HISTORIC SHERWOOD FOREST
We Need Your Help
a lot of work to do in addressing the vacant home
problem in Sherwood Forest. We are a “can do” community
and are bound to succeed IF each of us does his or her
part. Our Strategic Action Plan for Unoccupied Homes in
Sherwood Forest requires the work of dedicated
volunteers. Listed below are some of the jobs that need
to be filled. Please look at this list and then sign up
for at least one of these projects. Please fill out the
form below. Together we can, and will, maintain
our beautiful community.
Vacant Home Committee: The Board of Directors
of the Sherwood Forest Association is forming a new
Vacant Home Committee. We need several
residents to serve on this committee.
Home Monitors: A home monitor is a neighbor who
is assigned to watch a vacant home near his or her
home and try to keep the home from looking vacant.
This may include mowing and raking the law,
shoveling snow, picking up papers and debris or
notifying the Chief Monitor that a contractor is
needed to do some of these tasks. If you have a
vacant home on your block, please volunteer to be a
Chief Monitor: The chief monitor will
coordinate the work of home monitors, take their
reports on the status of vacant homes and arrange
for maintenance work as needed.
Home Maintenance Group: We need to form a group
of residents who are handy with tools to do minor
repairs to the exteriors of vacant homes.
Public Relations and Marketing: Just as
important as maintaining our homes is seeing them
reoccupied. We need a group of residents with
skills in these areas to promote our community and
help attract potential buyers.
Lawyers: We need a small group of lawyers to
deal with the occasional problems that arise
concerning banks, mortgage companies, realtors,
unauthorized occupancies, etc.
you would like to volunteer in an area unrelated to
vacant homes, consider the following:
Block Captains: We are
creating a network of block captains for every block
in Sherwood Forest.
and Greet: Hold a neighborhood social
gathering in your home. If you will provide the
place, your neighbors will do the rest. We would
like to have a Meet and Greet sometime this spring.
Board of Directors:
To serve on the board, you must be willing to chair
one of our standing committees and be available to
attend a meeting on the second Monday of each month
