Jill discussed the report from Downtown Assessment. This will need to be a collaboration between our group, city, Rotary. Joan mentioned we need to find our focus for this group. Do we need to do events? Do we only need to focus on projects? Maybe we shouldn’t be spending fundraised money on events. Alison said if we have a sub group take the events over (pending success the next 2 bands), the events should be able to sustain themselves. Bring your thoughts to next meeting.

Boy Scouts are making flower pots for around the Square.

Sara asked about the barn quilts for empty buildings. We can’t do anything until the city has ownership.
