Fellow Loft Tenants,
The recent Loft Board meeting was a little under 2 hours and featured, among other highlights, an ‘executive session’! The executive session was on matters concerning 13 and 15 Thames St and we members of the public were asked to take leave and wait outside the board room.
The meeting started with an amendment request (Daniel Schachter) of the previous mtg minutes to include a conversation on possible outreach efforts to tenants.
Early on in this meeting, Chuck DeLaney asked that the Board formally add to it’s policy issues for the future Chairperson the concern of a application deadline rush and outreach. He asked the Board to officially weigh in on and comment on the good of extending the deadline for new applications, and executive director Lanny Alexander seemed interested and well disposed to the idea. (They spoke to each other about it more after the meeting.)
