Executive Director Report
Bruce highlighted items in his latest report (attached).
Bruce showed the new logo to be used for all occasions. Candi suggested to get permanent board member tags with this logo.
Repair and maintenance schedule is pretty well on track including painting and roof repair.
Bruce handed out a draft statement about the lawn parking. We need to get more control over parking and limit driving on grass. Some potential input was discussed including charging for parking but it was decided to table this issue to allow absent board members’ input and for Bruce to revise some parts.
The formal garden area is scheduled to be planted next week. Bruce will send a brief update to the Granville Foundation since they contributed to this project.
Steve Mershon discussed the Vets Memorial area and handed out a draft flyer to entice donors to contribute to this project. Donations will be requested for the base area and for individual trees; donors will probably be listed in a registry. A tree donation will include some form of maintenance to go into a Vets Memorial area general fund. Jurgen promised to send details about this to Steve.
Discussion ensued about the parking lot between the Carriage, Terrace and Studio buildings. Jurgen reported the engineer’s points about some unknown underground utilities to be investigated as part of the engineering drawings to be prepared for bids. The members preferred to proceed with the original design and develop the required drawings; this may delay completion of the drawings. We apparently only made a verbal promise to GSVA to provide paved access to the Terrace House. The value of a temporary or limited access lane was discussed.
Candi reported no news about the senior center building.
The next regular meeting is scheduled for August 25, 2010.
The meeting was adjourned at 10 PM.
