Update on Porchfest
Running similar to last year; only change: drawing a tighter geographic box around possible host porches -- make it more concentrated
BL: Harder to find new porches?
Registration update: 64 bands, 46 porches in Merrymount, Squantum, Wollaston Hill
Wally then ran through remaining events for the year
What else do we want to prioritize for the year?
Development is a big topic (whether too much or not enough)
Possibly have Mayor’s Office come to explain Urban Renewal District
Explain new parking enforcement
Explain new recycling requirements
Explain loss of trees
In previous years, “gas leaks” was on the agenda.
