Minutes from the meeting of April 13, 2004 were distributed and accepted.
ITEMS OF DISCUSSION:
1. Treasurer’s Report: $12,282.34 as of April 30, 2004.
2. Membership report: There are currently 265 members paid and 613 members in the database.
3. Newsletter: The next newsletter will be sent the last week in June—in time for the July 4th picnic.
4. 4th of July Picnic: A band has been booked for the picnic. An increase in the maximum picnic budget from $450 to $500 was passed at the meeting.
5. Home Tour: The Home Tour took place on May 2nd with 425 tickets being sold. It is estimated that there will be a profit of $5200, including sponsorships.
6. Playground Equipment: The board passed a motion (4 to 3) to donate $1000 seed money to the Miller Park playground equipment fund raiser currently taking place. We will also try to help Linda Pass get a spot at the 4th of July picnic where she can talk to Ardmore residents about her goals. Ms. Pass is also hoping to distribute postage-paid postcards to the area around Miller Park as a means of getting help and/or donations from people whose children would use the equipment most.
7. Crime report: Last week there was a series of tire slashings reported on Irving Street between Queen and Craig Streets.
8. Zoning: Highland Presbyterian Church is considering allowing an outside firm to use its facility to run a “Habilitation B” facility for 9 to 12 autistic children. Since the church will not be running the program, a text amendment (proposed UDO-117) is
necessary. Current code allows for such a program, but only if the church would be running it themselves.
9. Knollwood Manor: The residents of Knollwood Manor expressed concern that their needs weren’t being met through the ANA so they are interested in re-creating their own neighborhood association. The ANA brought up that we can’t meet needs of Ardmore citizens if we don’t know what those needs are. We are hoping someone from Knollwood Manor will join the ANA or become a representative to come to board meeting and discuss the needs of the neighborhood. The ANA is considering creating satellite zones to encourage more members to join the ANA and possibly the board.
10. Meeting location: A motion was passed (6 to 4) to continue holding the meetings at Miller Park Rec. Center for the time being. If we do create satellite zones, single meetings (not necessarily board meetings) may be held in different areas.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:05PM
