Terry Deno opened the meeting at 7:10PM. There were 72 people in attendance.

Mel Neil gave the Treasurer report. Current balance in checking is $6,119.02. We paid Mike Britton $1,846 for his work helping us with our case against Morningside Apartments. He has worked for the city in past years dealing with traffic issues and congestion. Mel mentioned that all of the e-mails sent, calls made, and great attendance at our meetings have really paid off. He thanked everyone for their support.

Jim Bakke discussed our appeal effort regarding the SEPA decision. On Sept. 28 the City Planning Commission voted 4/3 to recommend that the City Council deny the request for the Morningside zone change. Our neighborhood council officers met with Rick Eichstaedt regarding our appeal. He is the Land Use Attorney helping us with our case. Rick recommended dropping the appeal rather than delaying our presentation to the City Council. The fact that the Planning Commission ruled in our favor gives us a good advantage.
We dropped our appeal on 10/5. This will save our money until needed later.

Monday, Nov.7, will be our presentation to the City Council. Public testimony will be heard. Each person is limited to 3 minutes. Jim stressed that any comments made need to be concise, factual, courteous and polite.

Terry Deno mentioned that our attorney recommends that we should file to become a non-profit organization. The fee is $200.00 on line. He also thinks that we should look into Directors and Officer Insurance. They will be checking with several companies to compare prices.

Captain Tom Hendron of Spokane Police Dept. gave a crime report. He mentioned the house on Indian Trail that has been closed down because of drug dealing. He said the neighbors were a big help in building the case against the owner. He will be asking for 4 more resource officers to be added to our northwest area in next year’s budget.

Candace Mumm announced that the City Council approved Craig Meidl as the new Police Chief.
