Welcome to Rountree!

Rountree is a thriving neighborhood of historic charm and diversity, conveniently located in the heart of our revitalizing center-city. We are home to college students from nearby Missouri State University and a variety of families young and old. In Rountree, you're a quick bike ride away from professional baseball, performing arts, and a host of unique restaurants and other offerings unmatched in the city. The Rountree neighborhood consists of more than 1,000 households bordered by Glenstone Avenue (east), Catalpa Street (south), National Avenue (west) and Cherry Street (north). At the heart of our neighborhood is Rountree Elementary School, which opened in 1917, and is today the site of a unique International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program. The Rountree Neighborhood Association (RNA) was founded to preserve and promote quality of life for all its residents. We are among only three neighborhoods in Springfield with an Urban Conservation District (UCD). Rountree's UCD was approved by Springfield City Council in 1985 to allow the neighborhood to identify and solve problems associated with trash, noise, safety and residential overcrowding. There's something for everyone in Rountree.

March 18, 2014 Board Meeting

The meeting was called to order at Rountree Elementary by Chairman Matt Stevens.

Chairman Matt Stevens presented an agenda for the meeting. The minutes from the February membership meeting were read. Nancy Evans moved that the minutes be approved as read. The motion was seconded by Connie Schneider and the minutes were approved.

Treasurer Sara Hollis was not present at the meeting to provide a treasurer’s report. After a review of the by-laws, the board agreed that the by-laws need to be updated to authorize the Board to open bank accounts and to designate who the two signatures on the account will be (chairman and treasurer). The Board discussed and agreed that the books should be audited prior to them being turned over to Connie Schneider.

The neighborhood clean-up is April 12, 2014 from 8 am to 1 pm. The City will print and mail flyers for the clean-up event. We need to make sure to have membership forms at the clean-up in order to sign up new members..

Katie Claxton discussed the possibility of having a neighborhood wide sale prior to the clean-up and checked into pricing for signs.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:20 pm.
