In attendance

A motion was brought to the board to approve the minutes of the last meeting-unamimously approved

Terry Daniels reported that we have 145 paid members and our balance in the checking account is $3306.75

Patrick Lynn of membership requested another mailing to try to recruit more members.
We have 145 homes signed up and the anticipated cost of the mailing is $120.00 and the mailing would go to the address on the tax records.
Terry Daniels motioned for approval, approved by all

Taylor Cushmore of security reported that the two homes that were targeted as trouble spots had both had police activity. The home at 1606 was raided by the police and a parole was arrested and a drug offender was re arrested.
The home at 2372 Camino Real had a police raid where various citations were issued mainly for under age drinking.

We had a discussion regarding the locking of the golf course at night. Sam Adams is opposed as he would like to drive his golf cart to dinner and feels that the locking of the gates would hamper this. The security issue was discussed with various outcomes. The main one being that security is our main concern. A possibility would be to lock the gates at a time so diners could still go to dinner. Because of the expense-we have discussed block captains as an alternative.
The overall feeling is for security purposes, the chains need to be up as soon as possible.

Lexie on Camino Real has offered to interface with the golf course, but it was felt that we needed a golf member to be our liaison with the golf club. A search has been formed.

Social Chairman Monty Collins reported that his committee will meet in August to start planning an event for the fall-perhaps at the Ace Hotel or Leons.

Webmaster Rick Lord questioned how to transfer files from Icno to our personal e-mail's. He requested that we send pictures of pets to him. He is interested in posting information regarding historic homes.
We discussed incorporating neighborhood services that we would have a link to, if so, we would need a form and form a commercial membership.

Rick also commented upon our mission statement. Linda Meierhoffer is writing the verbiage.

Linda Ward reported upon the neighborhood signage that the city has approved. It is $81.00 per sign with a 6 week leeway. The city has guidelines which must be adhered to. We are looking for a graphic artist to help with the sign-we think it should incorporate the Indian Canyon logo.
We need to determine where the signs should go and considered having members sponsor signs.

There was discussion about the history of the old CCC, the Palm Canyon Estate sign and what should be done with the present sign.
It was felt that the sign was a brand in the community and the new sign should tie into the neighborhood-and why do we care what Realtors call our area.
It was questioned why we even need a sign at Camino Real and La Verne. John Day was going to visit the board of Realtors to find out any information.

Meeting was adjourned at 6:30 by Philip Brent
