Committee Reports:


no updates - all activity frozen due to COVID-19. Meeting in 2 weeks to discuss possible projects.

BMC Report:

ActionGrams are all policy related so were referred to the Board.

Owner’s Forum:

Paula and Bill reported smoke coming into their unit multiple times a day now. Did a door sniffing test to see if could find who was smoking and both smelled cigarette smoke at doors of 1301 and 1204. Tom confirmed the smell of smoke [may or may not be cigarettes] inside their unit.

Lauren moved Clyde 2nd that fine letters be sent to owners of units.

COVID-19 threat response – masks.

Recommended that all contract labor doing work in the building be required to wear a mask.

The same may be required of all delivery persons who enter the building including USPS, FedEx, & UPS.

Lauren will work on verbiage to send to all residents and owners asking/requiring masks to be worn outside their units while in shared public space inside the building.

Old Business: none

New Business:

Proposed Reserve maintenance and construction projects suggested by Tom include:

  • Resurface of down ramps to garage,
  • Concrete work to re-slope the 2nd and 3rd floor balconies that currently drain into the stairwell,
  • Install venting and fans to produce positive airflow on the ground floor to remove the Salon smells and improve air quality.

All 3 projects have been assigned to the MMRC for their review and prioritization.

Windows will be washed mid June.
