On Sunday, November 19, a conversation about parking was held. You can watch the video of that meeting here... A conversation about Durant House and open space was held on December 10.

Although the plans presented on October 22 by Satellite Affordable Housing Associates were only a broad view of what might be possible, they provided a helpful frame for identifying important issues that the church will need to consider in its discernment.
The final conversation on the Economics of Affordable Housing has been rescheduled to take place on January 28 at 11:45 am.
