Annual business meeting minutes

Grandview Hills Neighborhood Association Business Meeting, May 19, 2014, 7 pm

A quorum of nine households (voting members) was present.

Re-adopt the Bylaws:  the Bylaws were unanimously re-adopted.

The following sentence was inserted into Article 1 unanimously:  “The Grandview Hills Neighborhood Association (GHNA) is a tax exempt 501(c)(7) organization.”

An amendment was proposed last year to redefine quorum as such: “Quorum for GHNA meetings shall be any members present."  This was discussed but not voted on because most people seemed not in favor.  We will publicize a different motion for a 30% quorum for the next time we meet.

Elections:  The following people were elected to terms of office:  Secretary – Anne Haynes, Treasurer – Jeff Morris, Member at Large – Claudia Lindman.

Officers’ reports:  Jeff Morris reported our balance is $144.02.  Gillian reported that the stitching group went very well and made a knitted/crocheted quilt that it  donated to Middle Way House.  The group will resume meeting in the fall.  Meagan and Chris installed a Little Free Library in their yard and that was the first one in Bloomington.  Jessica coordinated a neighborhood cleanup.  Gillian wrote a grant for euonymus eradication, but we did not get the grant. 

People expressed interest in knowing what is going on with the Duke Energy expansion of the power station on Grandview Drive and why we were not informed as a neighborhood.  Meagan offered to contact Vickie Provine to get any information she can. 

We will put information about GHNA and how to join on the flyers Meagan makes for the yard sale, and put sign-up sheets at each participating house so people can get on our email list.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:30.

Respectfully submitted,


Anne Haynes, Secretary
