- Updates from conversation with Mayor, Jonne Slemmons
- New land update – an advisory committee has been formed to address what is the best use of the new land that was purchased by the city; Shila is part of this committee and so far they have met 2 times and are generating a top 3 list of what people want; will have town hall meeting for more discussion and then vote the favorite and implement!
- Bike lane/signage – money has been budgeted through the city to put in a bike lane around a loop through the park to include signage; we could partner with this and do a bike share program!
- Review CDPP plan and assign activities to coalition members
- Coalition divided into 3 subgroups to better address the 3 risk factors in the CDPP plan and start planning strategies and assigning resources.
- Coalition will share every meeting on what they are working on, get the large group’s input, get assistance with resources and then break off into subgroups again to keep working towards the goals/activities.
- Always looking for groups to present our information to! We will share the BCBH presentation we made for all to use to review at the next meeting and make any necessary changes and then everyone has the ability to present to groups and use the same information.
- NEXT MEETING – OCTOBER 25TH @ THE CHURCH AT NOON.
