T289 02.CommunicationReport from President

Minutes note:  President Hines informed the Board that the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee (HACM) Board of Commissioners gained two new members - making the total number of Commissioners six. Mr. Hines added HACM anticipates adding a seventh member to the HACM Board of Commissioners in the future. One of the questions the HACM Board will be looking at is which development projects to pursue after Westlawn Renaissance is completed in the next year. Mr. Hines informed the Board that two closings had occurred last week: Westlawn Renaissance V (WRV) and Westlawn Renaissance VII (WRVII). Mr. Hines introduced Warren Jones, Travaux Inc.’s Vice President of Construction, to relay in greater detail the final phases of both projects. Mr. Jones stated the loans for the final two phases of the replacement housing closed. Mr. Jones reported that WRV, called Building 3.1, is a single building with 44 units, located on 64th Street and Sheridan Avenue. Building 3.1’s elevator shaft is complete and the underground plumbing has been started. Mr. Jones stated WRVII includes Building 3.4, an 18-unit multi-family building, located just south of the corner of 60th Street and Silver Spring Drive. Mr. Jones reported that Building 3.4’s footings have been dug, the frost walls have been excavated and the pouring of the concrete will start this week. WRVII also includes 79 townhome units, which are located on the western most part of the site, adjacent to 68th Street, between Silver Spring Drive and Birch Avenue. Mr. Jones stated the construction on the townhomes will start the following week. Mr. Hines concluded the President’s Report by speaking about the HACM Employee Appreciation Event that had occurred the prior week. Mr. Hines stated that two divisions at the event are part of the Travaux instrumentality: Modernization & Development and Property Management. The intent of the event was to say “Thank you” from the Senior Staff to the Travaux and HACM employees for helping to keep HACM services open and operating. They provided essential services, through all of the challenges of the pandemic; even as staff was personally affected, they stepped up to the plate.
