1) Policies and Procedures
Bayard reviewed Chapter V of the Art in Public Places document and explained that sections E K will be completed at a later date.
Jorgensen asked the PAC to review the document on murals that she created. Todd suggested the document be incorporated into the overall Policies and Procedures document. Jackson recommended that the subject of murals be fully discussed at the PAC level.
Two projects have been identified as possible locations for murals: Calle Guanjuato and the alley side of Q's. Wilkerson and Dvora suggested waiting to investigate the project until PAC has developed a mural process as any mural proposal violates the city sign ordinance.
Action: Seltzer to provide historical information on the creation of the sign ordinance.
There was much discussion on the draft letter/document to submit to council as an annual report.
Action: Jackson and Bayard to edit and finalize the report and send to Seltzer. Seltzer will include the report in the packet of materials the council receives in preperation for Council goal setting.
Seltzer requested the PAC identify a goal(s) to be submitted to the council for consideration during goal setting for 2004-05. The commission agreed to submit the following goals:
1) Allocate funds to complete the Public Art projects at the Gateway and on the Calle.
2) Allocate funds for the development of a Strategic Plan for Public Art in Ashland.
The PAC goals will be included in the Council goal setting packet.
