Mastodon East Canyon 22X Neighborhood Council

February General Meeting

Our February general meeting is always a little bit special because we elect new steering committee members! 

Have you considered joining us on the steering committee? 

Now is the time! 

We are especially looking for folks who will bring their community passion with them and head up related projects. It would also be wonderful to have someone who can help with website posts and event promotion and administrative duties. It would be great to have someone join us who is detail oriented and disciplined to help keep everything on track. We're a nice group of folks who respect each other and care about building community for the benefit of all.

What else?

What's on the agenda? Lots!
  • The full scoop on the May 14 Cooperative Neighborhood Gathering at Dimond Park!
  • New name brainstorming! We'd like to have a name that is not 22x. We will brainstorm at the May 10 meeting and vote for a new name at the May 14 CoNee G! 
Here are some possibilities:
    • Canyon, for Dimond Canyon
    • Greater Dimond, because we are more than just the Dimond
    • Sequoia, for our neighborhood elementary school
    • Sausal Creek, for Sausal Creek
    • Willow Forest, for the trees that once lined Sausal Creek
    • The perfect name that you bring to the brainstorm...or...
    • 22x, if we are just not ready for change
Here is a map of our neighborhood:

  • Oakland General Plan Update from city planner, Ruslan Filipau.
  • Introduction to Oakland's Neighborhood Law Corps by city attorney Cara Reichard.
  • Block organizing, block reporting, and communication about crime and other topics
You make it great just by showing up. See you there!
