lovejoy concerns:

  • $$$$

  • work required before we can move in

general concerns:

  • how many new memberships will be required to maintain income

move for vote by ray @19:55: which location option do we pursue?

  • lovejoy - 13
  • whittier - 0
  • mickle - 0
  • keep looking - 1


whittier next steps:

  • tom talked to steve (!), he does not have a problem with us signing our share back over
  • tom reviewed our contract (had reviewed?) - it mentions being modified from the "master agreement" which no one has seen
  • also agreement is between area515 (which is not us (legally)) and whittier partners llc, which was dissolved by the state last year


lovejoy next steps:

  • get firmer details from don
