Presentation from Leonard Spraker, owner of commercial property SWC Missouri/7th Av
Mr. Spraker presented his plans for the redevelopment of the area now functioning as a strip mall and car wash. While no agreements are final, Starbucks and Jack in the Box (JIB) stores are the current planned tenants. JIB could potentially operate 24 hours. Neighbors expressed concern about the impact of the clientele & loiterers JIB may attract, in the later evening and early am hours. Concerns also about lighting and appearance were also raised. Startbuck’s tenancy is more imminent, with planned construction beginning in March, with occupancy in October (2005). Mr. Spraker has his commercial interests in mind, but has also indicated a willingness to work with the neighborhood. He advised that if the neighborhood had any specific concerns, they should be put in writing.

Block Watch grant projects
The major projects and their related discussion:
• Solar/Motion sensing lights – Lights have been delivered. The Bilbrey’s have volunteered to install them.
• Utility Easement Fencing/Gates – The previously identified vendor has declined the work. Jon has obtained bids from a new vendor. The cost ($2049) is now more than the original budgeted amount ($1400). It was suggested that the project be downsized to 3 locations to reduce the price (saving Missouri for another time). The location of the fencing for the easement at 3rd Av/Georgia & Oregon needs to be confirmed.

Entry Pillar Design
Jon presented several designs for the pillars. Greg Shouten is pursuing the quagmire of the City Planning approval process.

M&I Bank Signage
Kerry informed that the bank is entitled to pursue the signage it has planned and does not have to comply with the requests of the neighbors.

The meeting was adjourned.
