Minutes of Sam Hughes Neighborhood Association
Special Board Meeting at
Himmel Park Library
September 1, 2004, 7:00 PM
The meeting was called to order at 7:00 PM.
Board members present were:
Carolyn Classen, Gail Schuessler, John Wilder, Frank Soltys, Laddie Hall and John O’Dowd.
Guests in attendance were Jody Gibbs, Wallace Downer, Brad Moore and Mr. & Mrs. Power
The status of the proposed construction of an activity room at the school was discussed. The project is on hold pending review of the plans by SHPO. The SFB has not submitted the plans yet. A proposal by Bob Vint and Jody Gibbs to prepare a design concept, elevations, etc. for a historically compatible addition was presented by Gibbs. The cost would be between $2000-3000. The Board discussed the proposal and tabled it.
Carolyn will consult Bob Vint to see if some elevations could be prepared for presentation at a neighborhood meeting to demonstrate the differences in proportion, set-backs, etc. of the proposed project with one that would be historically compatible. It was agreed that the neighbors and parents need to be fully informed of the status of the project. Having such a meeting was to be discussed at next regular meeting of the Board.
It was also suggested that a Foundation might be willing to donate money to cover fees for consultants.
The meeting adjourned at approximately 8:15 PM.
