A special meeting of the Ann Arbor public art commission has been called for Thursday, March 7 starting at 4:30 p.m. in the fifth floor conference room at city hall, 301 E. Huron. The possibility of a special meeting had been discussed at AAPAC’s regular meeting on Feb. 27, 2013. The main agenda item will likely be a possible memorial to Coleman Jewett – a bronze Adirondack chair at the Ann Arbor farmers market. Although a donor has come forward with funding for the project, it has not yet been formally accepted by AAPAC.
Separately, two meetings related to the city of Ann Arbor’s parks and open space programs were canceled this week. A subcommittee of the park advisory commission – focused on downtown parks – was set to meet Tuesday, March 5 at 4 p.m. That meeting was canceled on Tuesday morning. The next subcommittee meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 26 at 5 p.m. in the second-floor council workroom at city Hall. The full commission holds its next regular meeting on Tuesday, March 19 at 4 p.m. in council chambers.
Also canceled this week was the monthly meeting of the Ann Arbor greenbelt advisory commission, which had been set for Thursday, March 7 at 4:30 p.m. That group’s next meeting is scheduled for April 4.
