Oct. Operations Meeting

CTC's Operations Committee meets every fourth Monday of the month at 6 pm in the Community Center Meeting Room (first floor), with October 28th kicking off the season!

All are welcome to attend one or multiple meetings, as dependent on your interests, initiatives, and availability! If you wish to receive the email prior to the meetings with the respective agenda and topics, please contact

Now merged with our former Landscape and Environmental Design Task Force, this collaborative committee promotes policy initiatives that are safe, resourceful, and sustainable, in addition to enhancing aesthetic, cost-effectiveness, and non-harmful methodologies for our grounds.

Our co-op committees promote community building and directly influence co-op decision-making in various sectors of our multifaceted co-op. This enables our committee members to develop a comprehensive understanding of the co-op’s operations, strong leadership skills, and an enhanced ability to think critically.

First Task: Parking Policies

Until more detail arrive via the email list, our Board of Directors recently tasked the Operations Committee to look at the current Parking policies and evaluate possible changes to address resident concerns and suggestions. The following link expresses the current discussion and questions for your review before the first meeting:

The Board would like a report and recommendation for a new policy from the committee by the January 2020 meeting.
