Line 1: Line 1:
-====== August 5, 2013 ====== 
  
-Attendees: 
-Ryan, Hannah, Bridget, Victor, Gatlin, Sarah, Sam, Mike, McAllen 
- 
-===== Discussion of suggestion to partner with Rosewood ===== 
- 
-NASCO objections 
- 
-Reset clock, would lose opportunity for Tillery property 
- 
-Rosewood very young 
- 
-Rosewood has zoning issues 
- 
-===== Discussion of outreach: *(fostered by McAllen) ===== 
- 
-Encino Circle: discuss with those neighbors (surrounds property) 
- 
-Older minorities, had bad experience with traffic and noise in the past 
- 
-We need to communicate that we won't be a noise and traffic probem 
- 
-We will not be trafficing drugs, and will do our part to report those 
-things (there'​s been a problem in the past) 
- 
-Parking: not expected to be a problem. We need to make a layout of the 
-structures on the property that might produce noise, and site them properly. 
- 
-Hannah: Maybe a letter or brochure to give to the neighbors, also to the 
-Neighborhood Association (NA) meeting. 
- 
-Sam: We should go door to door, I could help. Face to face is most 
-effective. 
- 
-Victor: We should see if there'​s a church in the neighborhood;​ I'm willing 
-to go there and talk to the pastor. 
- 
-McAllen: We should phrase our agenda in terms of "what do YOU want to see 
-happen in the neighborhood?"​ I will get on the NA's listserve. Going to the 
-NA meeting on Tuesday, 8/14. Diversity would be good / it's part of our 
-plan. 
- 
-Hannah: Do we want to start outreach now, or one we have a contract with 
-Right of Refusal signed? 
- 
-McAllen: Yes, start now, but we need to delegate folks to do that. 
- 
-Hannah: I could make a brochure or letter; others could help. 
- 
-McAllen: I need to contact Scott Way (owner) and get a list of neighbors, 
-and ideas on how to word things . Then I'd like to start talking to the 
-neighbors. 
- 
-Straw Poll on whether to start talking to neighbors now rather than after a 
-CHEA vote on buying the house: mostly in favor. 
- 
-McAllen: I'll propose things to put on the flyer. Maybe folks can review by 
-midweek, and Hannah can produce brochures before Saturday. 
- 
-Hannah: Should bring a gift. NOT pot brownies. Consumables might create a 
-trust issue. 
- 
-McAllen: I'll call Scott and see if I can get their numbers and maybe make 
-an appointment. 
- 
-Hannah: The NA meeting. What are you guys going to say there? 
- 
-Donny: We need to plan a few cogent points, then have contact info for 
-questions. 
- 
-===== Food Program ===== 
- 
-McAllen: considering a scheme where you can opt in or opt out of the 
-communal meal program. Have people chip in a few bucks if they want an 
-occasional dinner. 
- 
-Gatlin: We can have people buy into the food program, but not prepared 
-food, to keep the city happy. 
- 
-Hannah: Does it make sense for us to have a communal meal when so many miss 
-it even at Sasona? 
- 
-Gatlin: People at 21st are paying for access to the fridge and the food. 
-They miss a lot of meals, but it still works fine. Part of living in the 
-community is buying in on the food. 
- 
-Hannah: Pearl had a better "save plate" system than Sasona. The 
-responsibility at Sasona is for a person who wants a save plate. That could 
-be done better. 
- 
-Mike: How would only a few people buying in make stuff more expensive? You 
-can buy in bulk, and only those who use it will be paying for it. There can 
-be a honor system bucket as well. 
- 
-Donny: We don't have to decide this now. We could just say "​everyone buys 
-in " to start, then the house can decide to add an opt-out option later. 
- 
-McAllen: I wanted to address this due to zoning. However, we're not sure we 
-need to decide it now. 
- 
-Hannah: Daniel was about 80% sure that the zoning would be good for 
-communal meals given this architecture,​ but McAllen and Daniel will get 
-that worked out at the Development Assistance Center this week. 
- 
-Sam: There'​s almost a sort of evolution that happens to make the property 
-more accommodating to the members. In other words, we don't have to have 
-everything perfect before we move in. We can let it happen naturally over 
-the first 5 years. 
- 
-===== *Action Items ===== 
- 
------------------ 
- 
-==== McAllen: ==== 
- 
-1) Contact Scott. Tell neighbors we're coming, and see if he knows any 
-schedules or if we need to make an appointment. Ask if there'​s a church 
-that some one or more go to. 
- 
-2) Set up a specific time for the visits. 
- 
-3) Send out list of thoughts and points by end Sunday. 
- 
-4) Have a rough draft of a flyer ready for the group to review by 
-Wednesday, to be ready for visits or for the NA meeting. 
- 
-==== Hannah: ==== 
- 
----------- 
- 
-1) Create actual brochures when they are needed to meet with neighbors or 
-the NA. 
- 
-==== Donny ==== 
- 
--------- 
- 
-1) Search for churches nearby ; hold off until hear from McAllen.
