2.       Election Process – Do we follow the same process as the Community Association as we are trying to partner with them or do we develop our own process? – If we partner with the Community association we will have to use the same election process so we will use it this time as well but the positions will be for Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer so we don’t get confused with the positions should we partner with the Community Association

CRC – has followed up and wants to be in the running for contractors, willing to negotiate upfront fees.

4.       Calls to brooks, swan hills and White court – Dwight called Swan Hills and spoke to a lady named Vanessa Lewis regarding how Spectrum did with their Skatepark. She stated they were great, the park was 3200 square feet and $172000 and was on budget and on time.

Jay Crawley from White court reported the same on their park that was 5500 square feet and $305000.
