NY Main Street Design Review Committee:Marcia and Julie- Benches and waste cans have been delivered and are being kept in storage until spring when they can be installed. Baxter’s is coming along. A new sign design is needed. The original design was too tall and did not meet code. Julie presented a design sketch that she will discuss with the committee and Johnson City Planning Board.

Cruize-Inz: Corinna- $250 UHS sponsorship is confirmed. She will contact others. We need to get plastic signs for this year. There is an $81 balance from last year. Some bands have been contacted. We need to secure them soon.

Carousel Day: Julie- We need to secure someone to do parking. Several recommendations were discussed to streamline procedures, and minimize the number of volunteer hours required to coordinate the day while still maintaining the integrity of the event. We are unsure of sponsors at this time.
