Dear UUCB members,
On March 26, the congregation approved Board Resolution 22-1, thereby authorizing and launching the future development of UUCB’s Freestone property in Sonoma County.
As a first step in this launch, the Board will establish the Freestone Oversight Committee (FOC) and is requesting nominations.
The new committee’s responsibilities are to
  • administer the direction of the congregation as expressed in the Resolution, which includes supervising and coordinating the work to meet the guidelines of the Resolution
  • be accountable in fulfilling its purpose to the Board of Trustees, which has the authority to direct the committee’s actions within the parameters of the Resolution
  • be inclusive of members holding a broad range of points of view regarding Freestone; the purpose of the FOC is to keep the work on Freestone in alignment with UUCB’s mission and goals
The committee will be composed, at a minimum, of
  • three members nominated by the Freestone Committee
  • one current or former member of the Stewardship Committee
  • at least one other congregant or Board Member
It is anticipated that the committee will meet at least once per month, with day and time to be decided at a later date.  Additional information regarding the scope of the FOC can be found in these documents.
Please send your nominations to by April 28th.  You may nominate yourself or another congregant.
In Beloved Community,
Helen Tinsley-Jones and Pier Sun Ho
Co-Presidents, Board of Trustees
