  7. Public Comment
    • Sustainable Klamath has decided not to purchase the lot with the community garden. This was after getting input from MNA. Sustainable Klamath is also looking for a new home for the tool library. Isabel has encouraged the leadership of Sustainable Klamath to consider a property in Mills Addition. It could serve as both the tool library and community garden.
    • The food pantry will open next week at the Nutrition Hub. Yay!
    • Klamath Works is considering developing the former little league fields in Mills Addition. Several ideas have been put out there, including low-cost housing.
    • Thank you! to the Youth Without Borders volunteers who helped with our first official East Main beautification project.
