Mike suggests we explore requirements/standards for determining eligibility for certain "historical building" funding sources. We don’t want to inadvertently make changes to the building that will disqualify us for possible funding under one of these programs.

Following this, we will reconvene to discuss the additional materials some committee members will gathering his coming week (tax maps, building plans, topos, etc.)
