Executive Board Meeting minutes
September 10, 2018
Janet—Treasury report: Diane added that ArtWalk fund would grow once the grant was completed and there should be a surplus for next year.
Follow up—Frink Park request for tree removal. Janet has not rec’d the requested documentation.
Janice—It does not look at though anyone reported the Nuisance property 1126 29th Ave. S to EastPAC yet.
John—Parks: the mowing is still an issue.
Marina—Marine Mgmt. has agreed to speak at the November meeting. John wanted to create a list of questions. It was felt that we needed someone from the city to speak about the breakwater as Marine Mgmt. says they are waiting for that to be completed before beginning any work. We need to involve current tenants of the marina as well. John to check with Dragon Boat folks.
Tracy—LCC earthquake preparedness meeting: Tracy says not enough time to pull something together by Oct meeting. She will connect with Madrona folks and collaborate on a spring program that shows how to prepare. Madrona doing the same awareness program that we did last November.
Diane—ArtWalk recap: Voters’ reg. table ecstatic about their success. Many new residents this summer; more turnover in the neighborhood than usual. Nice feedback on music, especially the Brazilian jazz.
Newsletter deadline: Sept. 17
October Meeting—many ideas discussed and many assignments. Tracy to contact Bob Hasagawa about the public bank. Janice to go to MOHAI and speak to librarian about old pictures of Leschi. Is there anyone there who could do a talk? John to talk to Olmsted group about presenting a history of the Olmsteds and our parks. Diane to speak to NWAAM about the CD program they are doing at the Senior Center on the 19th; any options for bringing it to our meeting in Oct.?
Monthly programs for the rest of the year will be added to the October agenda per Janice’s request.
CANDC meetings—info not coming back to LCC. Karen Ko asked for list of officers from each council in May, but this was not communicated. Should be on letterhead. ArtWalk date given was wrong (9th give instead of 8th)
Tracy—Upzoning: she is still concerned and feels people are not aware of the plan to upzone. Trevor said there had been numerous Town Halls, including one at Langston Hughes. Diane asked if Trevor had enough info to write something for the October newsletter. Tracy offered to write it if she could get the facts.
Diane—Leschi Diary: John found an email from Sharon Vaughn that she had found a library to digitize the book. He also had a phone number for her. Diane called and left a message but no response yet.
