Bayshore Neighbours

An association of residents of Bayshore Towers


concerned about their building and their neighbourhood

RECAP MEETING MONDAY, DECEMBER 3

1) VOLUNTEER REQUIRED FOR SECRETARY POSITION

No volunteer has stepped forward yet, so the Chair will continue to fill in as
best as he can. (By the delay in getting this recap out, you can see that
relying only on the Chair is not effective.)

2) TREASURER’S REPORT

Treasurer Maryann reported our group has assets of $188.94 in the bank
and $73.07 in the coffee kitty, for a total of $262.01.

3) FUND-RAISING IDEA/QUILTING BEE


4) BALCONY REPAINTING IN SPRING

Georgs said he will report after he attends the next Board meeting.

5) SALE OF BAYSHORE TOWERS

We keep hearing rumors that Bayshore Towers will soon disappear,


rumors that we strongly suspect start with the folks peddling the
SR&R condos and towns in our backyard. Is this a problem that
DCC#19 should address?
Georgs to speak informally with Robert, DCC#19 president, and report
back.

Robert Owen is not overly concerned about what the SR&R gang may
be saying about the future of our building.

"We're the ones with the view and our values are going nowhere but
up," he said, noting that a unit recently sold for $180,000, an all-time
high.

He did say that if we can get proof that SR&R people are actually
saying our building will disappear, DCC#19 could consider legal action
and likely be successful. That would be one way of keeping or
maintenance fees low for the next 20 years, he joked.

"Get some affidavits and we'll take it to our lawyers," he said.

So, let's keep our ears open and see if we can document any such
statements. Time, place, who said what to whom, that sort of thing.
Obviously, second-hand comments would not stand up in court.

6) COMMITTEE OF ADJUSTMENT/QUESTION OF ETHICS

Ed reported that no guidelines existed regarding conflicts of interest at


municipal committees. He said a new book may shed light on the subject and
how best to proceed. He’ll report back when appropriate.

7) OMB HEARING DECEMBER 6

Hazel will speak on our behalf in opposition to the application by SR&R to


increase density by 24 units.

8) PLANNING FOR POTLUCK SOCIAL IN JANUARY

All systems are ready to spring into action right after the holidays for a
successful event on Saturday, January 26.

Regarding a budget for the event, the Treasurer reported that we spent
$63.60 last year when 48 persons participated. The guesstimate is that just
under $110 might be needed this year when we are aiming for 70 persons in
attendance.

MOTION by Jocelyne, seconded by Hazel, that the potluck organizing

Bayshore Neighbours Association
committee be authorized to spend $100 of association funds on the event.
CARRIED.

At the January membership meeting, a decision will need to be made on the


ways to promote attendance and immediately initiate action. Some ideas:

--a new updated poster is urgently needed for posting on all bulletin boards

--go door-to-door with an invitation that Honorary Resident Willie Robb has
volunteered to design; print black on colour stock to keep the costs down.

--get permission to post a flyer in the elevators during January, even if for
only a day or two at a time in between the important notices from building
management.

How can we get new residents to participate in the potluck? That’s an


important question that needs answers.

9) BOOK EXCHANGE FOR BAYSHORE RESIDENTS

The library is up and running, and being used by residents.

10) NEW BUSINESS

Jason Macrie gave an account of his difficulties with building management in


the aftermath of a collision with the garage door. He planned to fight what he
described as an arbitrary decision to assess damages.

11) NEXT MEETING DATE: Monday, January 7, at 7:00 p.m.

12) ADJOURNMENT

PLEASE NOTE

If you don’t bake, bring coffee, or otherwise provide refreshments at


meetings, please drop your spare change in the donations cup to help cover
operating costs.
