OLD BUSINESS
1.  COMMUNITY SURVEY REVISITATION Discuss Community Forum with “dot board” charts instead of an online or printed survey. Would Manson Chamber want to partner with us in this if we do a Forum to discuss downtown improvements with the community? The Parks Department to discuss upcoming waterfront improvements? Manson Fire Department to discuss details of upcoming levy? The Colville Tribe to discuss new casino and hotel? Suggested format would be to give each group 15 minutes to present and then at the end of each discussion give each group another 10 minutes to answer audience questions, then move on with the next group.

2.  501C-3 vs C6: Understanding the differences between them and discussing what MCC could potentially qualify for. (Mike)

NEW BUSINESS
1.  CHELAN COUNTY UPDATE ON SURVEY MARKERS SHOWING PROPERTY BOUNDARIES & RIGHT OF WAY ON PEDOI.
 Update on survey markers placed by County showing property boundaries & right of way on Pedoi. Discuss what comes next to improve parking, hopefully for this summer.

Comment from Eric Pierson, Director/County Engineer: Our plan for the area is to talk to the adjacent property owners and work to clear/provide approximately 10 ft of room on that side for people to move off the road when parking.  It will not be full clearing of the right of way along the full length of the road.  We also will not do any clearing around the corner of Pedoi and Harris because we do not want to encourage parking in that location.  We are working this into our schedule so hope to get out there soon when time allows before the busy season.”

  1. MCC requests signs be posted on Pedoi regarding NO BOATS OR TRAILERS and NO OVERNIGHT PARKING.
  2. MCC additionally requests signage be posted for NO PARKING in the alleyway area and road of Henry Gray Street. It was decided by the County previously, however actual signage hasn’t happened. Fire trucks are still not able to get through and garbage isn’t being picked up at times due to cars blocking in the dumpster.
