As of January 1, 2019, we are finalizing our neighborhood Block Captains.  There are still a few blocks that need captains. Referring to the map below, captains are needed for blocks B, K, H, L, N, P, U, V, X, 4, and 8. If interested, please contact Rosalind Woodward at woodwardrosalind@gmail.com

Scroll down for the current Vilas Block Captain Directory to find your block’s contact person.

block captain duties

·  To distribute flyers for neighborhood events.

·  To be a “resource person” and liaison to the Board and the neighborhood block.

·  Occasionally the neighborhood directory is updated (there is one in the works now). Phone numbers, addresses and emails might need to be checked. To have someone familiar with a block would be helpful to the VNA Board.

·  To alert neighbors and disseminate information from the Board to the neighborhood in a more inclusive way. At the moment it is “hit or miss”. Not everyone attends Neighborhood meetings, or uses the Yahoo Group or Next Door web sites.

·  Welcome packages are now available to inform others of the presence of the Neighborhood Association and can be given to new residents.

·  Madison Police Dept. has an initiative called the “Good Neighbor Project”. Data shows crime prevention is most successful when people know who their neighbors are, foster open communication and contact. Block  captains can facilitate these connections as needed.
