6. Newsletter needs more distributors. Rick Martinez has agreed to fill in as needed to take over for distributers no longer volunteering. We need to let Denise know that Rick can handle them all as needed. A woman on the 2500 block of north Santiago said she hasn’t gotten her newsletter in two years. We voted nearly unanimously to let Rick take over distribution (Rick abstained, one person voted against). Bobbie suggested the printer package them in bundles of 200. Patty suggested we add a donation form to each newsletter.
7. Traffic survey and solutions to traffic issues (Kathy McSorley and Traffic Committee) – City added striping on Virginia to slow down traffic. City will be adding a temporary traffic circle at French& Santa Clara (which the neighborhood can choose to vote to remove if they don’t like it).
