SIERRA CLUB September 2003 Meeting Notes

Hi: Just thought I would tell you about the meeting yesterday and say that we missed you all.
There were nine there, one new person. The biggest news is that the Art Center wants to charge
rent for the meeting place (the Burney room is now an office) and they really do not have a place
we can meet. They said they would charge $4 a head. So I will be looking for another place to
meet. We hope to meet at the central library or the Audubon Nature Center across from
Blutcher park and "brown bag" lunch. The group present were certain they wanted to meet at noon.

We talked mainly about Leon Loeb's proposal which is now getting "fast track" treatment by
the city. They hads snubbed him while Landry's offer was on the table. Actually Loeb will have
trouble getting his permit from the Corps because his plan has apartments and offices and only a
little water related stuff. We will see.

Good news though. Mina Williams agreed to be vice-chairman; Venice Scheuriich will do conservation,
and Kathy Griffith will help with membership.


Thanks, Pat
