I can’t even afford to pay $50 per month, much less $75.
I joined on the promise of paying $50 per month and getting access to the space between set hours (“with an electronic locking system so I don’t have to be here to keep the door open” -Dave), with the promise of 24/7 access granted with a “keyholder” membership at a higher cost. It became clear though after only six months that there was a clear lack of initiative to proceed on this, if not juat so people were not leaving the space because they were fed up with the space being constantly inaccessible outside of Mondays, Wednesdays and perhaps Saturday. While admittedly I was not present at the meeting to voice these concerns I have noted this to others in recent months that going such a direction to a high-cost single tier system might make things easier it negatively impacts members who wish to sign up simply because they cannot afford their own workspace, myself included. $50 is a significant amount to me.
Loitering around outside until a keyholder did make an appearance was only mildly irritating the first few times (Vaughn, Cole and initially Dave do not count in this matter because they have their own lives and thus are not expected to be at the space “just because”) but this is something I can neither endorse or stand beside. I’m done.
