  1. Collaborative Learning Project
    1. Ann: DOT should generate a simple form
    2. Joel: refine the street closing policy
    3. Steven: DOT has too many sub-categories making it difficult for the public and professionals to navigate. Should there be a DOT Ombudsman
    4. Scott: Standardize a Form

                                Process, Chain of Command, define the task

    1. Steven: Clarify the EIDC mandate as it seems out of sync with DOT
    2. Maurece and Scott: the police department radically changed its model and includes many lateral meetings so that all department heads are aware of what the rest of the department is doing. DOT needs a head. Departments function independently at this point. The most important thing is for a Template to be agreed upon within DOT that will allow people to navigate the department.
    3. Susan: Maurece will take these suggestions to the October 19 th CLP meeting at USC and work out the parameters with the other NC's involved in the MOU. At the original meeting at USC we all agreed that Planning should be involved at some point in the process.    

Meeting adjourned: 8:30pm
