Rich Hitchcock from Hitchcock Designs was at the meeting to discuss the Second Street project. There was discussion about what elements to include and what to leave out as the Village cannot afford to get everything at this time. Landscaping has been put in to start covering the apartments. Hitchcock recommended getting the bidding process started so that next spring the project can get started right away.
Discussion was that the turnaround would be flat with no water feature. If a water feature is added it could be in the park as an interactive feature for kids. Extend the sidewalk on the north side of the street to give those businesses more sidewalk. There was some discussion about trash. Hitchcock said consolidated trash is hard to get businesses to agree with, but once it is done, it works very well. Trustees werent sure if that would work realistically. There was discussion about stamped asphalt verses pavers with snow plowing.
Hitchcock was told to focus the bidding on the hard surfaces and underground work. Electric solutions are important for vendors, music, and lighting etc.
Motion by Martin, seconded by Dole to adjourn the meeting at 6:45. Motion approved 4-0. Trustees Boyce and Crockett were absent.
Minutes respectfully submitted by Alisa Blanchette, Village Clerk,
