DISCUSSION:

This is our first meeting at the Baha'i center.

We officially recognized the efforts of the Romnes Apartment Association and thanked them for hosting us during the past few years.

Eco-teams are coming into our neighborhood - now that we have about 8 families interested in working to create a more sustainable life style A meeting of these families followed the BCNA meeting.

Neighborhood Garage Sale is set fr 9/9, and St. Marks Rummage Sale will correspond.

Discussion about rude and threatening behavior at Bernie's beach, with people deciding to call the police directly and ask them to patrol the beach area more often. We also decided to review this situation next month.

Andrew Morgan mentioned the basketball court situation, and asked the BCNA to help facilitate a meeting with the church so that he and the St. Marks church council can agree on a policy which encourages use of the basketball court but doesn't infringe on the life of the court's neighbors. Nick Glass agreed to write the church to initiate a meeting.

Jim mentioned the Wingra Creek cleanup scheduled for this Saturday.
