There was a suggestion to have a resident Photo Contest for original photos of the neighborhood for the box wraps.

  • There was discussion regarding this years Calhoun Treasurers award. Discussion was regarding how we choose nominees and if we need to nominate someone each year. This discussion was tabled for a final decision next month.

Safety Committee Update

Steven from CIDNA was our guest. He presented a letter that was drafted by the Safety Committee regarding asking permission to hand out the Traffic Congestion Brochure to residents in the parking lot to help ease the congestion in Market Plaza. Discussion points were that perhaps just thanking them without asking for anything is a better approach, who will the letter will be coming from i.e. Chair, Board or Committee, and is handing out the brochure the best and most effective way to get the information out to residents. Resolution was to redraft the letter to just thank them, for their cooperation and to look forward to working with them in the future.
