Neighborhood Association (NA) Meetings: Sue Jones had talked with the Presidents of the ten existing neighborhood associations. All are flexible with regard to meetings and actions. They are mainly reactive to issues (e.g. land use). It was proposed that the Barrington Heights Neighborhood Association have one meeting per year.

Nominations were opened for additional names; none were placed. A motion was made by James King and seconded by Robert Perkins to accept the nominations of Sue Jones (President), Greg Ankofski (Vice President), Shelley Hanlin (Secretary), and Brian Allen (Treasurer). The motion passed unanimously.

New Business: Brian Allen will establish a bank account for the neighborhood association. West Linn City Council will determine whether the association will receive an annual amount equal to that given to other associations ($1500) or if it will receive an equal portion of a total amount of $1364. The funds do not carry forward, but may be replenished annual if needed.

Committees: There was discussion regarding inclusion of the existing committees of the Barrington Heights Homeowners Association within the framework of the neighborhood association as appropriate. There was specific discussion of the Traffic and Safety Committee, which Brian Allen and Robert Perkins agreed to chair. A motion was made by James King and seconded by Larry Jones to include the committees. The motion passed unanimously.
