Mid City West
Increase stakeholder active participation in Mid City West.
Although Mid City West fell somewhat short of our numerical goals for the 2016 election, nevertheless there was an increase in the number of candidates, competitive seats, and voters from 2014 to the 2016 election. Both candidate recruitment and voter turnout have been trending upward in the last two elections. In addition, Mid City West has successfully used stakeholder membership on committees as a tool for getting stakeholders involved. Stakeholder committee members filled board vacancies and ran successfully for the council in our elections. In addition, a number of candidates who ran but were not elected were brought into the fold as stakeholder committee members.
Increase impact of Mid City West on government responsiveness and public policy making.
The Metro board approved $2.3 million for Mid City West’s neighborhood greenway plan, a first for a neighborhood council. The Mendel and Meyer Courtyard Apartments on Flores Street and the Edinburgh Bungalow Court received Historic Cultural Monument status in part due to action and advocacy by the Mid City West board. Mid City West also submitted a community impact statement recommending neighborhood council speaking time at city council meetings (Council files 15-0389 and 15-0524). That recommendation was later adopted by the city council.
Increase the physical presence of Mid City West in the community through outreach events and community improvement projects.
Mid City West hosted, co-hosted, or participated in 19 different events over the course of the fiscal year. In particular, we hosted more elections-related events in 2016 than in 2014. During the 2016 election season we held a Candidate 101 event, a candidate/stakeholder mixer, and a candidate forum, and hosted a table at Pan Pacific Park on Election Day as well. Other events during election season including the education town hall and the homeless count also offered opportunities for election outreach.
Expand and improve stakeholder outreach through electronic media.
Substantial investment in the facebook page led to more than doubling of our followers from 664 to 1421. Also, the council’s decision to adopt online voting helped us greatly expand our email list. The newsletter project continued with issues released most months. Mid City West entered into a contract for an updated website, which is forthcoming.
Create a Mid City West brand.
The Communications and Outreach committee has begun the process of creating a new logo, but the project was not completed in FY 2015-16.

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quick Base often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quick Base finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quick Base needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:

  • If you want to create three separate Acme records (Acme-New York, Acme-Dallas and Acme-Portland) click the Conform link at the top of the column.
  • If the dissimilar entries are mistakes (say Acme only has one office in New York and the other locations are data-entry errors) go back into your table and correct the inconsistencies—in this case, changing all locations to New York. Then try the conversion again.
