Councilman Woodhull opened the meeting with a discussion of review of the actions since the last meeting. These included setting in motion the process moving of the fence under the interstate to abut the sidewalk. Chris announced that the city was at work on a panhandling ordinance.

Bill Lyons led a length discussion of the redevelopment process. The first task was arriving at a working set of boundaries. A long discussion ensued regarding the costs and benefits of a larger vs. smaller area. It was agreed that, generally speaking, the area would connect to the present Jackson Depot are on the North and take in the area between I275 on the West and Broadway on the East and reaching toward the East but not including the historic neighborhoods. The advantages and limitations of redevelopment areas was discussed. Kim Trent pointed to the necessity of stressing the "carrots" rather than the "sticks" that come with the redevelopment toolbox.

There was also discussion regarding the Broadway Hall of Fame intersection as well as on the development plans for St. John's Lutheran Church. Bill Pittman asked for more information regarding the grants for lighting in Old Gray cemetery area. Roger Nooe briefed the task force on the progress of the Ten Year Plan to Eliminate Chronic Homelessness task force.

The next meeting will be Thursday, Sept 21st at Noon at St. John's Lutheran.
