TO KEEP EVERYONE UP TO DATE ON WHAT THE FHA BOARD IS DOING, HERE ARE SOME OF THE ITEMS THAT WERE DISCUSSED OR DECIDED AT THE AUGUST BOARD MEETING:
- The new Harbor Master of Waldo Point Harbor, Bill Price, spoke with the Board about his ongoing intention to work with residents on piling replacement and other issues as they arise, including the FHA Day in the Park scheduled for October 20. Price was previously the harbor administrator at the Richardson’s Bay Regional Agency. His successor there is longtime County planner Curtis Havel. Sandy Miyashiro is no longer Director of Property Management for Sequoia Land Investments, and a replacement is being recruited.
- A new Resilient Neighborhoods Committee will form in October and meet at Carole Angermier’s house. The group’s goal is to reduce our carbon footprint.
- FHA Day in the Park will be October 20. It was agreed to budget $1,000 for this event, which will be free for all community residents. Organizer Jen Gennari needs volunteers to organize music, activities and food. One representative from each dock needs to be present at the event. In the morning, fire extinguishers may be recharged or replaced, and electronic waste will be collected.
- Stefan Krug (West Pier) will meet with PG&E to encourage the utility to designate floating homes as the last to lose power during an emergency outage, and to be the first to be turned back on.
- Katherine Boschetto reported that two more private tours are scheduled: August 28 and September 11. Boats and docents are needed.
- Ticket sales for the September 14 Open Homes Tour are ahead of the last Tour. A few choice volunteer spots are still open.
The next FHA Board meeting will be at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 10 in the Community Room of the Public Safety Building in Marin City.
