Unity North – Love It or List It
Everyone is invited to the first of a series of Town Hall Meetings beginning on August 6 at 1:30 pm in the Sanctuary. The Board of Directors including Rev. Richard and Executive Director Diane Glynn and the Finance Committee encourage you to make every effort to be there. After a presentation of ideas, you will be invited to participate in the discussion about the future of Unity North. Your voice is important and your thoughts are essential to our future.
What do you mean by “Love It or List It?”
- For many years Unity North has managed her finances well but continues to have high facility expenses. With our 20th birthday quickly approaching, our building and grounds are beginning to feel their age. Your Board of Directors and Finance Committee have been brainstorming solutions. On August 6th they will present to you, our Members, options for the next 20 years.
Are you selling the property?
- At this time, we are simply presenting all options to the Membership. As a Board, we have not made any decisions nor do we wish to influence our Membership in any way. This is a time for thoughtful conversation about the future of our facility.
- We recently replaced an HVAC unit at the cost of about $21,000. The roof needs replacement and there are 16 other HVAC units that have been repaired or will need repair or replacement in the coming years. While we do have savings, and we have a Legacy Giving program, we can no longer live “paycheck to paycheck” knowing that the building will continue to age.
When will a decision be made?
- August 6th with be the first of several meetings. We plan to have additional Town Hall Meetings every two weeks until September 17th. At that time we will be asking the Membership for a vote.
