YOUR CORDATA NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION IS WORKING HARD FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Since our September meeting the CNA's Board of directors has met on two occassions establishing a new Ad Hoc Committee, called "The Cordata Neighborhood Oversight Committee." This committe is chaired by Kate McDonald. It was formed as an oversight committee to oversee activites planned and approved by the City of Bellingham and to assure that the Cordata neighborhood is heard in these matters that affect it and our quality of life, in addition to any other matters of importance to our neighborhood. Already, Kate has established meetings and dialogue with many of the city leaders, and is planning on meeting with the two mayoral candidates and setting up dialogue with them. This is yet another example of your neighborhood association working for all of us and assuring our voices will be heard. Watch this newletter and also on our Cordata Neighborhood Association's Facebook Page for future announcements.

A REPORT ON THE CORDATA COMMUNITY GARDEN
As Fall begins, the Gardening season is at its end. However, garden activity and planning hasn't stopped. One thing that is in the works is the addition of 7 more garden plots for next year's gardening season. More information will be forthcoming in this newsletter and our Facebook Page. We had a very successful garden season this year and a substantial amount of produce was donated to the food bank.
