The July 18, 2005 committee meeting minutes were not attached with the meeting notice. They will be reviewed at the next meeting.
Linnes-Robinson had been in communication with a company that prints the images that could be used for the Art Bus Shelters. They felt the project was doable, the material could possibly withstand graffiti (they have an interior product that can), and she was working on getting a quote from them.
The Methodist Church office in the former Hobart Church building is probably moving and not interested in a grant because of this. However, they also house a theatre non-profit group, kids music class, and another church that may be interested. They will pass the word about the Social Service grants onto the other groups. Linnes-Robinson has not had time to get in touch with any other of the social service providers including Head Start and San Miguel School and the South Side Community Clinic to see if they are interested.
The committee briefly discussed the DNR Grant that was received and the outreach that will occur alongside their planting. Instead of asking neighbors to apply for the trees, since KFNA will plant all of them, KFNA will make a contact on each block and use this person to pass out environmental educational materials and promo for KFNA on the project. All trees will be planted in the spring of 2006.
