The minutes of the January 2012 Board Retreat were corrected to reflect that Beth Vogt is the Board representative to the Short North Foundation. The minutes were approved as corrected.
Goodale Gates Update
Stan reported that Rick had shared info that Quality Masonry is supposed to have a quote to do the work to me by this week. The Fabricator has given his price minus electric/lights. Rick has a lighting option that should work and will pass that along to Quality and the Fabricator. Once he has the quote, then the fabrication can proceed.
UCT Monument Update
The relocation of the monument to the park has been approved the Columbus Arts Commission and the move should occur in the foreseeable future as demolition on the rear of the UCT building is slated to start soon. It was urged that the move be documented for future reference.
Andy submitted an amended December 2011 Treasurer’s Report to reflect the correct amount obtained through the Columbus Foundation’s Big Give event. For the February report, Andy reported total revenues for the month of $2,960.00. Total net assets as of 02/02/2012: $40,974.49.
Andy also distributed Conflict of Interest Policy statements to the board along with the signature page for each board member.
Planning and Development
Fountain Status: Regarding the pond status, Stan indicated that bids for sealing the entire pond were due to CR& P department this afternoon. We have received the bill for the fountain memorial plaque but installation will await filling of the pond and operation of the fountain. Jason has posted an update on the fountain to the FGP web page. Stan and Bruce Dooley also met with Zach Klein to bring him up to date on the project and alert him to the need for City Council to approve a contract to seal the pond.
Columbus200 Grant Request: Stan reported that he had attended a GCAC orientation re: grant requests and in light of a tight time frame, he had consulted with various board members and selected the restoration of the Wm. Fish Gate (NW corner of the park) as a “best option” project. The grant request will total $25,000 with $10,000 being requested from GCAC. The project will entail repair and replacement of the tile roof with historically appropriate tile, removal of all lead paint and repair and painting of wood surfaces, cleaning and tuck pointing of the stone columns, cleaning and painting of the iron gates, and a re-dedication event to be held in the fall. Grant requests are due next week.
