2) The presentation from King Woods on the proposed expansion of Powerhouse Bar

on Highland Avenue did not occur due to non-appearance. Discussion occurred as

to whether we should table or oppose. Ted Otis stated concerns about historical

facade of the building being changed. Motion was made to table until later meeting.

It passed 7 for, none opposed, and one abstention.

3) Discussion of proposed by-laws changes within HHWNC. Chair Paul Woolsey gave

an overview of how the P.L.U.M. concept is employed in other NC’s, including

Central and Hollywood United. Chair expressed mis-givings about non-democratic

nature of this as opposed to current system in regards to Stakeholders not being

allowed to vote in PLUM meetings. Paul Ramsey, Chair of Housing Committee-

reservations about how Stakeholders would react to losing the right to vote on

projects in their own neighborhoods. Stakeholder Shelley Kiah questioned why

anyone would want to do this. Further discussion went to how Area Committees

would participate in process of land-use applications. Chair Woolsey stated to

group that he had sent numerous requests to other members of By-Laws Committee

for clarification of these concerns but received no direct answers.

At this point Paul Ramsey made motion that we make no changes to the current

system, that if changes were to be made that no PLUM Committee be created-

that by-laws amend
