Dear WISPPA members,
Due to the Coronavirus, we are living through an unprecedented time with so much happening & changing on a daily basis. The WISPPA board has decided to cancel our April 4th meeting. Although our meetings are under the 50 people recommendation, a number of us in WISPPA are over 60 and we believe we should not take any chances.
Our membership is very informed and on top of things, but in case you have missed some information, below are some updates:
  • Effective Monday, March 16, all city facilities will be temporarily closed to members of the public except for public meetings of the City Council, the Cultural Heritage Commission, Planning Commission and Design Review Board, which will continue to meet to ensure the approval of projects move forward as required by law. See City email below for more information
  • In addition, most of the upcoming events listed in our newsletter have been cancelled or postponed. Go to our website events page to see the most recent changes.
  • Attached is a summary of important information regarding the Conoravirus (shared by member Ellen Daigle).
We hope you and your families stay safe and healthy.
Betty Emirhanian
WISPPA President
