proposal on use of cafe space by adbc
the previous attempt at using the cafe space broke down, in marcus's opinion, because of the difficulty in getting building resources available to the cafe space, such as plumbing. marcus supposes that a simpler cafe based on a push-cart would be simpler to get going, and allow for income generation which would then segue into improvements for a permanent cafe. adbc manages the cafe space as a program as a pathway for employment. abdc (art bison design co-op) is an intersectional feminist co-op focused to a certain extent on screen printing. This proposal was proposed at the omni delegates meeting, so we may be able to get more detail from notes taken at that meeting. Operation of the cafe, screen printing workspace, and screen printed merchandise sales would take up the entire front room of the omni. abdc could also manage requests for other usage of the front room space.
Feedback from Matt: several groups have previously committed to administration of common space booking and usage, but this has not yet been a success. Instead of attempting to take over the administration, what about recommitting to having some of your members serve on relevant omni committees.
More from adbc: we could manage the front door. also, most of the time, marcus would be the one running the cafe, watching the door, etc.
CCL proposal from Patrik
There is a proposal. It was discussed. There didn't seem to be a consensus.
