Annual Budget Review. Learned about the budget process, along with establishing funds, and got to meet some of the other NAC chairs. Traffic issues at Lakehouse. After an HP Pavilion concert, there was a buildup of cars after an argument sparked. Discussed possible solutions to mitigate the buildup of cars using Lakehouse after a concert like closure of sidestreetsside streets after concert events, but there was a question of city resource vs. self maintenance of the residents.
“Yard” sale. See if itsit’s possible to have this in the fall. One potential site is the empty corner lot on Josefa/San Carlos next to the tattoo parlor. Jodene will call the lot owner. An email list will go out to consolidate the list of items and donors. Any items not sold by the end of the sale will be donated to the salvation armySalvation Army or other nonprofit. Catherine: Emergency Prep Training that she attended was mostly focused on your own home. They gave family plans for various disasters and preparedness kit instructions. Some tips during a disaster: 1) Whenwhen phones go down, text messaging still works. 2) Store an old fashioned phone (that does not need power) incase the electricity goes out. 3) Keep day glow sticks. If there is a gas leak, it can be possibly ignited from a flashlight switch. Liz Ortiz and Rosalinda Cortez: RReminder of the Family Giving Tree.
