Winter oficred that communication with city council is done by the meeting minutes and that DMC have assigned city council members, and whether any commissioner is speaking as a citizen or commission member of the district. Koval offered that clarity of one's presence, either as a commissioner or as a citizen, must be made clear to avoid a conflict of interest. Koval continued that council assignments build a rapport and is good method to communicate to avoid getting lost in the shuffle. Weiss will handle meeting notifications and correspondence, particularly if you want something out to the rest of the commission. Winter suggested that some commissions discuss agenda items for future meetings.

Winter will have things pulled out of the ordinance and there is nothing prohibiting discussion. Llanes suggested the commissioners read the ordinances provided in their packets.

Pen-nits are expected in the third quarter sometime with construction beginning at that time and to take approximately 18 months. Pedersen discussed RTD. Pans are comprehensive enough to be brought to the Planning Board, entitlements are expected by the end of the year, with construction start date of the middle of 2012 and 20 months to complete construction.

Koval mentioned a site plan submission in April 2011 with a good deal of commercial use. Pawlowski will have a meaningful schedule in the next 30 days or so. Sutherland has started a face lift remodel on the Valmont front, Commons at Boulder Junction, with a Boulder Custom Interiors will occupy the back half of the building and the front will be a shared office concept with smaller tenants, lease just beginning, with 5 - 7 tenants and based on the new zoning to improved the use of the building. Winter offered that the plan is to create a master schedule for coordinating purposes. Hollister questioned the applying process and asked if a map would be constantly updated and Winter confirmed. AGENDA ITEM 10 Matters from Commissioners: Pawlowkki questioned the RTD schedule and if the terminal would be operational and Pedersen mentioned that it would be delivered at 15 months or so with construction finalizing thereafter.

IIagelin continued that fare boxes should be in all buses at the end of this year and beginning of next year (2012) and by the third quarter of 2012 begin pricing. Hagelin suggested that this commission be involved in RTD discussions. Pawlowski asked if RTD people could be at the next meeting for interface to deal with broad issue. Update on Smart Card and its development could be discussed; it will be a system wide card. Pricing will be based on data and not speculation. Llanes mentioned that one of the roles of the commission is centered on petitions by people that want to be included in the district and those that did not want to be in the district. The boards would hear these inclusions (this is usually a function of council) and it is subject to call up by council. There is a fornial petition process. Winter mentioned that Hagelin will take the lead in this process; it would be like a neighborhood pass program. Winter revealed that when the bus station goes in, the district may be able to get a Neighborhood Parking Program.

Pedersen questioned a Boulder Junction station and Hagelin responded that it would be in the program. Meeting adjourned at am Pedersen motioned for adjournment. Hollister seconded.
