General Meeting Minutes from May 1st:
Date: May 1, 2016
Time: 2pm – 4pm
Location: KPL Central Library, Queen Street, Kitchener
During the April meeting, small groups met to create sample visions. Listed below is an amalgamation of all of the statements. It is not final but just a starting point.
We are a diverse, inclusive, multi-generational, sustainable neighbourhood of beauty and peace where we can grow as individuals while supporting each other, the earth, and the wider community in a net positive way. We foster a sense of belonging, meaning and purpose while sharing the fullness of ourselves and celebrating each other.
Updates from sub-committees:
Decision Making Committee
Land Search Committee
The steering committee meetings kept coming back to the issue of LOCATION. The later part of the meeting was focused on identifying those who, at this point, were more drawn to urban or rural projects. (However, many folks see the benefits of both and choices could evolve over time.)
Two groups were formed: RURAL/on the outskirts and URBAN
Once we made our choices in terms of rural or urban preferences, we listed our “must haves”, “wants”, and “deal breakers”. We also signed up again for committees for each of the rural and the urban groups. Now we need to start thinking about names and doing a cost analysis in order to have a more realistic picture of the overall financial commitment.
Both groups are meeting at the same location for the next general meeting scheduled for May 29th.
