  1. Financial Review—Jeremy submitted the financial statements and the board members discussed.

 

  1. Jeremy pointed out that the fiscal year ends September 30.  Members are considering whether to add another dumpster day for fall.

 

  1. Academie Lafayette Parking Sign Update—the city has installed a “no parking, 7-9 a.m. and 3-5 p.m. M-F” sign on 69th Street.  This is in effect between Cherry and Oak on the north side.

 

  1. The Annual Meeting Plan—meeting is set for November 10.  Christina has reserved the Legacy Center (lower level) at St. Peter’s.  It was decided on Waldo pizza again, along with other side items because the expense is significantly less than previous vendors. Board members are considering topics for the annual meeting and whether to bring in a speaker this year.  A facilitated and guided discussion of residents’ concerns may be the program.

 

  1. Island Maintenance/Shrub Planting Update—Clayton mentioned that the landscape company is installing the new shrubbery (boxwoods) in September.

 

  1. Flea Market —one business owner and residents have wondered about the open-air market that had been going on just east of Oak on 63rd.  Clayton has called the city (311) and officials are checking into it.  He will provide an update in September.

 

  1. Newsletter—the second issue of “The Acorn” arrived in mailboxes on August 19.  Kudos to Jon and Sean for such excellent work, and thanks to Clayton for the two ads in the Acorn purchased by business owners in the neighborhood.

In attendance: Clayton Snodgrass, Christina Wright, Aaron Wright, Bill Blanck, Patty Feuerborn
 
1) Financial Review—Jeremy submitted the financial statements to Clayton because Jeremy was on vacation.  Clayton sent to all board members.
 
 2) AT&T Box, 622 E 65 box blocks his view of traffic as he is backing out of his driveway on to Holmes.  The owner has hired an attorney to represent him.  Because the box is the property of AT&T and is in the utility right-of-way, the owner and his attorney will work with the city and AT&T for resolution. Clayton mentioned that a similar situation happened in Armour Hills before the box went in. He offered to contact the city as well to see if he could get information. Board members discussed inviting John Sharp, our city councilman, to a meeting in the future.
 
 3) Fall Events—the annual meeting will happen on November 10.  Christina will check with St. Peter’s to reserve a meeting room.  Members discussed the possibility of another fall event at Holmes Park but have not picked a date.
 
 4) Newsletter Topic Review—Clayton mentioned that Jon Goodman is working on the next issue and has also sold two ads to defray costs.  Small business owners who live in or near the neighborhood bought the ads.
 
 5) Island Maintenance Update—Clayton mentioned that the landscape company is maintaining and watering the islands, and is installing the new shrubbery in the fall.  He mentioned that is the appropriate time for installation.
