Our next meeting is, Tuesday, October 10th
Watrous South usually meets at Christ the King Church in the Parish Hall.
Christ the King is located at 5711 SW 9th Street. Details about the meeting are normally mailed
out 2 weeks ahead of time.
Start Time: 6:30pm
The October meeting is our Annual Neighborhood Meeting. Each year, Board members are nominated, elected or re-elected to the Board. Boar Members service a one-year term so each year all positions are up for elections. If you would like to be considered for the Watrous South Board of Directors, please submit your request to our email: WatrousSouth@gmail.com, or contact any of the current Board Members. We will respond to all requests. All nominations must be received by October 1, 2023 to be printed on the ballot. Write-in's are permitted on all ballots for all positions. Only members in good standing may vote, which means you must have your dues for the year paid before or on the meeting date.
If you are wondering if your dues are paid, please see the "members" tab.
Watrous South will vote on potential boundary expansion at the October 10th meeting.
At a previous meeting, members of Watrous South Neighborhood Association voted to approve expansion of our current boundaries. However a vote of those in the proposed neighborhood will need to vote as well at this meeting.
The expansion will still encompass the area between SW9th and Fleur Drive (East and West) but will now include the area from Army Post Road to County Line Road.
Proposed full boundaries would be:
North - Watrous Avenue
South - County Line Road
East - SW 9th Street
West - Fleur Drive
All resident of the proposed "new" area will be invited to attend our general meeting on October 10th. The city will be sending out a post card to each address in that proposed expansion area explaining the project. There will be a vote of those living in the proposed area in attendance at the October meeting to evaluate interest. If the majority of votes are in favor of the expansion, it will be approved. The City of Des Moines has already accepted the request which now lies with the residents in the proposed area to determine this formally.
