Southampton Neighborhood Association membership meetings (known as General Meetings) are held every other month. The meeting date is determined by the SNA by-laws that state Regular meetings of the Association shall be held on the second (2nd) Wednesday of each odd numbered month. Events will contain the dates for these meetings with additional details.
The meetings are open to the public but only members vote on matters before the Association. These matters can include supporting local business licenses and business changes--like excise licensing for liquor sales or expansion of businesses. The Association also is involved in shaping local policies, in resolving disputes, and generally making a more pleasant neighborhood in which to work and to live and to play. Elected City officials and staff make presentations at these meetings in the areas of legislative changes, town hall meetings on various topics (a recent one was held on short-term rentals), crime reports and tips from the Police Department, recycling tips and many more. Board resolutions and actions are submitted to the members who vote to support or oppose. Committee reports are made. Minutes are read and approved.
