OUR COMMITTEES

ENA Committees are dedicated to improving Eastwood living and are made up of individuals who focus on specific projects.   All  ENA members and Eastwood residents are encouraged to join and participate in any committee of interest.

ENA’s support committees have the same goal: to increase appreciation and support of the neighborhood and the neighborhood association.

The Marketing Committee is responsible for raising awareness about ENA and life in Eastwood. Projects include: preparing the quarterly Eastwood Neighbor; updating the website; and developing new ideas to keep residents informed about their neighborhood association and other community events.

ENA’s action committees were formed based on neighbor’s input and dreams for their neighborhood. Currently, we have the following working groups, with the potential to form any number of new committees, based on interest and participation.

Green Thumb Committee

Chair: Annelise Bucci   463-4794

The Green Thumb Committee maintains several planting sites throughout Eastwood and most of the flower pots that line James Street throughout the summer. Plans for early spring preparations begin in January. Tending the garden sites extends through the summer.

The annual bulb give-away “Eastwood in Bloom” has become an October tradition.

History & Archives Committee

Chair: [Position open]

History & Archives Committee collects chronological information to preserve Eastwood’s rich past, plus keeps an account of current ENA events for the next generation of Eastwoodites to enjoy. The committee contributes a column to each Eastwood Neighbor – a glimpse of days gone by.

Memorial Committee

Chair: Dan Rogers  383-2541

The Memorial Committee seeks ways to honor special Eastwood residents.  Currently, an initiative is underway to commemorate the late great Joseph Mazella by renovating the basketball court at Eastwood Heights (corner of Avon and Mosley) and re-naming it after him.  To assist with a donation, please see the Donations page.

Residential Property Conservation Committee
