Mr. Young thanked Mr. Galli for his summary of projects.
Mr. Galli stated that he would like to speak to the Ohio Department of Transportation about a potential Lake Road project.

Mayor Sutherland noted that they have a very good relationship with the representative of the Ohio Department of Transportation. Mr. Clark stated that they would like to be able to expand it for bicyclists. Mr. Young noted that four years ago the residents on the north side of Lake said no to a bike path.
