Reports and Roundtable

Traffic Bell (Whitney/Putnam)
The bell will return with some flexible yellow bollards around it. The town is reimbursed by the people who hit it (if they are caught).

Parking Lot (Whitney/Ralston)
Two hour parking sign refers to the spaces marked “2 hour” only, the rest of the lot is still available for commuter parking. Question on how to have it changed/balance adjusted.

How to coordinate more community stuff/cooperation, e.g., library garden, tool ending library.

Zipcar type space – perhaps at the church or in the municipal lot.

Sidewalk on Putnam – when can it be completed? When there is money in the town budget (or substantial change in property- otherwise town can’t force landowner).
