Bustleton Civic to discuss zoning

Mem­bers of the Great­er Bustleton Civic League will dis­cuss neigh­bor­hood zon­ing is­sues and vote on bylaws changes when they meet at 7:30 p.m. on Wed­nes­day, Nov. 16, at Temple Beth Ami, 9201 Old Bustleton Ave.

One of the changes that will be voted on is ad­just­ing the league’s mem­ber­ship year and fisc­al year to run con­cur­rently from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31. An­oth­er is word­ing de­scrib­ing the league’s goals.

The third is a change in who is eli­gible to vote. Cur­rently, Bustleton res­id­ents can join the or­gan­iz­a­tion, pay dues and vote, all in the same night. The change, if ap­proved, would lim­it vot­ing eli­gib­il­ity to those who were paid mem­bers as of the pre­vi­ous meet­ing.

The civic league’s ses­sions usu­ally are con­duc­ted on the fourth Wed­nes­day of the month, but the Novem­ber date is earli­er be­cause the fourth Wed­nes­day is the day be­fore Thanks­giv­ing.

Sim­il­arly, the Decem­ber meet­ing will be Wed­nes­day, Dec. 14, be­cause the third Wed­nes­day falls dur­ing Ha­nukkah and the fourth week falls in the week between Christ­mas and New Year’s Day.

John McK­eever, the league’s pres­id­ent, said the Janu­ary ses­sion will be held on the first floor of the new build­ing of the Amer­ic­an Her­it­age Fed­er­al Cred­it Uni­on on Red Li­on Road. The league pre­vi­ously had met at Amer­ic­an Her­it­age but had to move its ses­sions to Temple Beth Ami more than a year ago when renov­a­tions star­ted at the cred­it uni­on.

The league’s 2012 meet­ing sched­ule un­til mem­bers break for sum­mer is: Jan. 25, Feb. 22, March 21, April 25, May 23 and June 20. ••
