Interest Bearing Account proposal by PMPO Treasurer:

PMPO Notification About Major-use-permit Applications:

Jim Hamerly has placed the PMPO on the county list to receive copies of permit applications.

Yale / La Jolla Indian Reservation Cedar Creek project:

Libby Getzoff asked Jim Hamerly to place the PMPO on the list for notifications by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Tom Burton requested that Jim ask Jewel Resources Chair LaVonne Peck for a copy of the letter approving the Yale property fee-to-trust transfer that she said that she received last week.

Commercial Helicopter Operations:

Phillips Reid said his original goals for the ``helipad'' were to use it for his personal travel and to make it available at no charge for emergency use. The parcel is 4.17 acres, zoned ``residential-commercial' but in fact cannot be used for a residence. He said it could be used for a church, commercial property, or a civic center. He is now interested in selling the land, but with support by the Fire Department the original plan might still be possible.

The meeting was adjourned at 1:32 P.M.

Michael E. Pique, Secretary.
