Greater Hyannis Civic Association Board Meeting Report – February 11, check 2014

The following topics were discussed at the February 2014 Board of Directors Meeting.

Once again we will be applying for a Tourism Mini-Grant, and Bob Ciolek will manage the application process.

Mark Rogers, Communications Manager for Cape Wind, a project of Energy Management, Inc (EMI) was our featured speaker.  He gave a history of wind farms, talked about the energy benefits from wind farms, addressed cost issues, and answered general questions.  Energy from the wind farm will enter the New England grid and will contribute to the supply of energy.  The gas pipelines which serve Massachusetts are fixed and there is no increase in supply possible.  The wind farm would ensure we always have enough energy, during storms and heat waves, etc.  All NStar and National Grid customers in Massachusetts will see a 1-2% increase in their electric bills.  Currently EMI is in the project financing phase of the project.  They have a 25 year contract to operate the wind farm.

New Fire Station – It appears there is an effort to initiate a law suit regarding Proposition 2 ½ and the raising of taxes as a result of the new proposed fire station and the way it will be voted upon by the citizens of Barnstable.

A discussion ensued about whether we should continue the member/merchant discount passes – are they worth the cost?  A suggestion was made to look into printing them on stiff paper/cardboard, similar to business cards, which would save a lot of money.

We are going to start soliciting membership with greater Hyannis area businesses.  Brad Pfeifer is leading that effort.

Ralph Krau is a representative on the Hyannis 375th Anniversary committee.  The next meeting is February 19 at 9AM in the Selectmen’s room in the Town Hall.  All are invited.

We have received a request for input about a potential new Performing Arts Center for the CCSO.  Suggested location would be the Pufferbellie’s area.

We are planning our next general meeting for April 22, and a list of suggested topics will be sent to the general membership, soliciting their input.
