1. Saks and I originally joined PPAC with an agreement that the basement would be used by the two of us as an art studio. Future use of the space by other members of PPAC would be by our invitation, to ensure the space continued to serve its function as an art studio that was conducive to our respective art practices. In short, we were charged to be the stewards of the basement art studio.
The needs of PPAC and its members have changed. Saks and I are willing to compromise in an effort to accommodate various members' and PPAC's needs for basement space.
Care for the basement space reflects a care for those who use this space to support their livelihoods and artistic practices.
I have proposed a certain allotment of space for me and Saks. That space is less than the amount originally allotted, and it has been marked with a red line for clear demarcation. A portion of the remaining basement space has been allotted to Jerone and Amelia, and another portion has been allotted to David. Space that has been allotted to me or Saks that is not currently in use/is empty is not available for use by any other member/resident for any projects or storage, nor can be used, even temporarily, by a member with an existing allotment in the basement.
If these allotments, and the conditions shared above are acceptable, they will not to be changed without a future Loomio proposal.
The "dungeon," as it is affectionately called, has been allotted for use by David and PPAC for first-floor supplies and equipment. Additionally, there are 3 shelves in the basement where supplies are allotted for PPAC. There are also cleaning supplies for PPAC on the landing. Those areas -- the dungeon, the 3 shelves, and the landing --
are the only places where PPAC materials/equipment/supplies may be kept in the basement.
Other than the Dungeon, where David has use of the space, these spaces are not to be used as storage for individual members' or residents' possessions. Nor should members or residents ask Jerone, Amelia, David, Saks or Qinza to use their space to store materials, supplies, or equipment in the basement, as the additional clutter is not conducive to our art practice.
New members/residents may not take up space in the basement without a Loomio proposal, since having additional people in the space can alter the allotment of space and the environment that is necessary for our art practice.

Sometimes it is important to respect the redline on the ground. It is is a sign that someone is reaching their personal limit and boundary, and setting a firm boundary. In prpr, out of our desire for collaborative and being open minded, I see this is a strong request to honor the need to have their work space respected in a particular way.
