Committee Reports:


Lighting upgrade for back and side of building details:
  • East door under the portico – move fixture by door up and into an LED flood light fixture under the portico illuminating the stairs and back door area;
  • reposition the spot light fixture by bike racks ~ 2 feet higher on the wall to eliminate lens flare in camera;
  • add a small flood to illuminate the area by the personal access gate at the south portico.
  • Lighting upgrades will better light up the property and hopefully reduce the vandalism and theft due to better lighting for cameras to identify perps.

Lauren moved to allocate $1,000 to be spent in January on this project – 2nd Jean – unanimous.

Hal will contact EPD crime prevention Dept. to schedule a walk around security check with an officer
