No reports from:
Membership: Heath McAlpine
Heath is concerned that the dues have been stagnant for many years. Dues are set in the organizations by-laws. He would like to change that so the Executive Board can set/change dues.
Agenda topic Housing and Development: Karin Manovich
Karin attended a Zoom meeting about the reorganization of the housing/code enforcement. There will be increased enforcement of COA (certificate of appropriateness). This must be obtained from the city before any outside work can be done. We need to educate new neighbors about the procedures for changes within the historic district. Karin tries to get the blue book containing all the rules to new owners when houses are sold.
The Neighborhood Reunion Block Party is scheduled for July 30th – see Karin to volunteer. There will be a post party for volunteers with beer and pizza on the boulevard.
