Guests:

Steve Thomas, Dessie Longinidas – they are working with community leaders, Town councilors, and Town attorney, on drafting a petition to ban single use plastic bags with handles within the Town of Barnstable.

  • Statistics –
    • Uses 30 billion /yr. consuming gas & oil commodities.
    • 1 re-usable bag = 1,000 single use
    • Many alternatives – paper, bring your own cloth or recycled bags.
    • 1,000 year to photo degrade, they never fully disintegrate.

There are already some towns (Harwich, Falmouth, and Provincetown) on the Cape that have adopted this, and it is becoming a national initiative.  They are targeting their first reading to the Council July 9, working with Attorney David Houghton, and some councilors to sponsor (Hebert was one of them).  The proposed ordinance would provide businesses 12 months to comply, set with fines which accelerate with each infraction.

The are asking GHCA for support, a letter to the councilors, or asking for GHCA member to get signatures for presenting the proposal to the council on July 9th.

Due to lack of quorum, Board is unable to vote on any action to support. For more information google “plastic bags bans.”  This effort is based out of the Unitarian Church in Barnstable.

  • NEXT BOARD MEETING: July 14, 2015

Meeting Adjourned at 8:08PM

Respectfully submitted,

Laura Cronin, Assigned minutes taker for the evening
The following topics were discussed at the January 2014 Board of Directors Meeting.

Mark Rogers from Cape Wind was not able to attend this Board meeting, cialis so we are going to ask him to come in February.

New fire department building: we would like to see the vote for the new fire department building plans be done with a private, viagra paper ballot and also for the date of the vote to move to April/May when more citizens of Hyannis are back from their winter homes.  As it stands now, the new fire house plans, as allowed by the fire district charter, can be approved by a verbal vote from only 15 people, and this vote is presently scheduled for March 5.  Joe Chilli and Bill Cronin are going to speak to the head of the Fore Commissioners to discuss our suggestions.

There are two meetings scheduled regarding the new fire station:  a fire station committee meeting on January 22 at 5pm in the Steamship Authority conference room on School Street, and also a Fire Commissioners’ meeting on January 30 at 7pm at the old fire station on High School street extension.  Several members of the GHCA will attend, and all GHCA members are encouraged to join them.

Main Street Initiative:  Deb Krau reported that discussions regarding the development of a Day Center for the homeless are underway as well as discussion on what to do about the homeless congregating in our public restrooms.

Hyannis 375th Anniversary:  GHCA members continue to attend planning meetings and will keep our members updated on new developments.

The Cape Cod Symphony and Conservatory of Music & Arts sent out a survey regarding the development of a new performing arts center in the Hyannis area.  The survey is posted on our web site for all to fill out.

We are tentatively aiming for our next General Meeting for February 25.  The topic will be the new fire station.  Stay tuned for more details.
