SC members absent: Kathy Sokolic, Michael Adams

I.Welcome & Introductions

II.Treasurer’s Report – Balance is $2383.73. Kerry provided membership data by street. We have no members on Sahm and only one on Hermalinda and Cal Rodgers. We have 104 households that are members.

III.Existing Business

a. MNA officer elections. Current officers gave a summary of the responsibilities of their positions. Kat Malcom was not running for an officer position so she served as parliamentarian for officer elections. The following were elected as officers for the 2010-2011 year:
Secretary – Betsy Hilton (unopposed)
Treasurer – Kerry Fisher (unopposed)
Vice-Chair – Dennis Mick (unopposed after Drew withdrew)
Chair – Grant Fisher (unopposed)

b. Beautification/Alliance (John Guest) – We're going into our 3rd summer in parts of the development and seeing some evidence of wear and tear. We've seen concerns about how the community is being supported in general by the POA and Alliance (water fountains, pool, road repair, lack of yard maintenance, broken sidewalks, signs bent and falling down, etc.). Committees appointed by Alliance/POA/Catellus are accountable to them. Maybe we need a MNA committee(s) accountable to residents to discuss these sorts of issues. If maintenance deteriorates over time, property values will slide and catching up will be difficult. After much discussion, Mary Piette will chair a Coordination Committee for the MNA. They will collect a list of major issues needing resolution and seek to work through those issues by coordinating with Catellus.

c. Traffic Signal at Zach Scott – Jim asked about the status. Betsy has it on her list to ask about at the Transportation Committee meeting on June 30. Also discussed the failure of some drivers to yield to pedestrians crossing ZS on the hike/bike trail.

d. Fourth of July events – Resident Activities committee with Catellus is planning the activities, thanks to an $800 budget from Catellus. Everyone please join the parade or come watch the parade! Volunteers are needed in several areas (tent set up/break down, music play list, videographer, etc.) – please see and volunteer! Everyone is invited to a block party on Tom Miller and viewing the downtown fireworks in the evening.

e. Pecan Street Project – Kathy Sokolic and Garreth Wilcock serve as Mueller representatives on the Pecan Street Project's Executive Committee. A kick-off meeting is scheduled for June 30 at Asbury Methodist Church at 6:00 p.m.

IV. Upcoming Meetings – General meeting will be July 10. Potential speakers/topics discussed included the lifeguard company, City street dept, Update on Bartholomew, Austin Film Society, Troublemaker Studio, Police district rep, overview of New Urbanism principles. Grant will make some calls to see what he can arrange.

V. Open comments:
Future Meeting schedule – We agreed to move General Meetings to the 3rd Saturday starting in August, with steering committee meetings on the 1st Tuesday of each month.

The meeting adjourned about 8:30 p.m.
