  4. NIEBNA Projects and Status Reports

    1. Appointment of a new Downtown Neighborhoods Alternate Director on Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership Board of Directors — This position is now vacant due to resignation of the incumbent. By agreement among the Downtown Neighborhoods (NIEBNA, NLNA, MHNA, DMNA), the Director and Alternate Director should not come from the same side of the River. Since the current Director (Carletta Sweet) is from the west side of the River (DMNA or NLNA), the Alternate Director should come from thew east side of the River (NIEBNA or MHNA).  Last time, the selection of the Alternate Director was delegated to a three-person ad hoc committee consisting of the current Downtown Neighborhoods Director (Carletta Sweet from DMNA) and one member appointed by each of the MHNA and NIEBNA Boards (Edna Brazitis represented NIEBNA). [Board Action — how should we proceed in this matter?]
