    • June 28th – Gino’s Café & Sports Bar has approached the City of Klamath Falls about changing the zoning on their adjacent property. Isabel encourages everyone to attend the meeting to hear what the proposed changes are.
  7. Public Comment
    • In the discussion about the Gino’s zone change, it was brought up that the crosswalk that used to connect the two sides of East Main is no longer there. It has been noted at previous meetings that many youth take that way to get to Ponderosa Middle School. It would be nice to see that intersection improved and less of a hassle overall. It would be nice to be able to turn onto East Main St. from Main St. (heading West) as an example. Cars cut through the parking lot on the corner because of this intersection, causing a dangerous situation.
  8. Adjourn – Meeting adjourned by President Rodriguez at 6:38pm
