Old Business: Carriage House – Bid questions: can we have our architect do the bid construction package? What is price if they do it? Who reviews it? What does the Village require? Does Bird and Bull do the bid package and review it as well since they are contracted with the Village?
New Business: Jurgen’s Project Proposals: Jurgen presented a slide show for review and consideration for future projects. Candi remarked that we need to keep the cost of maintenance and upkeep of any future projects in mind. See attached commentary and pictures.
Vince said that his first meeting with the Art & Wine is coming up and the question of pay parking will possibly resurface. Discussion of policy followed. Will allow them to charge but 50% will go to Bryn Du. Fewer number of spaces will be available due to a scheduled wedding, and it will need to be tightly managed.
Richard Downs – Solar energy will be life/local topic this Tuesday. Vince invites the Board to attend on April 30th it is conjunction with the turn off your screen week that the library and GRD put together. The Granville Inn has given gift cards that are being given to the speakers.
Project approvals – none at this time.
Master Plan Discussion – Community Gardens – Jurgen and Debbie Walker have met, soil samples have been analyzed, and no surprise it is full of clay. The National Association of Community Gardens has been contacted in hopes that they will come to look over and offer some assistance on the project. Plans need to be worked up to begin the project. Jurgen may check with CTEC on possible building of raised beds.
Barn – Mr. Troth will come out from Friends of Ohio Barns to next meeting.
