Summary of the Congregational Meeting held on 3/23/2014
The New School Liaison team presented details on 2 projects: the parking lot agreement and sewer line tie in. The parking lot easement and the shared overflow use by both parties was thoroughly explained with the aid of diagrams. We are proceeding with a formal agreement with the Red Clay School District. The second item was the sewer tie in line project, where the easement location, costs, timing, advantages & disadvantages were presented. The discussion that followed addressed all questions, including the project would be done under a specific capital fund raiser as Phase I. Phase II was also carefully explained and will be decided upon in the future.
We introduced the motion: GLC agrees to contract with Red Clay School district for construction of a sewer tie in which will connect the school sewer line to the Grace property line for an estimated cost of $15,000 for which GLC will have a capital fund raiser.
The motion passed 58 -2.
As the result of this overwhelming support, a new capital campaign has been initiated, with the goal of raising the $15,000 needed within the next 6 months. All contributions should be identified for “New School Project”.
There is a NEW SCHOOL PROJECT poster in the Narthex, with the development plot clearly identifying the parking easement & new sewer tie in locations. It also lists the project details and the Capital Campaign status. Please thank our school liaison team for such a tireless and thorough job: Art Perella, Mike Goyda, Bob Howle.
Town Meeting Notes March 23, 2014
I want to thank all of you who shared an hour with me at our town meeting last Sunday. It was a joy to have an open and casual face to face dialog with so many members and talk about “what’s going on at Grace.” I hope this informal conversation meeting format was equally as positive for you. (that means- let me know with your feedback!) Town meetings, like the one last week, will be a common occurrence at Grace over the next year, so you have the opportunity for inclusion & participation in and to get the latest updates about our journey forward. If you were unable to attend, please take time to read our new Transition Bulletin, which explains our plans and timeline. I realize you may still have questions or concerns, so please do not hesitate to contact me or a member of our Mutual Ministry team for discussion.
Thank you and God Bless
