Chair Bussell called meeting to order at 8:20 a.m. Markell/Edson/s approval of minutes with corrections.
Property owner Gerry Garland has requested displaying public art on his private property located at 199 East
The PAC is in general agreement of accepting on loan the piece of sculpture from Kevin Christman and will formally vote on the proposal in July when all the documents are in place including the “letter of request” from the Garlands, the legal agreement between the Garlands and the City, the map of the property showing the location of the piece, a description of the piece including size, material etc.
Once the PAC formally approves the siting of the art on private property the recommendation will go to the city council for final approval.
Buseell reported on the monthly meeting with the Mayor who is asking Commission to develop goals. Bussell commented that the PAC goals are listed in the Master Plan and many have been completed or are in the works. Bussell asks each commissioner to come up with two goals 1) realistic 2) dream goal.
