2.      Midway Park Sign—Goepp and Bradley are in discussion about the sign and will report back to the board about it. They are working on a feasible solution. Bradley has a contact for a person who makes and repairs signs and would like to get a recommendation from him on the best solution.

Parsons reported that the arena had been cleaned up and that Durham Little League had replaced the flag. Ben Snow had been in contact with the ACS crew and had gotten them out to do some weed trimming. The donation of $40.00 was posted to Durham Little League Account with DRPD.

3.      Parsons spoke about the email we had received from Butte County Election office requesting the use of the Memorial Hall for 4 days from October 30-November 4 to meet with public members. In the second email we received a plea with the statement from Gov. Newsom to social distance and that the Memorial Hall would be great for social distancing. After some discussion DRPD was asked to give them suggestions of DHS, Durham Library, Durham Guild, by having access the evening of Nov. 1 thru the 4th or DRPD portables and requesting to know approximately how many public members accessed the Durham area Polling place.
