10. Open Matters – Members of Tangletown Marianne Shaw explained that a lot of work is going on planning for possible emergencies, such as avian flu, but it is not clear if anything is being done at the neighborhood level. Lots of planning involves state and local governments and hospitals and other first providers. The Minneapolis Fire Dept offers some training, probably in September, if a group of neighbors are interested. The training is 40 hours in total. Southwest has already had this training. Some basic information could be included in the next newsletter on this issue. Marianne Shaw agreed to be the contact person for people interested in getting the training. A sign up sheet at the July 4th event will be used to see who would be interested. See http://www.pandemicflu.gov/plan/pdf/Individuals.pdf for the City of Minneapolis information.

The board discussed the upcoming changes to the Aqua City Motel site on south Lyndale Avenue, where condos have been proposed. The original plan was for 57 units, and approval was for 51 units.
