Neighborhood Leader Spotlight

July 1, 2010

Neighborhood Leader Spotlight – Jim Haynie of People’s Voice Inc.

The Vintage Village Estates is located in Liberty Township off of Belmont Avenue, nearly in Vienna Township. Its location may be isolated, but there is a constant buzz of activity inside because of the work of its resident association, People’s Voice.

“We’ve been around for about two and a half years, but we’re picking it up now,” says Jim Haynie, President of the organization. “We’re determined now more than ever to see our values reflected in the park.”

Under Haynie’s leadership, the organization has taken big steps to make it accessible to and representative of the people of the park, which is made up of about 180 manufactured homes. They have filed their articles of incorporation with the State of Ohio; they have held meetings with residents and the owners of the park; they have expanded their communications with a brochure, a website and fliers advertising their weekly meetings, which take place each Saturday at 4 p.m. at Denny’s on Belmont Avenue. They are also planning community events to engage the many children of the community.

“We’d like to be seen in the neighborhood as a resource. We want residents to be able to access information about their rights as a tenant in a manufactured home park and we want to give our neighbors a safe space where they can voice their concerns with their neighborhood without fear,” said Haynie. “We also want to put on events that make us all proud to live where we do.”

Jim is no stranger to neighborhoods, he’s lived in a half a dozen communities and travelled extensively through his various careers and his service with the United States Navy, where he toured the Mediterranean and other parts of Europe. Upon returning to the States, he worked at Polaroid as the Corporate Function Manager in Boston. Jim moved to his current community 17 years ago, when his father became ill from Parkinson’s disease and past away. Since then, he’s set down roots here and, as a retiree, makes organizing People’s Voice his primary occupation.
At its heart, People’s Voice Inc.has a simple mission. According to Jim, “we just want people to talk and join together to be a great community.” He and his loyal group of leaders work tirelessly to that end.

New media up; update on survey day

March 26, 2010

I’ve posted new media links to the site. We had the news cover a couple of complaints that we made last year and it did result in some improvement in the state of the park. We’re still working on a lot more though! You can find them through the “Media” link on the right. Alternatively, you can follow this link here.

Today we folded a lot of brochures and surveys for Sunday at 1pm. If you’re interested in participating, come on out to 1 Louise Lane at 1pm. It will be a great time and the weather looks sunny and clear!

Neighborhood Survey

March 22, 2010

On Sunday, March 28th, PVI volunteers will be going door-to-door to do a survey of our residents’ issues. We would like to understand all of our neighbors’ concerns and the group decided that the best way to do that would be a quick survey for each of our neighbors. We will be meeting at 1pm at 1 Louise Lane, we will have a quick overview of canvassing/surveying, and then we will go out in groups of two.

If you are available, we’d love to have you join us as we go out and meet our neighbors.

If you cannot make it, be sure to check back later for the full results!
