1. Community Police Update
computer system a bit strange, the system wouldn't show change from last year to this year
beginning to see an uptick in package thefts for end of year 2019
Arrest around Green Door, and since then, the thefts decreased to the point of no thefts for 7 days
navigation team continued to keep the i90 area clean, just before Christmas
when it's super cold, enforcement drops off
800 Hiawatha went through a medico lock and stole a bunch property
i90 area is in a different precinct, and also it's grown to the point where it would be navigation team
2. Crisis Solutions Center, decision for Susan
Discussion about the changes. Primary change is less of a background check for social contacts from the police.
The police already run names for active warrants anyway, so this removes the process from the crisis center.
17 days is the maximum stay currently.
Brian Danin motions we approve the changes, Rebecca seconds. Unanimously approved.
3. George W Frost, formerly from SDOT, currently a consultant
Very brief update on route 48 bus is improved with better shelters and back on 23rd Ave.
Stuck in the snow (so George came instead): Andonis Ducksworth from SDOT -- information about the 23rd/24th Avenue corridor improvements
4. SDOT Charles Proposal
900 Rainier will have 400 units, there is info on SDIC
Field trip to look at the street.
-- Motion -- We would like to approve the concept of design, but ask SDOT if they can retain the 2 spots closest to Hiawatha St Circle for overnight parking.
We also want to ask about blocking access to left-turns northbound into the gas station from Charles.
Finally, if we can have a neighborhood RPZ started earlier than the proposed Lightrail 2021 plan.
Brian motions, Rebecca seconds, unanimous
5. Emergency Hub -- Grant for $1600, 2 conditions: insurance (CGL) and DON logo
$1600 Grant Approval
The person working with Diane on the grant limited the scope.
The project lead cannot be the signer and the fiscal sponsor primary contact person. Diane is the project manager.
James can be the fiscal sponsor main contact for the Hub and the fiscal sponsor signer.
We have no insurance. We need to get liability insurance. $1M, etc.
We need the proper people signed up and the insurance.
We need a location and to move the box from Bill's garage to the new location.
Diane has 3 locations in mind. Church parking lot and Judkins Park are likely the best 2 options.
Everyone is in favor of James as signer and fiscal sponsor as well as getting the insurance.
