Community room demolition begins despite concerns

Demolition has begun in the community room, despite cooperators’ wishes that the project be delayed for more input.

The $73,000 project was approved by the board over objections from the house committee. Cooperatively Yours held a working session last week to get ideas for the room’s design as well as the policies that govern its use. A quick survey of cooperators showed support for the basic project outline but also concern for the lack of resident input.

Those ideas and concerns were forwarded to board members — including Larry Goldman who has taken the lead on this project — but have been met with no response except the sound of demolition.
