    3. Request and discussion to begin the process of selling EcoReality -- essentially, restart Plan Z. Jan to steward and to be compensated $15 per hour, retroactive to the beginning of December 2012.
      • Rudy expressed dismay and the hope that our continuing investor search will make this unnecessary.
      • Jan noted that both activities can go in parallel, but that getting the property ready for sale requires lead time, and so must be started soon to avoid missing the spring/summer real estate season.
