- An independent group is working on changes to room draw, including a pilot 2 year program to give priority to families, remove random roommates, and waive cancellation fees. For questions please see https://hres.princeton.edu/graduates.
- Public Safety will conduct their annual safety walk soon. Will try to have some representation from Lawrence to highlight specific issues.
- We had overwhelmingly positive response to last month’s composting survey.
- Some residents are concerned that compost may attract animals, we do not anticipate that this will be a problem as this compost will include the same types of waste that are already in the dumpsters and in more secure bins.
- Joshua is working on looking for sources of funding for this program and coordinating with groups across campus.
Free and borrowed “stuff”:
- We discussed the possibility of starting a pilot of a free pile (place where residents can leave unwanted items to be claimed by other residents) during the summer.
- Ruth is working on creating a shared list where residents can borrow items within the community.
Community Share Agriculture (CSA) program:
- We are investigating the potential of hosting the Honey Brook Organic Farm CSA at Lawrence and sent out a poll to residents.
- There are many logistical issues such as the lack of place to leave the packages and the lack of management, there will be a lot involved if we hold it.
- Sam is leaving Princeton this summer, so we may hold an election for a new Garden Coordinator in May.
- For those who want to garden this summer, a garden info session will be held on March 24th.
- We discussed hosting an Easter egg hunt on March 31st (Saturday) morning on the grass in front of 14 Lawrence. Amitesh is going to make the budget.
- A note to all yoga participants – graduate students should be prepared to bring IDs as they’ll be checked. Non-students are still welcome to participate.
