We have completed our first experiment in online voting. Simply the fact that 60 people helped to make an important decision, versus a smaller number who are able to attend the quarterly CMCA meetings, makes the vote a success. Thank you for taking time to vote.
Please see the graphic below. A resounding majority voted in favor of old-growth shingles, and to raise funds to side the entire building.
The re-siding will be done in 2014 by a volunteer crew led by Randy Klobas, who has also agreed to volunteer his time. We have time to mount a fund-raising effort so the funds will be in place when the work commences.
Your CMCA board is researching the means by which your contribution may be tax-deductible.
A special thanks to Charles Ansorge who assisted with the online balloting.
Slide Area Continues to SlideThis picture taken by Olli Olekeinen shows an area just below the road bed for the closed section of the Loop Road where a significant amount of the hillside has slid into the canyon below.
Old Section of Loop RoadThe slide area is immediately below this old section of the Loop Road. A portion of the reconstructed Loop Road is sliding into the canyon at a pace where the road department can't keep up repairing it.
Here are some photos and videos taken during the tsunami drill.
