Also! A new installment from intrepid throwback reporter Biff Beluga and the LTVL crew…
“Live TV Live hits the streets once again to hear from long standing Lawrence business owners concerning the newly proposed 9th street development plan. Thoughts on skyrocketing property taxes, proposed loss of parking and concerns for use of city funds lead to an alternative plan proposal. Take it in and come share your thoughts this Tuesday, May 24th at Lawrence’s City Commission meeting.”
If you are signed up for alerts regarding the city’s Cultural Arts Commission, you probably received the following e-mail at 9:57 this morning, “A meeting has been scheduled for 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 30 in the City Commission room at City Hall, 6 East 6th Street, for a special meeting of Lawrence Cultural Arts Commission to review the 2017-18 National Endowment for the Arts “Our Town” grant application.”
However, the email alert containing the grant application was not sent until 2:07pm and does not seem to be readily available on the city’s LCAC landing page. For the sake of wider information dissemination and transparency, here is the link to the Lawrence Art Center’s grant application for 2017-18 Free State Festival, which includes requested additional funding and support from the City of Lawrence.
“The challenge for those trying to preserve the integrity of these newly desirable neighborhoods is to institute improvements that appeal to residents but repel developers.”
