Introductions: Maija, Beth, Katie, Shirley, Martin, Luke, Byron, Dennis, Anjala. (missing: Andrée, Emily, Shelly)

Audience: Liz Kennedy, Bill Gates with United Methodist church, Dan Blue w/ Woodlawn PTA, Rick Reynolds.

Items to share from the audience: Bill lets us know that on the 15th the church is having a community conversation at their building to talk about repurposing the bldg. as a multicultural impact center – promote the culture of people of color, create multicultural community. 6:30-8p.

Approve agenda: Dennis moves, Byron seconds, all in favor

Approve minutes from Oct: Byron – note to add a detail to the October minutes: add Planning & Sustainability commission. Contact was Micah Meskel w/ Humboldt & Audubon. Beth will update appropriately. Byron moves, Dennis seconds, all in favor.

Officer’s report (if available) – no officer present – brief discussion whether we want to try to re-extend the invitation, but no one seemed to want to push the issue given that the police are rather busy and our meeting may not be the best use of time.

 

Woodlawn School – PTA update & how we can help. Dan Blue, parent of 2nd grader & 4 year old, has been doing PTA for 2 years.
