The President’s Message

Dear fellow Myers Park homeowners,

I am the current President of the Myers Park Homeowners Association (MPHA).  It is a privilege to represent our neighborhood and our members. I am a native Charlottean and grew up in Myers Park.  My wife Kristin, son Preston (9) and I had the great opportunity to purchase a house on Sterling Road.  We love our neighbors and neighborhood.

I joined the MPHA Board several years ago.  Before becoming Board president I worked on many technology initiatives and helped reinstate the Myers Park 4thof July parade.  That was a great day.  We had 300 people at last year’s parade and we are looking to continue and enhance it this year.

Most recently, in collaboration with the Charlotte City Arborist and other third parties we were able to plant 45 Willow Oak trees throughout Myers Park.  This has been an ongoing project, and through persistence and hard work we were able to make it happen.  The money from member donations to the MPHA Tree Fund was well spent.  We now have a great relationship with the City Arborist, and I encourage you to contribute to the MPHA Tree Fund so that we can continue this replanting program.  Our goal is to maintain the historic John Nolen tree plan by replacing as much of our aging tree canopy as possible with compatible young trees.  As one of the principal features of Myers Park, preserving the tree plan is imperative if we are to maintain the character of the neighborhood.

As president, I have created a strong committee structure, which is working well.  The committees consist of Finance, Legal/Deed, Trees, Communications/Website, Membership, and Event Coordination/Preservation Award.  The chairmen and committee members should be commended on their work and advancement of the MPHA.  In the coming months our Nominating Committee will start looking to fill Executive and Board member positions.  I encourage you to consider expanding your involvement in MPHA. We especially need support in the IT/Website and Legal/Deed committees, but welcome involvement wherever your interest may lie.  I hope you strongly consider it.  If you have questions or interest please contact me at info@mpha.com.

Your president,

John N. Beard, Jr.
