Come Tell Mike Bonin You Care About Kentwood

Saturday is our Kentwood Home Guardians Annual Member Meeting and Councilman Mike Bonin is our Guest Speaker. This is your chance to meet Mike in a small group setting when he is present to talk to us specifically about our local quality of life in Kentwood.

Mike has been asked to specifically address Kentwood crime, multi-family development density (esp. the Grinder project), ADUs, the old Westchester fire station and our upcoming Community Plan update.

This is your chance to meet Mike and share your concerns! Feel shy? Just showing up lets him know that we are an engaged community.

The meeting starts at 1 pm at the Westchester Firestation in the Community Room. You can find the agenda at here. Come at 12:30 if you’d like to join us for a light lunch, but please RSVP for food at https://www.facebook.com/events/1805751176135409/ (click “going”) or by emailing the KHG office at info@kentwoodhomeguardians.com.

Please Note: Parking at the fire station is restricted to the street in front of the station and the dirt lot just south of the station. Please do not park in the fire station parking lot, including the spots near the community room. That area is reserved for firefighters on duty. You can access the dirt lot and street parking from Westchester Parkway. You can also park on the streets outside the grounds and walk in from the north side.

Make Your Vote Count!

Voting for open seats on our Board of Directors is off to a rousing start, with mailed ballots starting to roll in!

We are seeing many mailed ballots without return addresses and signatures. Unfortunately, those ballots do not comply with the stated instructions and our election rules, and cannot be counted.

We want to be able to count your vote! Please make sure that you follow the instructions when mailing in your ballot. The instructions are printed on both the ballot and a separate insert in the envelope we mailed to you.

If you think you may have sent us a ballot that can’t be counted (or if you’re not sure), you can still vote by coming to our Annual Meeting. When you check in, ask if we have a validated ballot from you. If not, you can vote in person. If we do, have some lunch and enjoy our speaker!

Information about our Annual Meeting on Saturday, July 21st, and our speaker can be found here.

To help us with headcount and food, please RSVP on our Facebook event page or by emailing info@kentwoodhomeguardians.com.
