Proposed EVNA Bylaws Amendment – September 2020

On August 11, 2020, the EVNA Board of Directors approved an amendment to the EVNA Bylaws, expanding the boundaries of the EVNA. Per our bylaws, all amendments must be approved by a vote of the membership.

At the EVNA's September 24, 2020 meeting, we plan to hold a membership vote on the following amendment. All additions are in red, and deletions are struck through.

ARTICLE II. BOUNDARIES

Section 1. Associational Boundaries
The boundaries of this Association for its sphere of action shall be the area within Church the corner of Dolores Street and Market Street on the East Side South along Dolores Street to 18th Street; 18th Street to Church Street; South along Church Street to 22nd Street; West along 22nd Street on the South Side to where it would hit Market Street; then along and Market Street (inclusive of both sides of the street) on the West Side and North Side to Douglass Street; North on Douglass Street to States Street; the entirety of States Street between Levant Street and Castro Street; the entirety of Flint Street and 16th Street West of Castro Street; South from 16th Street on Castro Street to Market Street; and East along Market Street to Church Dolores Street. The boundaries include properties along both sides of all streets within the EVNA boundaries.

All other bylaws will remain unchanged at this time.
