Discussion and Action Items
Old Business
8. Biomass plant—update: Wade Wheeler gave an update. “Things are happening”.
They are still looking for funding. The plant will be hiring employees and will focus
on the North Fork community as much as possible. They anticipate starting
operating this year!
9. Legal advice re: NFCP bankruptcy: There is a bankruptcy proceeding in progress.
The CDC now has a holding company as an LLC, which may have a 36% equity (still
resulting in zero profits). In the meantime, the NFCP and individuals have been
sued. Dan Rosenberg is meeting with lawyers regarding this action. Our CDC
“directors and officers” policy provides protection against lawsuits. More information
is forthcoming.
10. Lot sales update: No new activity. There are 3 lots left plus the CDC office.
11. Site infrastructure update: John Reed was not present to report.

12. Rodent infestation in CDC building – siding replacement bid from Ron Woodman,

13. Office rental status: Office #4 ($140/mo.) available to rent. Nick DeHart will set up a
new Facebook account for the CDC to advertise. Nick will also help finetune the
CDC website. We can then advertise on these platforms.
14. Property Owner’s Association update: The POA is in operation. They have officers,
are looking at fees, and have determined that Lot 11 (being transferred to Boosters)
is exempt from POA fees.
15. Set date, intent and agenda for “What’s Next” meeting after Annual Meeting. Review
previous community suggestions:
The CDC Board will partner with other interested organizations, to determine
resources for projects. It was suggested that we determine the “umbrella” under
which we make decisions. The NF CDC mission statement is sufficient. A facilitator
for this process would be helpful. Both Christina McDonald and Jean Russell knew
of someone; they will check to see if that person is available.
