MNA Steering committee Meeting Minutes – 1 December 2009

Steering Committee Attendees: Rob Clinchard, Grant Fisher, Drew Harris, Betsy Hilton, Kat Malcom, Dusty Harshman, Ann Jerome, Mike McGovern, Kerry Fisher, Kim Wine and Cliff Spinac
SC members absent: Bobby Gierisch and Timothy Brummett
Guests: Greg Buford and Jimmy Flanigan


I. Welcome & Introductions

II. Treasurer’s Report – Discussed the possibility of creating a business membership category for MNA. Perhaps about $50/yr and they would get recognition (not an ad) in the Front Porch Flyer.

III. Existing Business
a. Ronald McDonald House Walk – Events held Friday night at the hangar with the run throughout the neighborhood. Held in conjunction with the lighting of NOEL on the tower. As of the meeting, they had raised $109,000 with this effort and had 570 people registered for the run/walk.
b. Schools - Pearce Teacher Appreciation Lunch on Dec. 4th. Committee working to get meeting with Dr. Carstarphen and also to walk through neighborhood schools. The two may be combined. The committee is working to compile the results of their survey.
c. MNA Sponsored Social Events - $500 has been budgeted to contribute toward community events in 2010. Two ‘calls for events’ are envisioned… one in January and another likely mid-year. Watch for more information to submit your proposal. You’ll have to be a member of the MNA to apply. The Steering Committee will make the final decision on selection.
d. Holiday spirit – The Front Porch Flyer volunteer staff will select a block to win their holiday lighting award. Get those lights up and get ready! The contest will be announced at the MNA meeting Saturday and the winner will be announced around Dec. 25th.
e. Pecan Street Project – Dusty attended the press conference held at Mueller. They did receive the $10.4 million in stimulus grants from the U.S. Department of Energy. It’s too early to tell what this means to Mueller residents so watch for more information. We plan to invite Brewster McCracken to a MNA general meeting soon.

IV. Upcoming Meetings
a. General meeting on Dec. 12 will be at the Ronald McDonald House, 4th floor. We’ll have a holiday ‘party’ afterwards so bring a treat and plan to linger after the meeting and get to know more of your neighbors.

V. Additional Business/Open Comments
a. Imagine Austin – The City of Austin has been hosting meetings to get input on the comprehensive plan for the City. There’s a possibility we can hold one of their ‘meetings in a box’ at Mueller and have our input considered in the planning process. More information is at . Watch for information about a meeting at Mueller.
b. The steering committee unanimously approved a motion to pay our dues to the Austin Neighborhoods Council in the amount of $35 for the coming year.
c. The steering committee approved (unanimously except for Ann Jerome’s abstention) a donation of $50 to the Ronald McDonald house as a way of thanking them for hosting some of our meetings.

The meeting adjourned about 8:30 p.m.
