the city is proposing changing the funding model for nonprofits from general operations support to specific priority funding. she says there hasn’t been sufficient community input.
“we have to look at outcome.”
some people who’ve been funded in the past may not continue to get funding. everyone should be focused on the needs of the people who are supposed to be getting served.

missy creasy from NDS says the existing code doesn’t clearly define dwelling unit, for example a fraternity house isn’t clearly a dwelling unit currently.
if council adopts the amendment, she asks them to include an exemption for her client.
missy says they want to add 5 units, but would only be able to add 4 if the frat house is a dwelling unit.
