INCREASING AND MOTIVATING MEMBERSHIP

During the discussion, a number of ideas were offered for increasing the number of dues paying members to PRA and for motivating greater participation from them. These included the following:

NEW BUSINESS

It was brought to the membershipís attention that a recent post-card mailing had been conducted by developers for the purpose of encouraging local residents to vote against an upcoming proposal that would limit the ability of developers to increase the size of an existing homeís footprint when major renovations are performed. A public hearing was held June 17. No action was recommended.

The membership discussed the issue of vacant homes in the neighborhood and whether these properties should be reported to the county. The membership agreed and directed the PRA president to write a letter to the appropriate county officials giving the specific address of vacant properties and the issues that have been identified with them.

The next PRA meeting will be held in September 2008.

ADJOURNMENT

There being no further business, the June 9, 2008, meeting of the PRA was adjourned at 9:03 p.m.
