Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our main goal will be to have an artist and final drawing/mural for the Jose Artigas Plaza. We will take that drawing and work with the artist to write a project grant as well as other fundraising. Another goal is that there will be good attendance and participation from the committee during this process.We will keep a sign-in sheet from all meetings. We will move on to write a project grant and do additional fundraising.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We had 8 people attend the 10-7-14 meeting and nine people attend the 11-27-14 meeting. We also have a large email list of people interested in which we received feedback.
