PHAN Board Minutes
Call to Order: 7:04pm by President Carol Williams
Present: Carol / Eric / Becky / Andi / Stephanie
The minutes for August were approved as read.
Treasurer’s Report – Not available due to John’s absence
EPN / PHAN Websites
Andi, Becky, and Carol have been attending design meetings. The completed sites should be ready to go live sometime in September.
Coalition vs. City-run EPN Office
Meetings have taken place to discuss the pros and cons of establishing coalition of neighbors rather than having a neighborhood office run by City of Portland employees. No decision has been reached yet as to which type would best serve East Portland.
Nominations for September General Meeting Elections
Vice President – Andi || Recording Secretary – Becky || At Large Member – Stephanie
Six additional At-Large positions – No nominations from the board, but Carol mentioned that AJ is interested in returning to fill an at-large position.
September General Meeting Speakers
Naomi Angier, Midland Library (five-minute presentation)
Angela Wagnon, Crime Prevention Coordinator (main speaker)
Thank You card to Vicki for Knott Park Maintenance
AJ will bring a card to next week’s General Meeting for board members to sign thanking Vicki for the great job she’s doing in keeping Knott Park maintained.
House on 117th
Andi will draft a letter to send to the owner regarding code compliance issues.
Andi posted the latest crime report in the park kiosk. Stats show improvement in the number and type of crimes that have occurred recently in Parkrose Heights.
Stephanie offered to pursue applying for another grant for next year’s National Night Out. She would like to see better recruitment/retention for getting people involved in serving on the board, attending General meetings, and actively participating in improving neighborhood livability.
At the October board meeting, ‘09~’10 goals and budget will be discussed. We will also discuss meeting early for a Board meeting on the day of the General meeting rather than meeting a week before. This would reduce the number of evenings board members are away from their families.
Next General Meeting: Tuesday, September 22, 2009, 7pm at PUMC
Next monthly Board Meeting: Tuesday, October 20, 2009, 7pm at PUMC
Respectfully submitted by: Becky Hartsfield, PHAN Recording Secretary
