Without commenting on the specifics of what was a closed door meeting of a private corporation, I would say the North Side Improvement League is very much at a crossroads.
The long-time civic club on Mill Street is in need of a hands-on board of directors and perhaps a return to weekly meetings. There needs to be a raison detre for the club.
If its just holding dinners and bingo to raise enough money to pay the bills so they can hold more dinners...That's a function best left to existing restaurants and banquet halls.
The club was built on a tenet of civic involvement....Everything from funding youth sports to hosting Friday night political discourse.
I went to their special meeting just to observe because this organization has a place in the city's history. They've got their work cut out for them.
