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month (except in December, when we hold a community potluck) at 7 PM in the MVA Info Center, located at 1330 S. Fourth Street. Meetings include an agenda with updates about upcoming events and initiatives, review and discussion of any current zoning variance requests in Merion Village and a guest speaker! At the end of each meeting, the floor is open to all in attendance who have questions or information to share. MVA monthly meetings are open to the public and all are encouraged to attend!
We’re looking forward to our 3rd monthly meeting of 2020 and we hope to see you there!
