Chair Report: Zombie Productions has applied for a sound level variance from 2:00 to 10:00 p.m. on October 13th at Midway Stadium. The public hearing is scheduled for September 19th in City Council chambers. Midway Stadium is not in District 10 but does immediately abut it. Noise from concerts at Midway Stadium has been an issue for nearby District 10 residents in the past. Kim Moon will write a letter to the City Council to indicate that we approve of the variance, but would appreciate that the sound level be monitored so it does not exceed the upper limit of the variance.

New Business: The bus barn near the Hmong Academy has been vacant, but has been sold to another bus company. Residents, who live near the area, have noted an increase in bus traffic through neighborhood streets.

Motion: Communicate with the new bus company about who we are and what expectations we have of their access to their facility, avoiding residential streets streets. (Harkness-Hinderscheit) Passed.

Kim Moon will research whom to contact at the new bus company regarding this issue.
