# Concensus Proposals
* Zach: Allocating a small portion of nb funds for parts for the elevator, $400 per year. This would give people working to improve the space to not have a financial burden placed on them.

## Elevator
 
Zach: A bunch of people have been working on the elevator. I worked with Henner and a bunch of other people, and I updated the wiki. I'm still looking for help doing additional repairs. Wiki has ideas for additional improvements.

## Accasability to the space
 +
Zach: There is some work to be done. I updated the accasibility page on the wiki. It would be really greate if nb had more things avaliable for people with disabilities to come into the space. We don't have tactile or audio aids for people comming into the space. We also don't have bars in the bathroom, which are required by ada. I think it's very achievable for the space. 
 +
Zach: We should also have a meeting/event to educate others around disability, and little things that can be done to improve weelchair accassability in the space. There are some spaces that aren't ever going to be accessable, but some spaces could be easily improved.
 +
J: I def think there should be something around it. We should start a nice simple page
 +
Henner: I think we should have an event of some sort, were we discuss things that can be improved. And talk about the needs or disabled people. Then we can do-icraticly work to solve these problems. Guided by the people who need these changes. Even people who just come here for a week, this is a project that they could help work on at the space, and th
 +
ey can just do it.
 +
J: If anybody wants to put up an event, you can talk to us on slack and we'll set things in the NB meetup calander (excelence towards others required).
 +
Zach: Noisebridge is one of the most accessable spaces I know in sf.
 +
J:  Slack is a thing.  People who spend a lot of time in the space are welcome to ask around to get access to slack.  Tons of channels, Field trips, infosec, random, etc.

If any important discussion happens, it should be happening after forward progress is made during consensus.
