T112 03.CommunicationReport from the President

Minutes note: Mr. Pérez discussed the following items and made note of particular areas of interest for the Board: President Pérez asked Warren Jones, Travaux Vice President of Construction, to speak on the May construction update on buildings 2.2 and 2.3 at Westlawn, including information about Manpower, Project Status & Schedules, a Construction Bulletin Summary, Requests for Information and Budget Summaries for each building, Safety Reports and Photos. Building 2.2 is currently scheduled to be finished in November. Building 2.3 is still behind schedule after winter, which also increased the costs, due to snow removal, etc., and is looking to be finished in February or March of 2020. The Directors commended Mr. Jones and the staff on the presentation of the report. Director Hurtado suggested a Change Order for Building 2.3’s schedule due to the weather, adding that it is a legitimate change, and proffers transparency. President Pérez also noted that Victory Manor is fully occupied, including an agreement with the Center for Veteran's Issues for six of the units. President Pérez added that the first rent check for those units was recently received. President Pérez invited the Directors to attend the HACM Annual Meeting to tour the building, or to contact the Travaux staff whenever they would be able to tour it. President Pérez shared a document from MKE United, a coalition looking to expand the strong development work in the downtown area throughout Milwaukee. The goals of the organization strongly parallel the goals of HACM and Travaux, and he hopes that Travaux could be a tool to address the organization’s goals. He added that these kinds of efforts inform the conversations that this board and organization pursue, and that Travaux adds to the community. Director McCarthy added that one point of conversation should be the strength HACM offers these kinds of efforts in reaching out to and providing the community with ways to become involved in these opportunities. President Pérez and Director Wagner discussed HACM's Section 3 program, and how it is now seen as a model, with the Midwestern Regional HUD office asking HACM to work with other housing authorities around the country. Director Wagner also mentioned the positive comments he is hearing about the possible Convent Hill West development and its goals for the community.
