Charles Village Safety Team

Apparently, they had their two community meetings regarding the CVCBD Safety Team and its possible future changes. Buz has learned that these meetings were not at all well-attended: 10 folks at one and 7 at the other. Apparently, the board is now soliciting community input via email.

Buz has lots of thoughts on the CVCBD; I spent 2, almost 3 years managing their Safety and Sanitation teams. It is difficult to make decisions on such a complex issue, without sophisticated input--and cannot be done in a method resembling Athenian democracy.

It is not clear at all on what the Benefits District will do now that it has divested itself of housing and economic development programs, and is attempting to concentrate on Safety and Sanitation.

We'll keep our eyes peeled on how this all turns out.
