Was anyone notified that they were making our Albert Park Community Center a library?
Lois Tucker
51:15
Lori, I was at the same planning meeting that you were, and I didn't hear that B St was selected until just now.
Lori S.
52:18
Sort of pathetic.
Paul & Annie Gaffney

re: Library
Lori S.
56:18
They certainly didn’t send it to me
Gretchen Leavitt

Who do we send our dues to?
Tom

re: Library: I believe No FINAL decision has been made with respect to remodeling the B Street Community Center to accommodate a Library. A contractor was selected to provide a preliminary design. A report to the City Council by Director Susan Andrea-Wax is coming soon.

Hi everyone, mom and animals in the background = no video! Nice to see you all. Is everyone aware that the BPAC meeting tomorrow Wednesday Feb. 3 2021 @6pm is an opportunity to discuss the proposed permanent total closure of the driveway into Walgreens straight from Lindaro? The City is offering a presentation on the total closure as well as an alternative “Exit Only” option. We will also (hopefully) be given more details of the imminent t BioMarin EdenHouse project!
Kathy Ries

Thanks- do we make them on the website?
Binky
01:10:27
yup. I will try again later
Alicia diVittorio - GPNA VP
01:10:55
@Jocelyn, let me check on that. You could probably use the same link for membership, and donate that way. Or you could send in a check to PO Box 150644 San Rafael, CA 94915
Binky
01:11:20
I was trying to use link too for membership …
Alicia diVittorio - GPNA VP
01:11:47

Jason Haikara

What’s going on with the tennis court in the park?
Kim McGinnis
01:36:42
Sorry Lori. That is why I directed everyone to the interview . She said it is Item 5C
Rosie K (San Rafael, CA)
01:37:16
what was the news about tree planting?

Tennis court is under review. It has to be ADA accessible. Susan Andrade Wax said
Melanie de Luna Vlahos
01:38:03

Binky
01:38:34

Compliant with County covid rules.

We got a new 6-yr. old dog. ✋🏼
Lois Tucker
01:40:21
If you are new the neighborhood, I recommend volunteering to be on the Board. I got to know so many people during my stint on the GPNA board. Highly recommend it.
Rosie K (San Rafael, CA)
01:42:31
what happened?
Rosie K (San Rafael, CA)
01:43:58

Great meeting. Thanks for everyone’s hard work. Signing off.
Lori S.
01:45:53
Does everyone know that the city is about to close the 3rd street entrance to Walgreens? You can make a difference as this is being presented to the Bicycle committee tomorrow
Lori S.
01:46:32
Apparently the Bicycle committee is now considered the public
Lois Tucker
01:48:18
Is that meeting on Zoom or in person, or …?
Jocelyn Corbett
01:48:38
which driveway would close? The one on 3rd?
Lori S.
01:49:11
yes
Claudia
01:50:11
How do we get the link to the zoom meeting?
Lois Tucker
01:51:11
what's the point of the closure?
Lori S.
01:51:45
Lois. Depends on who you ask. Everyone has a different reason No study at all.
Lori S.
01:52:56
This is not Europe.
Lori S.
01:53:58
I have police reports. There are literally 10 times as many incidents on 3rd and Looters than the current 3rd and Lindaro.
Lori S.
01:54:58
Why would they want cars to make so many encounters with pedestrians with no signal?
Alicia diVittorio - GPNA VP
01:56:49
I think this is the link: https://www.cityofsanrafael.org/meetings/bicycle-and-pedestrian-advisory-committee-2-3-2021/
Lori S.
01:57:13
Yes that is correct. Thanks Alecia

Thanks everyone! These meetings are very heartwarming. Hope to see you all at PorchFest 2021!!!!!
Lori S.
02:00:24
All they have to do is fix the street so cars don’t bottom out and widen the entrance so so when someone is leaving someone can enter
