    • Create a Space Planning Safety and Fitness Committee tasked with inspecting the new space and presenting a report to the board with recommendations regarding items which may be necessary or prudent to complete before the space is occupied. This should include items such as, safety issues, lighting, cleaning, painting, etc. Where possible estimated costs and time required should be included. This committee would concern itself only with the space as it is, not with infrastructure requirements that may arise during space planning. The committee members will be decided by the committee chair, name goes here. It is suggested that the committees would have no less than 3 and not more than seven members. It is requested that the committee provide at minimum a biweekly status report.
