• 8:00am-12:00pm – First Farmers Market of the summer
• 8:30am-2:00pm – WellBatavia (I have registered the BBC for a booth in the fitness
village but we need volunteers to staff it. Anyone?)
8. One Washington Place
• The sidewalk along the Larson-Becker property may be closed during building demolition/construction of the parking lot. I’ve asked about possibly getting some bike racks installed in the new parking lot.
• The footbridge will remain open during demolition and construction.
• State Street will be open during the demolition of Larson-Becker but will be closed once One Washington Place begins construction (mid July?)
• Ideas for a promoting bicycling this summer due to construction?
