Follow up to the earlier presentation by the Steering Committee Chair to Joint Leadership (at 6:30 PM) a motion is required enabling them to proceed as follows:

Motion:
That the Board authorizes the Steering Committee, and such consultants and advisors as the Committee deems necessary, to identify the developer best suited to support the Congregation’s development goals as presented in the Committee’s Report to the Board this evening, and to negotiate specific terms of sale with a view to achieving those goals with manageable risk.

Seconded:    Jane Maass
Motion Carried

There was some discussion on potential timing of ‘a deal’. This is unknown as some work is required on the part of the developers regarding site plans and concept drawings, etc. Both developers have expressed interest in acquiring the corner property.

It was stated and is understood that a negotiated deal, when achieved, will need approval from Board, Presbytery and the Congregation.

The meeting adjourned at 9:30
