Public Arts Commission Informational Working Meeting – July 15, 2021
Due to unavailability of the City of Poughkeepsie Common Council chamber the regularly scheduled monthly meeting of the Public Arts Commission (PPAC) may not take place in-person as scheduled. This will be replaced with a PPAC Informational Working Webinar with the agenda updated to defer topics for which public comment and voting are necessary.
Please register for the City of Poughkeepsie PPAC Informational Webinar on July 15, 2021, 6:30 PM EDT.
Meeting Registration: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYrce6tpjMrGd1ITSOv3LvLNJjKLWY_wTZ7
