  • The subcommittee members had the following comments for the fourth draft of the map:
  • The members would like to eliminate the farmstand indicators.
  • The Members would like to alter the shop area on Basin Road to show three separate small blocks (with no indents and two would have three shops and one with one shop) each represented by the smaller shopping bag icon.
  • The members stated that they like the Chilmark word font but would like to confirm that Max King did not have a specific idea for utilizing the specific text that she utilized. Mr. Cook also noted that the large Chilmark word is not in italic whereas other names are in italics.
  • Mr. Cook suggested that the finished product be the size of four ledger size pieces of paper, 22x 34 for example, and post those in the bus shelter at the Park n’ ride at the Tabor House lot.
  • The members like this idea and asked Ms. Christy to determine the space available on the interior side walls of the shelter above the seating level.
  • Ms. Malkin suggested that the map at the Comfort Station should be the extra large version and be in a free-standing map holder.
  • The subcommittee members determined that they would like to present the finished map to the BOS on the July 11, 2017. Ms. Christy was asked to send the BOS a note, with the finished map, to ask to be placed on their agenda for the 11th.
