Tonight's CAC meeting was poorly attended. We had just enough for a quorum plus a few alternates. The group agreed once again to defer the election of officers to the next meeting, because we were not prepared to vote; no one was prepared to step up to run.
MDHA planner Linda Howard showed a PowerPoint presentation with examples of various projects on which CACs from other neighborhoods chose to spend their block grants. That was followed by small group discussions on what members saw as the strengths and weaknesses of Salemtown.
Looks like we will be getting down to brass tacks at the November 8 meeting, when we will be discussing ideas for community projects that could be funded.
