July Minutes 2015

The meeting was called to order by President Daniel McClendon at 4:05 pm.

There were no minutes to approve from last month due to the social.

All present introduced themselves and signed in.

Treasurer’s Report/Jenny Lumb: RADBA now has 42 members total from last year with 5 new or returning members just added. Not all membership dues have been paid and invoices will be sent out so be on the lookout for those in your email. The only outflow from the account is the $300 for the landscaping on Clingman.

RADPAC: discussion about the Clingman Avenue extension becoming one way. It is set to go ahead but still talking to businesses and property owners to get the final go ahead. It will be one way from driveway into Fergusons parking lot running south. The top of Clingman Ext. will remain two way between Grey Eagle and Ferguson. The curb will stay in place and parking spaces won’t be marked yet.
Form Based Code: Lee and Sasha from the City came to present the concept map for the new form based code that will be implemented.
