roof & leaks updates

  • Yar: spent last couple weeks putting a lot of goo on the roof - didn't dry and some washed out with rain. Another work day tomorrow; Mike starting 8am. Have already done two layers of the thinner coating. Next is pure silicone; supposed to dry in 2hrs. Mike says we've already paid for the $4K in volunteer hours. Next rain Monday?
  • Patrik: Mike mentioned putting in extra roof drains - was that part of the original proposal?
  • Sarah: more drainage badly needed. AFAIK no extra cost? Skylights ordered and paid for - plan for mid-Jan, depending on shipping


  • dk proposed that 20% of net ballroom proceeds go to improvements https://omnicommons.org/pipermail/consensus/2021-November/003111.html
  • last time we delayed consensus
  • presumably this means, after expenses
  • roberto: what about other rooms? what if we run out of money?
    • Nothing we decide here is set in stone - can always decide to change if needed
  • sarah: entrance hall ends up playing a major role, so maybe improvements could include that room?
  • CONSENSUS: yes (CCL, sudo, anv, csc), abstain (fnb), block (none)

Sudo rent forgiveness

  • Don't have updated proposal yet.

PLP space issues

  • yar will invite them to the next meeting
    • delay to Jan 6
  • Roberto: if PLP wants the entrance mezzanine, where do we put the library? Find an org who can take over some of the library?
    • Sarah: lot of effort in moving library. Move computer terminals and put library against that wall?
      • Yar: do we even need those terminals? Could just give laptop (chromebook?) to 1-2 people using them.
      • Silver: moving library was a lot of work! like idea of library wall - maybe even including space where fridge and microwave are. Library also needs organizing - can this group help?
  • Roberto: how much private space do they need? Can we keep a library-like space that can still be used for meetings?
    • Sarah: they mainly want a wall and a door - could negotiate exactly where that wall is - could be further back from CSC office.
    • Yar: most hinges on what PLP wants - conversation not very productive until they're part of it.
  • Roberto: PLP wasn't proposing to be a collective, right? Just want space?

cashless events

  • Sarah: this seems like a discussion for January - big conversation.
  • No events planned before end of the year.

meeting ended early! 8:20PM!
