CBNC is officially an RCO!

Posted on June 10, 2014 at 12:20 AM Comments comments (0)

The Purpose of a Registered Community Organization (RCO)

 A primary function of a City of Philadelphia RCO, is to notify members of the nearest community about proposed developmental or other projects where a “variance” has been requested.  A “variance” is defined as an exception to a current variance status.  If a variance is approved/granted, and for whatever reason/s the premises are left vacant for 3 years, the variance status will revert back to the original status prior to the approved change.


The role of the CBNC’s RCO Committee is to:


(1) Provide information to the surrounding community about requested variance changes, by way of distributing flyers and during community meetings.  Whenever possible, regular Community and Variance Notification Meetings will be held within the convenience of CBNC’s boundaries so that meetings are easily accessible.  If or when there are no available locations within CBNC boundaries, a location will be sought closest to the outside of CBNC’s boundaries.


(2) Schedule “Variance Notification Meetings” for the community to meet and discuss the potential impact of the proposed variance changes.  Notice of the Variance Notification Meetings will be distributed at least 5 days prior to the meeting.



Voting is only done by community members located within the immediate area who could be directly impacted by the proposed variance changes.  Individuals who are CBNC RCO Committee Members, CBNC regular Board Members or associated Attorneys, are ineligible to vote for support or non-support for a variance variance and therefore must leave the room when a vote is being cast so that the vote is not unduly influenced in any way.  If they choose to cast their personal vote, they may, however, step-down from their Committee, Board or legal positions, and cast their vote as a homeowner, business owner or other pertinent party.


What happens during a Joint RCO Meeting?


When a vote has been conducted, each meeting must be documented indicating: 

(1) an established Agenda; (2) Minutes; (3) the number of those in attendance; and (4) the number of “Yes” and “No” votes, respectively

Attention CBNC Members


We at the CBNC would first like to thank you for being a member of the organization. We are proud of the many community successes achieved by our group, but in order for our organization to continue its growth, we need your help. Each member is being asked to volunteer a minimum of 20-24 hours per calendar year (only 2 hrs per month), so that our group can continue its important work. Please review the following list of our yearly programs that are in need of committee leaders and team members and let us know where you can help-out:




Math Tutoring Program                          Sept.-May                   Sat. 10am-2pm


Volunteer Clean-Up Program                   May-Oct                      Wed. 9am-3pm


Chess Team                                         Year Round              Sat. 10am-12pm

Bowling Team                                     Year Round               Sat. 10am-12pm


“Volunteerism” helps the CBNC in a variety of ways. Among those benefits, it helps the organization solve community problems, teaches your valuable skills to others, can make a difference in the lives of others and also looks good on your resume.


The CBNC provides a Certificate of Recognition to its volunteers, and when feasible, nutritious snacks during the time of their volunteer services.


Please confirm receipt of this letter and tell us on which program/s you are able to volunteer with the CBNC.


Thank You.

CBNC Election Procedures

Posted on October 11, 2012 at 11:15 PM Comments comments (0)


The Founder/President has the authority to appoint individuals to Officer positions as needed. Positions will be held for a period of one year, unless the individual is found to be unfit or resigns. After holding a position for one year, the body of members will take a vote as to whether or not an appointed individual should continue to serve for an additional one year term. All elections will be by closed ballots. Members must be present for their votes to count.

Individuals desiring to run for an Officer position, will also be presented to the body of members for consideration and then vote will be taken to determine who will be elected to serve in that position for the next one year term. Elections are held annually, on the last Wednesday in the month of January, weather permitting.

Due to the broad range of community activities in which the CBNC is involved, all Officers and Board Members must complete and submit a copy of the results to the CBNC Founder/President, for the following two clearances: (1) Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance and (2) Pennsylvania State Police Request For Criminal Record Check.
