6. Limelight Status

Neighborhood representation was sparse at the May 27 Council meeting. Despite few neighborhood speakers, the outcome was positive in terms of OMV concerns. The city imposed restrictions, which if they are upheld, should deal with many of the neighborhood issues.

7. 501c Status

Forms are complete and need review. The proposed changes to the by-laws need to be completed before Ronit can continue with the Articles of Incorporation. Ronit again reviewed the IRS tax form hours and priorities, which were discussed during the May OMVSC meeting. Ronit distributed hard copy of forms for review and requested feedback from all Steering Committee members. Ronit and Aaron will review forms and request one additional SC member to assist in this process. Larry volunteered.

  • Bruce Karney has volunteered to be the chair of the committee and Ronit and Velva will be committee members.
  • The Steering Committee needs a Vice-Chair and an additional At-Large member.
  • Discussion of roles and commitment necessary for vacant positions. The vice-chair would need to be willing to step-up to the chair after a year.
