Beautification committee meeting: February 2011

Post by jbm32206 » Sun Jan 23, 2011 8:10 am

I would like to have a meeting in February, to come up with a project...please let me know what day of the week and time of day you're most likely to be available to meet. I would like to have a meeting in the first week of the month, most likely at Three Layers.

I have a few emails addresses of people who have been involved in the past and wanted to stay informed. They aren't necessarily Facebook or forum active people. I'll send them to you after confirming they still wish to be notified.

Great list! I would love to see a shopping car tower or something like this on the empty lot at Hubbard and 8th :)

Regarding the medians: Will you check with the city on that? Just to make sure you are not violating any laws while working on the median, in particular if you install picket fence. I think there is a law that everything associated with Main Street has to look blighted.
