4. Discussion of the fight "incident" outside theSpace last Tuesday evening. 911 was called, took police 45 minutes to get to our address, by which time the couple involved had left. There is a need for required actions to be posted and made readily available to membership working at theSpace so that everyone handles such situations in the safest manner possible.
Heather and Shirley to write out a procedure/how-to for the wiki.
Process and steps to be posted in meeting room and on bulletin boards in theSpace.
Shirley has requested better communications with the Woodlawn Business Association so that all businesses and organizations are talking to one another ' "eyes on the street".
Need to post "No soliciting" and "No public restrooms" in front windows - we've had request for use and it allows strangers in the back where there are "desirable things". It's one thing if a visitor is here for activities - another if a stranger is wandering around unescorted.
Need to contact Birmingham City Police to get their recommended steps and training for handling future incidents.
5. 'Anyone got anything for Show-n-Tell? Sally showed off an LED skirt. She and Kurt have been working on the programming.
