Milwaukee Makerspace Board of Directors Meeting - September 16th, 2021
Norwich lease update
Current lease 8,864 sq ft for Shop Space
Actually currently occupies: 9,046 sq ft
That is an increase of 182sqft, or $68.25 a month
Sarah, Ellen (Laser Champions) and Tom G. propose: 9,260 sq ft
That is a Total increase of 396 sq ft, or $148.50 a month
MMS needs to add another 5,000 sq ft to space's general liability policy to cover subletting. The first 5,000 buffer has been allocated already.
This will cost the space $0.01 per sq ft, the space makes $0.04 income per sq ft on the sublets.
This would also be a lease modification, but the sublet lease does not obligate the space to pay for any space not being rented.
Ceramics area requests:
Pallet racking: $32/month
Expand to the west wall: for more work space for hand building: $161/month
Tim will send email to membership to outlining increase lease $ amount to meet current square footage used and increasing liability insurance.
