Safety/Security

info about past events now received. Another bike theft has happened recently. Discussion prompts Jeff to write warning announcement for posting to specifically warn bikers about this and remind that they can park inside.

Owners Forum

Douglas requests that information about local thefts, vandalism, and assaults be shared more or less immediately with the owners so that everyone can be more careful and aware as needed. A method needs to be found to accomplish this. Jeanne-Marie states that the Jefferson West Side Neighborhood Association has a method. Luther asks that scheduled Committee meetings be publicized so that others can come to the meetings in the hopes that fuller participation will make things work better.
