There were a total of 5 member at the meeting.
Some of the owners of the potential rental space do not like the price of $650/month that is in the original lease. Tom talked to Bryce last week and offered to up the price to $750/month. Royce will contact the landlord tomorrow to try and renegotiate the lease.
We need to change the member agreement to allow guests of ages 10 and over into the space. There were not enough people at the meeting to vote on the change. We will need to vote on this at a different meeting.
Royce removed our facbook group. We now only have a facebook page. Our official facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/mkemakerspace. If you haven’t already done please “like” our facebook page.
Rich has agreed to build the wall once we get the space rented.
Sean, Tom, Ron, and Rich attended this meeting. Not much happened at this meeting. We are waiting to to hear back from the landlord. Tom is trying to get a hold of the landlord to get the lease signed. Once we get the the lease signed we will need to build the wall.
We should have official confirmation on our insurance policy tomorrow.

We will not be pursuing the rental space in Wauwatosa. We are actively looking to find another space to rent. There is a possible space on 109th street just south of Mayfair. Tom will try to get in touch with the landlord.
Ideally we are looking for a rental space in the west Milwaukee or West Allis area in the 94 corridor within 1 mile of the freeway. Members are encouraged to looks for spaces that met these requirements and post information about them to the mailing list.
Rental Space Requirements:
- Man door
- Garage Door
- 2,000 sq. feet
- 24×7 access
- 3 phase power
- $3,000 for 6 months($500 per month)
We now have an official Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Milwaukee-Makerspace/122428831137990?v
We created a 45 day Craig’s LIst ad with the above rental space requirements.
At the next meeting we will hopefully tour some potential spaces. Watch the mailing list for updates about which spaces we will be looking at next Tuesday.
