Call to Order: The meeting was called to order at 7:00 p.m.

Minutes of the June meeting: approval was tabled because so few people who had been at the previous meeting are present.

Introduction of Intern: Theo Woehrle has a Master of Public Administration degree and the Bachelor of Science in Psychology. He is interested in public policy, service and land use issues, e-government and web 2.0 technologies.

Theo and committee members introduced themselves. Theo spoke of his experience with research and data collection. Committee members spoke about the demographics of their neighborhoods and issues or lack of them. There was some discussion of the nature of businesses in Como Park and our desire to bring them into a more cohesive group. We also discussed the importance of bus transportation in the district, particularly the north/south route on Lexington.

At next meeting we will plan for community meetings and other opportunities for input and we’ll pick up where we left off on with Strategy 4 in the small area plan.

Meeting adjourned: 8:00 p.m. Future Meetings: The second Monday of each month.
