Our current lease with Surgical Specialties is through May 2021. A committee has been established to look at market opportunities / options that may be available.  
A discussion was held, using the Building Summary Document as a framework and a current market status document shared by committee member Craig Soehren, to provide the Board with perspective on current and future options.

Action for funding:
In May of 2019, the Board set aside funding of $70,000 to be focused towards youth homelessness. The Community Impact Committee presented a recommendation to fund three programs (TeamChild, Excelsior Wellness Center, and Volunteers of America). Today, the Board approved this funding recommendation.
