Old Business 

  1. Treasurer’s report – Pat Scheckel
    • No update
  2. Edgewood Liaison Committee - Doug Poland
    • There are 3 pieces of construction currently in the works at EHS - the new Performing Arts Center which you can see taking place on the east side of the building; an elevator is being installed in the back of the building to get up to code; a new commons/main school entrance will be the next.
    • Proposed athletic complex - this expansion has resurfaced. Finding access to fields for the football team to play their home varsity football games is becoming more and more difficult and quite expensive. The school's agreement with Middleton has expired and no longer a good option. The team is playing on 4-5 different fields this year for home games.
    • The school announced their plans to move forward with an amendment to the master plan at a meeting on August 13th. This amendment includes installing lights and sound at the field.
    • Doug Poland is putting together a summary of the process EHS needs to follow to get this amendment approved and will be emailing that out to the list serve.
    • Mike Elliott, president of EHS, is planning on being at our next board meeting to present the plan and field questions. There will be another neighborhood meeting (date/time TBD) as part of the amendment process.
