COMMENTS on Café presentation

CAFÉ SEATING INSIDE:

Option 1 

- Two levels [are] unsafe

- Only if it can be done at a much lower cost

Option 2  

- Is safer seating plan

- ONLY if ADA problem is resolved

Make no changes

- Not this year

- Make a vintage look

- Put money to living wages, please

- More discussion is needed

 

CAFÉ FENCING:

Option 1

- Too bulky – more expensive

- Unnecessary

Option 2

- Better, what provides shade?

- Ugly

 

GENERAL COMMENTS (not option-specific)

- This is completely unnecessary, and the money allocated for the proposed renovation should instead be use (sic) to bring ALL employees to a decent living wage of $15/hr

- Need increased production plan

- Need accessibility

- “Disgraceful” to consider this  . . . People first!

- Changes make it difficult for handicapped people

- Save money for wage (sic)

- I find these poorly conceived

- We need more member-[owners] as well

- Put money to staff

- A sink, better recycling, no plastic deli service, education on compostable flatware 

- I have no interest in option 1 or 2 for either inside or outside seating
