MINUTES OF January 9, 2007




Meeting was called to order by Kathy Shortsleeves at 7:00 pm. Members of the Recreation Committee who were present include Kathy Brown, Jenny Parker, and Mark Poljacik.


Recreation Director Randy Adams was also present.


Recreation Committee members Scott Eugair, Michele Cioffredi, Rob, Ketcham, and Mark Winslow were not present.





The minutes of December 12, 2006 were read and accepted. K. Shortsleeves made the motion to accept the minutes as read.


M. Poljacik seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously.




Members of the Recreation Committee read the Directors Report.





Park Benches for the Recreation Area

R. Adams informed the Recreation Committee that he had called Griswold's Masonry to find out how much the concrete ends for the benches cost. He was told $106 per concrete end or $212/pair. M. Poljacik asked if the Recreation Department would be willing to place a brass sign on a bench to recognize a company if that purchased the bench. R. Adams stated that he felt that it would be a fine idea to permanently thank the businesses who purchase these for the Recreation Department. It was the consensus of the Recreation Committee that the Recreation Department build one bench to have on display so possible sponsors could see first hand how the benches looked. K. Brown suggested, again, that the Recreation Director should ask the Pittsford Day Committee if they'd be willing to purchase a bench or two for the Recreation Department. R. Adams agreed and stated that he would ask the Pittsford Day Committee about it at their next meeting.


Town Report

R. Adams provided in the Recreation Committee member's packets a copy of the final draft of the 2006 Town Report. K. Brown indicated that she was pleased with the way the report was written. She particularly liked the approach in which the Recreation Director highlighted how beautiful the Recreation Area is and how lucky Pittsford is to have such a wonderful space. K. Brown felt that it was more important to inform the residents about how attractive the Recreation Area is rather than discuss specific programs offered and/or the number of individuals that participate in them.


Town Band Concept

Provided in the Recreation Committee member's packets was a copy of the Town Wide Invitation that will be in the January 2007 Town Newsletter. A meeting has been set (January 29, 2007 at the Town Offices @ 6:30 pm) to see if there is any interest in the community to begin a Town Band.




2007 Pittsford Day Celebration

Recreation Director, R. Adams mentioned that the Pittsford Day Committee will begin meeting soon to start planning the 2007 Pittsford Day Celebration.



All Other Business

J. Parker asked the Recreation Committee members if there ever has been any discussion of creating any bike paths in Pittsford.



With no further business to discuss, M. Poljacik made the motion to adjourn the meeting.


J. Parker seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously.


The meeting adjourned at 8:00 pm.


Respectfully Submitted,


Randy Adams, Recording Secretary 

Rob Ketcham, Chairman
