To form the Scenic Shores Neighborhood Association, a set of bylaws needs to be adopted. The bylaws are the rules of the organization. It defines the purpose of the organization and the rules for getting things done. Bylaws are extremely important since they give an organization structure and integrity. Anyone who has much experience with social organizations knows that an organization that doesn't have or doesn't follow its bylaws will simply degenerate into mob rule.
We want everyone in the neighborhood to present their concerns and suggestions about the bylaws. To help establish neighborhood associations, the City of Fort Worth provides a sample set of bylaws. Please view the sample bylaws and post your comments below (or on the sample bylaws page). As suggestions roll in, we will form an edited version of the bylaws and post them here as well. At the October 21st election, we will vote to adopt the edited set of bylaws. We will make every effort to integrate all good ideas into the document. If contentious issues arise, we will vote to either adopt or reject those issues individually.
I encourage everyone who has an interest in the association to participate.
