PRESENTATIONS: Laura Ceja, Place of Learning Coordinator and staff of the Police Activities League Mentor Program, shared about each program.

She noted that the Police Activities League is looking for adults to mentor 5th-8th graders in Brentwood for an hour once a week.

SCHEDULED MATTERS
2. ACTION ITEM: Discuss BANC’s interest in participating in the 2011 National Night Out event and if interested, select a subcommittee to work with Staff Liaison Keady on planning the event. Members that participated in the event last year recommended that the committee participate again this year as the event was a big success and a great way for the committee to share with various neighborhood groups about BANC’s existence, purpose and goals. Staff Liaison Keady noted that the event is scheduled for Tuesday, August 2, 2011 and that she will be coordinating the event for the Police Department. BANC’s role would be assisting with visiting all the neighborhoods participating in the event, determining criteria for judging and selecting the winning neighborhood, and possibly obtaining the prize for the winning neighborhood. Members present indicated they were interested in participating again this year and would like to discuss further at the May BANC meeting when more members were present. A motion and vote was not taken due to a lack of quorum.

INFORMATIONAL REPORTS FROM COMMITTEE MEMBERS, SUBCOMMITTEES AND
LIAISONS: None

STAFF COMMENTS: Staff Liaison Gary mentioned an opportunity for BANC members to assist the Parks and Recreation Department with a play day event scheduled for July 2011. She will present more details at the May meeting.
