Agenda: moved to approve, seconded and unanimously approved
August 2008 board meeting minutes moved to approved, minutes not available. Move to amend agenda. Move to vote in new member at large, Cori Jacobs. All in favor.

Cori told board about herself and why she would like to join the board. Cori was a HUGE help with the last neighborhood clean-up.

Kate Davenport listed possible articles for next issue of the newsletter for review.

Treasury report - Merryl reported the balance as approximately $6,000. Merryl and Cori will work on applying for the NECN grant money to buy signs for the Clean-Up and signs for the GPNA meetings. Merryl would alsolike to purchase thank you notes. The board approved the purchases.

Liz Alexander was unable to attend but there are no new activities or incidents to report at this time.

Liz Beegley is going to attend an upcoming somewhat unannounced Planning Commission hearing. The Planning Bureau is discussing rewriting the codes. Once these codes are changed and approved the ability to impact a process will be much more difficult. Liz B and Geoff will report back at the next meeting.

Land Use:
Geoff and Kate are going to work on getting information up on the website. It will be faster for neighbors to access.


  • Agenda for the next GPNA meeting will include a holiday party. The board unanimously approved $250 to go towards snacks and decorations. Liz B will arrange child care.
  • Liz B moved to change the start time of all GPNA meetings to 6:30pm. Unanimously approved.
  • Merryl will check with Greg re: printing costs. Will email Greg info to be printed and Greg will keep a tab which GPNA will pay monthly for any and all printing through GPBC.

Meeting adjourned at 8:05pm
