Building & Facilities Subcommittee – January 5th 9:00am – Senior Citizen’s Center New London, MN

by Dec 19, 2018

Recap of First Meeting

Thanks to all who joined the subcommittee at our first meeting!

Our first meeting opened with everyone introducing themselves and sharing any applicable life experiences that will be an asset to the subcommittee. Following introductions, Erik Hatlestad, Bethany Lacktorin, and myself Dylan Erickson (core members) discussed current progress toward opening the coop doors.

Next, I gave a brief “building acquisition” update and then the table was opened up for discussion on how to the subcommittee could be most effective; through this discussion we created an order of operation list:

  • Research
  • Design
  • Demolition
  • Construction
  • Open Doors

It was a very fruitful introductory meeting, leaving me excited for our next meeting.

We are still looking, and will be in need of extra hands and minds up to opening the coop doors and beyond.

The meeting will last an hour and a half, concluding with tour of the prospective building!
