At a sparsely attended meeting Monday night, members of the Chester Square Area Neighborhood Association looked at ways to better involve the community and raise money for projects and park upkeep.
Residents discussed changing their meeting schedule from monthly schedule to quarterly schedule at the meeting held in the Harriet Tubman Building on Columbus Avenue in the South End.
Along with possibly holding fewer meetings, the group is also looking for a new president.
Ben Garvin, the former president, had to step down because of his increasing involvement in his children’s school.
Dave Gacioch, the vice president of CSANA will be interim president until a new one is elected sometime in December.
Even with some changes ahead of them, CSANA members also tackled the challenge of raising funds to maintain local parks in the neighborhood.
Partnering with the Parish Café on Massachusetts Avenue, the group will be holding a brunch catered by the café mid-November.
Residents who are interested in joining the CSANA or attending their brunch can contact the group through their website.
