Adoption of Agenda and Approval of Minutes:

Motion: Approve tonight’s agenda and the minutes of the 05/02/2016meeting.  (Moon-Hinderscheit ) Passed.

Chair Report: Kim contacted DSI regarding Jim Fowler's concern regarding DSI not allowing him to place signs in his yard with the intent to advertise for space rental for the Fair.  Kim’s point was that Jim Fowler was advertising his property for rent, which is allowed under City regulations. DSI's response is that he is allowed two square feet of signage and not more.


Recreational Fires: Tammy Jenkins was present to discuss her concern regarding recreational fires. Tammy had forwarded published and research-based information about health and safety aspects of burning wood in populated areas.  Kim suggested that he will talk to our city Councilmembers to gauge the level of their support. Other options are petitions or an online survey. Tammy and Kim will work on developing survey questions. Michael indicated that survey and background information need to be as neutral as possible. Michael also pointed out that a petition would be more powerful than a survey.


New Business: Michael has compiled a list on ongoing topics and action items for Land Use.


Adjourn: Motion to adjourn the meeting at 7:50 p.m.


Next Meeting: The next meeting is Monday, August 1, 2016, at the Street Car Station.
