May 12 CNG Steering Committee Notes

Discussion re Next Steps for CNG and Housing:
Attendees: Sheila, Audrey, Dave, Dee, Al
Housing: We want to collect stories for the participants at next week's meeting to be able to document and illustrate the consequences of our affordable housing shortage.  We also intend to develop a position and information to support  inclusionary housing policies by the City Council.
Dave will be working on a draft position statement.  Developing our strategy and this position statement will entail more discussion and follow-up by the Steering Committee.
June Meeting: Mark Schultz, DEED is also confirmed as a panelist for the June meeting that we agreed will focus on workforce issues facing community agencies.   Jerome...are you confirming the other panelists we had identified?
Community Indicators/ Olmsted Compass Points: There is a sense of urgency to get the project with Wilder moving ASAP, with the work group meeting, contract letter and/or set, and a fall publication target.  Audrey Betcher will co-chair this project with JoAnne to provide assistance in getting the project launched.
