Greater Hyannis Civic Association Board Meeting Report – July 9, stuff cialis sale 2013

 The following topics were discussed at the July 2013 Board of Directors Meeting.

Correspondence: Lisa Dillon, Cape Cod commission provided a “final” draft report on roadway improvements from Beasrse’s Way to the Airport Rotary, to Willow Street, and Willow Street to the Yarmouth Town Line.   The estimate for the “tunnel” under the rotary is $28. million., with a total cost of $60.million   The estimated timeline for the area from Bearse’s Way to the rotary is 2 to 3 years,  the rotary is approximately 8 years way, and there is a need to do some property taking on Willow Street.  It was the consensus to invite Lisa Dillon to the October meeting and State Rep. Brian Mannal to our September Board Meeting.  President Cronin will handle the scheduling for these persons.

New Hotel on Ocean Street:  The Hyannis Water Board received a letter from Environmental Partners with reference that there is insufficient water pressure to support fire suppression for the older portion of this hotel.  It is estimated that to upgrade the water pipes on Ocean Street is $300,000 to $500,000.  There is sufficient pressure for the new addition which will be installed with a sprinkler system.

Membership:  President Cronin spent considerable time brainstorming ideas to improve our membership,, ie  open house, calling former members; weekly information in the media, hand out information at Cape League games,  (generally 600 Hyannis residents in attendance);  neighborhood canvassing;   etc.

Pat Richards, Chair N.H.N.  (Neighbors Helping Neighbors) reported that her area will hold a BBQ in September with some 75 attendees and will encourage these attendees to join the GHCA.

New Fire Station:  Gloria R. advised that they were going back to the drawing board to review where modifications could be made.  The next proposed meeting is 7/29/2013  at 5:00 PM.  The goal is to reduce the costs to $15 to $18M for this facility.

Hyannis Supporting Our Youth (HYSOY):  GHCA was advised that Moira Bundschuh will no longer coordinate portions of this program, especially the after school mentoring program which serves some 30+ needy kids.  Deb K will get specific background information to send to the Superintendent of Schools for her input.

4th of July Parade report:  The committee spent under budget for this event;  there were approximately 30+ kids in the bike parade segment, and 25 volunteers.

Fundraising:    Brad Pfiefer has volunteered to start this committee.  He is active with the Hyannis Harbor Hawks baseball program and has raised considerable sums for them.  The basics are that we need a purpose for this money and a “theme” for the fund raising events.

Neighborhood Watch:  Pat Richards requested advice on how to proceed with obtaining Neighborhood Watch signage for the area of Chase Street, South, Dartmouth, etc.    Key names in the Town were provided.

The “christening” of the new municipal water tanks on Straightway will be on July 25th at 2:00 PM.
