Board Meeting Minutes – April 21, 2010 – 7:00 PM
Call to Order and Quorum — DeWitt Smith, Chairman
Review of Minutes from January 2010
Increase minority involvement in community council.
Use elementary school contacts?
Increase business involvement in community council.
Marilyn suggested business advertisements in newsletter
DeWitt suggested including the ‘Good Neighbor’ guide with the newsletter and as a cover sheet for the welcome packet. Should we include a Spanish version of the ‘Good Neighbor’ sheet for the welcome packets?
Devin still needs articles for the newsletter.
Include announcement for First Encampment Park celebration in newsletter.
Ron Heaps Park
DeWitt wrote a letter for Reagan signs suggesting that the parcels be divided and one of them be donated for the park. The western parcel would remain in Reagan’s hands for billboard use. No reply to the letter
Members suggested a memorial bus bench.
DeWitt will ask Reagan one more time and then it is the board’s recommendation to move on and look for a different site for the park.
Future Meeting Topics
Devin suggested a presentation by Grow Wild, native plant business on 2100 S and 500 E
Goals for 2010-2011
More involvement from minorities and businesses
More involvement on committees in general (Jim needs increased neighborhood involvement on the Emergency Preparedness committee).
The City’s new definition for community organizations may require us to reorganize to be officially recognized as such.
Next LWCC Board Meeting suggested for Wednesday, June 16, 2010
