Below is the bio of Reginald "Kiyi" Ballard, the name being presented for consideration for the Rosedale Recreation Center
************* 1st UPDATE *************
Motion: Ms. Mack moved/Ms. Beatty seconded a motion by Ms. Mack: As the re-elected ANC Commissioner of the Ward 6A07 Rosedale Community, I would like to make a motion that the current name of the Rosedale Community Center remain as it is. The current name has a rich historical and geographical significance to the neighbors of Rosedale. In addition, the name change is being advocated by people outside the Rosedale community, and without first notifying the ANC 6A07 Commissioner.
Parties who are interested in proposing a change in the name of the Rosedale Community Center must formally bring their intent before the ANC 6A07 Commissioner. The Single Member District ANC Commissioner of 6A 07 will be given sufficient time to allow the Rosedale Community to respond to the matter at hand. In answer to a question, Ms. Mack said she does not know the name they want to use. Ms. Beatty suggested that the ANC might want to send a letter of support just saying that the ANC should have input. Ms. Mack said she would accept that addition as a friendly amendment. The motion passed without objection.
I will also be holding my (SMD) Single Member District community meeting soon to invite the Rosedale Community to discuss this renaming of the Rosedale Recreation Center and other Concern/Issues that are impacting our community.
Please stay tune for these updates!
Gladys Ann Mack/ANC 6A 07
