Public forum tomorrow on painting city curbs

Local News

Tomorrow night’s Cortland Common Council meeting starts with a public hearing on local legislation banning city residents from marking or painting curbs in their neighborhoods.

Some have done so over recent months to express their political or social views, which Mayor Brian Tobin has said creates traffic confusion for unfamiliar motorists looking to park in these areas.

Council members will also revisit discussion on sidewalk painting and potentially approve an officially policy on doing so.

At last month’s meeting, city leaders rejected a community member’s request for a pro-police mural on Court Street and voted to remove the “Black Lives Matter” design on Main Street.

They also banned any further street art projects until at least April 2021, which Tobin said would allow more time to develop a system that’s fair to all.

Tomorrow night’s meeting is set for a 7 pm start via Zoom. Click here for a link on the full meeting agenda.
