Petition for Referendum on the Cloyne Court Discussion
Authored by Samantha Strimling, member of Cloyne Court
This is a petition to allow the full membership of the Berkeley Student Cooperative to determine the appropriate timeline and course of action for the construction of a plan determining the future of Cloyne Court, and the related mitigation of risk for the entire Berkeley Student Cooperative (BSC).
In specific terms: a vote in favor of this referendum is a vote to preclude any action that comprehensively effects, changes, or disrupts the present community at Cloyne Court until a period of at least 30 days after approval of this proposal is officially certified. This 'cooling off' period will allow for a sufficient and complete amount of time to properly discuss and decide the comprehensive specifics of a plan governing the future of Cloyne Court, the BSC, and our organization's diverse community.
In short, this is a referendum to allow the necessary time for our cooperative community to arrive at a cooperative solution to our collective challenges.
