Meeting Minutes 3/20/14
* Andi, Lacey (moderator), Scott, Spencer, Tammy, Toby, ?
People looked at rooms at 3140 O St.
The only one that might be made handicap-accessible is 700 sq ft for $750, but we can’t do that without a partner. Everything else is on the 2nd floor.
The first space is 1026 sq ft for $400; it’s not as nice, and the bathrooms are far away.
The second space is 750 sq ft for $450; it’s nicer, and it’s Lacey’s favourite. But it doesn’t have as big of a big room.
They’ll rent to Common Root if a human being signs on too. The lease is 6 months, and the deposit is 1 month’s rent.
Perhaps we can rent free large spaces (like at the libraries or at Grace Lutheran Church) for large events but still get this spot for our long-term address and a place for our stuff. Then look for an even better place over the next 6 months or whatever.
The vote is 4 to 1 for the second space.
Note: all landlords are named David. This one is David Hamilton, an accounting instructor at SCC.
The concert is Saturday!
We have to end early, so the band’s times are cut a bit. We’re going to raffle off the XBox.
3. April events
Azaria has a bake sale all set up.
Lacey’s March contribution for $25 paid for our booth at Earth Day.
Free Saturday is at Peter Pan Park in April.
4. Tyrrany is Tyrrany
This band is having a show at March 29, and we have been offered a table. If William’s back by then, then he would probably love it.
5. Internet stuff
Andi wants andi at commonroot dot net; Toby will set it up.
We now have $1800.02.
$400 is reserved for 501(c)(3) status.
$400 or $450 is for a deposit on the new space.
$400 or $450 will be needed April 1 for rent on that space.
