The meeting was held at the picnic tables outside the pool at Ella Wooten park, where meetings will be held throughout the summer months.

Treasurer’s Report – We have $2300+ and are in good shape. We'll likely be able to fund another round of MNA grants this Fall so be thinking about potential requests. Check with Kerry to pay your dues if you're not current. Dues are only $10/year.

Mueller lot re-subdivision – Catellus proposes changes to two areas of Mueller. These had been proposed to go to Planning Commission together but Catellus recently split them into two actions. Part of the large lot on Hermalinda will be subdivided into about 48 zero lot line homes. That went to Planning Commission last week. Catellus proposes to take two Mueller Home lots on Mattie (facing Lake Park) and re-subdivide as four custom home lots. That action has not been heard by the Planning Commission yet.
