PROJECT UPDATES
  • Allison – Historic Markers Project
Commissioner Renwick updated the Commission on potential funding options.  She spoke to the Andrew-Lefevre design firm who may create the markers.  There was potential to utilize local artists and foundries.  She clarified the hub sculpture would be contemporary, site specific and historically themed. The plaques would represent the location where they were installed.
 
  • Sandy - Financial commitment for HM project
The Beautification project allocated $11,000 to the Historic Commission that possibly was no longer available. Chair Friend intended to get the full Commission’s opinion on whether Public Arts Commission funds could be used to match funds from the Historic Commission.  The City Council would have to approve utilizing the funds for the Historic Markers Project.  She thought the funds from both Commissions should cover the markers and the hub sculpture for more flexibility.
 
Commissioners Friend/Stallman m/s to agree to partner with the Historic Commission on the Historic Markers Project and to recommend matching Public Arts Commission funds this year not more than $15,000 contingent on Historic Commission matching that amount.  Voice Vote: all AYES. Motion passed.
