Meeting Summary:

Proceeding to agenda item #1 (Continue workshop planning), Don Genasci began the meeting with a short slide-show presentation showing samples of master planning documents from past students. The group proceeded to ask questions and ultimately offer suggestions on how to organize the Slabtown Community workshops. The group recommended that Workshops not exceed three hours. The most likely time for these Workshops will be Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 8:30.

Don Genasci and Fran Goldstein will meet before the next Slabtown Committee meeting on November 19 to refine plans for the Workshops, focusing primarily on Workshop #1. They will develop a proposed list of topic areas for organizing public input provided in the workshops. Ron Walters will solicit input from the Committee to develop a proposed Powerpoint presentation with which to open Workshop #1.

Note: If readers of this post have any suggestions for the presentation or workshops, please enter your comments below to share your ideas with the Committee and other visitors to this website.

Committee Member Brian Bramlett was ill and not able to attend the Novembe 5 meeting so the conversation about workshops was extended to use the time available from Agenda item #4 (progress report on background documents). Brian will provide an update at the November 19 meeting.

The Committee skipped Agenda item #2 (funding ideas) to discuss ideas for an outreach plan. The group agreed that aggressively outreach was necessary and desirable to encourage widespread neighborhood participation in the Community Workshops. John Bradley, Bill Welch, and Bette Schei volunteered to meet as a sub-committee group to develop a proposed plan to share at the next Committee meeting.

The Meeting closed with a short discussion of housekeeping matters. Committee members agreed to share their email addresses with other members for internal communication purposes. Future Committee meeting dates were set as follows:

– Thursday, November 19 – 5:30 to 7:00 pm.
– Thursday, December 3 – 5:30 to 7:00 pm.
– Thursday, December 17 – 5:30 to 7:00 pm.

The meeting location for all three Committee meetings is in the Legacy Good Sam Northrup Building first floor conference room at 2282 NW Northrup Street, near the corner of NW 23rd Avenue.
