Re: Committee Minutes and Logistics regarding Meetings
Dear Mr. Hughbanks and Members of the Sand Point Community Communications Committee,
The Laurelhurst Community Club Board of Trustees offers the following suggestions regarding logistics and planning for Sand Point Community Communications Committee (SPCCC) meetings. Our suggestions are intended to improve the effectiveness of meetings in fostering a substantive role for the Committee.
Minutes in General: SPCCC members should review the minutes of each SPCCC meeting and approve the minutes as corrected at each meeting.
Corrections to the Minutes: We offer the following corrections to the January 23rd minutes:
Future Agenda Items: We are aware that a number of Project Advisory Teams (PATs) have been formed for projects related to development at Sand Point/Magnuson Park. The 2001 Parks Development and Acquisition Communications Plan indicates that the Parks Department is responsible for producing agendas of PAT meetings, preparing meeting summaries and reports and coordinating distribution of reference materials. The Sand Point/Magnuson Park Public Involvement and Communication Plan further notes that PAT meetings are open to the public and that the purpose of the PATs are to advise on project development--phasing, priorities and design issues. To fulfill the Committee's role "to provide information for discussions and suggestions related to physical development and programmatic matters relating to Sand Point/Maguson Park and to provide input on potential future amendments to the conceptual Plan" as outlined in the Sand Point/Magnuson Park Public Involvement and Communications Plan, we recommend that the following information be provided and agenda items scheduled for future SPCCC meetings:
We hope you will consider our requests to improve the effectiveness of the Sand Point Community Communications Committee.
Jeannie Hale, President
Kate Lloyd, Magnuson Park Liaison
