What does a block captain do?
  • Attend neighborhood meetings whenever possible (10 scheduled meetings per year, usually at 7pm on the third Tuesday of the month at Lowell Elementary School)
  • Act as the human connection between neighbors and the neighborhood association
  • Distribute fliers the week before general meeting or events
  • Talk to neighbors about the association and association's projects
  • Report problems, issues or successes of your block to the neighborhood association
How much time does it take?

Probably less than one hour each month in addition to the neighborhood general meetings.

What is a block captain’s term?

We’re hoping you’ll be a block captain as long as you live in the neighborhood, but all things change and life can get complicated. If you find you are unable to continue your duties, try to find a replacement but just let Deb Hudson know so there isn’t a gap in communications.

Who are the block captains?

Here is a list of our current block captains and their blocks as well as estimated numbers of fliers you may need. Don’t hesitate to recruit other neighbors or take on another small stretch to help fill the gaps! Call if you need more or fewer fliers.
