This action was taken as a result of the approval of a new Arts Commission. This action, along with the elimination of the Cultural Arts Committee, has opened up the calendar for the PACS Commission to utilize the second Thursday for their meetings.

The PACS meetings are currently scheduled on the fourth Thursday of the month, which typically conflicts with holidays in November and December. This causes the Commission to be dark in those months.
