By motion of Bill O'Hara Felker and second of Pam Frantz, the Board approved the following by the M/PC:

The Executive Board endorses the Vision and Program Committee's continued discussion of the idea of seeking "seed" funding that will allow WayNet to partner with selected WayNet members and develop content on local Wayne County artists. A partner institution (presumably a 501(c)3 classified organization) would serve as lead for a grant from an appropriate source and the funding would be used to develop the content and create a website within WayNet on the topic.

The initial project is intended to demonstrate what can be done and would serve to "bootstrap" further development of content through other grants.
The next steps to be taken include:

  1. Seeking member/partners.
  2. Developing a statement of the subject scope of the project.
  3. Developing a plan of action.
  4. Drafting a grant proposal.
  5. Seeking Exec. Committee approval for a grant proposal.
