Discussion around reducing OAH to only 4 Fridays in 2018. There is currently no budget, so we have not been able to secure bands or make other arrangements.

    City is still waiting on Traffic Study to be completed. City is being educated on what a “Community Benefits Agreement” is.

    Colleen to draft several statements in response to what could happen with FC Cincinnati in Oakley (i.e. draft requesting more information from FC; draft notifying community what really happened over the Thanksgiving holiday and where we’re at today; draft notifying residents of town hall-style meeting and we intend on pushing for a Community Benefits Agreement with FC.)
