Master Plan Update
Bussell reported on the most recent draft of the questionnaire and asked for input on #4 under the header ‘Location”. Discussion centered on whether it was appropriate to invite suggestions for public art location since the decision is made by the council and PAC did not want to raise public expectations. It was decided to make a note at the end of the question that public art location must be approved by the council. Much discussion on the length of the questionnaire and distribution methods. M/S Longshore/Bussell to continue the discussions to the next mast plan committee meeting. Suggestion was made to include demographic questions including age range, length of residency and occupation.
Discussion about the format of the public meetings and the number of meetings. It was reported that the consultant Adrienne Graham attended the recent meeting and offered suggestions on how to conduct the meetings…café style setting.
It was agreed that the group needed to develop a Public Involvement Plan. Seltzer will write the first draft for review by PAC at next planning meeting to be held Monday, November 27 from 4:00 - 6:00 at Longshore’s house.
Longshore reported on public art opportunities with ODOT. Discussion identified follow up questions for ODOT as to how the PAC can be involved and the timeframe.
Adams to research public art and public bridges for next meeting.
