continued McCormick said he wanted to thank everyone who attended First Weekends in Plattsburgh in June and July.
“We hope they had as much fun as we did,” McCormick said. “We are currently working on the event for August, and September. We will have more events and musicians/artists, and businesses getting involved for the future events.”
Currently the volunteer group is getting a plan together to request City Hall Place be closed off longer for the First Weekend in August.
“We understand that the councilors have some reservations about closing the street down,” McCormick said. “We believe that the turnout for this event has proven that the closure of City Hall Place is not only reasonable but necessary for the safety of individuals attending the event.
“We ask anyone who agrees to join us at the Common Council Meeting July 18 at 5:30 p.m. to show your support for the closure of City Hall Place during First Weekends,” McCormick said.
To participate in the planning for upcoming First Weekends, call McCormick at 420-2224 to find out dates and times for First Weekend meetings.
