Joe will set up sandwich boards at neighborhood corners. Tom Balcom will assist with creating the maps.

5. Bylaws
Add ability to correspond electronically.
No to online vote, just work out wording for upcoming votes.
Remove subcommittee stuff perhaps, but maybe better to keep for future growth.
Voting: at board election neighborhood votes, all other meetings board only votes.
Missing more than 2 meetings automatically removes an individual from board.
Board membership should become a 2 year term, splitting board in half and having alternating group terms.
Non-neighborhood residents may attend meetings, as meetings are open; however they may not participate in meetings unless recognized and invited to do so by the board.
Board members are required to be involved in at least one major TNA-organized event per year.
Bylaws will be reviewed at least once annually.
Board election takes place once per year. Only in the case of a board member leaving the board can a new member be voted in mid-term.
Consider adding NRP provisions to bylaws.

1-2 months before housing money becomes available.
Remainder of funds are available now.
Funding has been cut for all NRPs city-wide.
2011 will not be funded at all.

East Harriet Farmstead Neighborhood Association proposes neighborhoods surrounding Lyndale Ave. from 38th – 50th Street have available (for purchase) “slow down” lawn signs while that stretch of roadway is reconstructed this summer.
