The major agenda item is considering a second batch of requests for funding, for the following events:

At the meeting, it is also expected that the committee will make a recommendation/decision about Warren Street Seasonal Usage 2022. Does outdoor dining in the parking lanes return or does it not? Do the cement blocks return or do they get retired forever?



  1. Wow. Almost a full twenty-five hours' notice before a meeting late on a Friday afternoon -- expect many attendees do they? Such a cynical exercise in governance. Oh and doesn't the NYS Open Meetings Law require a one-week notice before a public meeting? Last I checked it did.

  2. Only one very easy decision. No more cement blocks.

  3. No cement blocks. Return of flower boxes for restaurants
