-a) Discussion: ​ She reports a new policy, that every new non-CHEA member has to pay the $50 membership fee, even if they belong to a non-CHEA NASCO co-op. She learned about a pair of co-ops in Buffalo, NY, that had conflicts between the two and appointed outreach representatives to meet regularly, set up frequent events for the two. This would carry one labor hour per week. Richard feels this could be incorporated into the current outreach coordinator position. Meg would like our current outreach coordinator to be more involved with neighborhood and intra-house activities and not add Sasona. There is a CHEA Board member who has been assigned this task already, and is trying to learn more about the cultures. The new NASCO board had to make a decision about where to expand next; financing for Lawrence, Kansas, is uncertain but the Ohio property is starting up. Poor code compliance and chronic rent non-payment of a Santa Cruz co-op is jeopardizing financing for other NASCO properties.+a) Discussion: She reports a new policy, that every new non-CHEA member has to pay the $50 membership fee, even if they belong to a non-CHEA NASCO co-op.

 Ryan: Is planning an affordable housing campaign. Is organizing with others in our council district. Corey and Hannah are also participating. The general strategy is to emphasize bikeability and affordability with developers, which might become a city council campaign. Our rent (without utilities and food) = $356 per bedroom. The proposed development is 75 acfres at 45th St and Bull Creek, to include mixed use housing, retail, and parkland. We can participate on Facebook, "​Friends of the Grove,"​ and at meetings. There are two other smaller properties at Justin and Burnet and at Justin by the Metro station/​railroad tracks. City planners will be looking for input from this area on Burnet Rd development. Ryan: Is planning an affordable housing campaign. Is organizing with others in our council district.
