    2. Motion, Discussion and Vote on Resolution 2015-21 concerning Resident Entry Permit Process for event parking in City. (Council President Ratchford -Posted 5/19/2015)

    2015 Resident Entry Permit Proposal
    (excerpt from Progress Report to the Planning Commission 4-27-2015)
    Following a recommendation of the National Park Service Transportation Review, resident response to a permit process for the historic district was evaluated for Separation Day 2014.
       A proposal for a temporary resident entry permit to be offered to residents within the historic district and displayed, during the two day street closures was submitted to City Council and was approved.  Appendix G. Resolution 2014-29 
       The entry permit process was well received by residents and found helpful by the traffic control personnel. Over 400 permits were issued. Most residents (>50%) who elected to obtain a permit, live within 2 blocks of the Court House.
       A more permanent hang tag entry resident permit for the historic district is being developed by the City. Implementation is expected prior to Separation Day 2015. This process is again voluntary, 2 entry tags may be issued per household with appropriate identification of residency. There will be no cost to residents. The entry tags can be used for all city events in which there may be street closures or traffic control. These events may include: Tall Ships on the Delaware, anticipated in late June 2015, Bike races, and Runs, the New Castle Antique Show, Art on the Green, Spirit of Christmas.
       The response and effectiveness of this process for residents and traffic control will continue to be monitored.

    Executive Session: to discuss AFSCME contract negotiations.

    Tuesday, June 16, 10:00 – 4:00

    This year the New Castle Library Friends’ Preview Book Sale, instead of being held the “Night before the Separation Day Book Sale” as in past years, will be held eight days before, on Friday evening, June 5th, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  It will be part of the First Friday Art Loop, and will be opened to the public. The best and newest of the donated books will be for sale at the library, including Delaware, Irish and general history, cooking, art, literature, gardening, poetry, and fitness. There will also be a new category, nostalgia/collectibles, as well as many books signed by their authors.

    As part of the Preview Sale, local artists will be displaying their work(s) at the library. The collection of artists are Don Almquist, Richard Bockmann, Bruce Burk, Rebecca Hutchinson, Dawn Majewski, Corky Viola, and Dennis Young. These original art works will be for sale (most by silent auction).  A model clay city, an art project of the Carrie Downie After-School Art Club, will also be displayed.

    A restored painting of the Trustees (c. 1910), which hangs in the library’s Conference Room, has some mysteries surrounding it. A number of the trustees pictured, as well as the painter, are unknown. To solve these mysteries, there will be an Identify-the-Trustees and Painter contest starting the night of the Preview Sale and running through Separation Day.

    Please come to the library, spend time with your neighbors, be the first to have an opportunity to buy the best books and to view, buy or bid on art by some incredibly talented local artists, all while supporting the library. Light snacks and wine will be available. As a thank-you to New Castle Library Friends, there will be a Members Only door prize raffle.

    On Separation Day, Saturday, June 13, the annual book sale will be held from 9:30 until 3:30. There will be a huge selection of hard cover and paperback books, large print, fiction, and nonfiction. Whatever your interest or passion, be it crafts, art, history, literature, business, cooking, parenting, etc., you’ll find books on the topic.

    The Post-Separation Day Sale dates will be Monday, June 15, 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., and Tuesday, June 16, 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m., books will be sold at $7.00 per bag in the library’s Conference Room.
