Board agreed to try combo meetings (both community and board) on the same night for a few months and see how it goes and reconsider in a few months if meetings are getting too long.

Board voted to support a City Bill that would require realtors to inform potential buyers when they are going to buy a home in a historic community. Paul will be in touch with who to send a letter to.
Bill clarified that the RFQ being issued to repair bricks on north side of Conway St was spearheaded by South Baltimore Gateway Partnership.
