Four people have been chosen to wade through public input on aesthetics for the Interstate 270/U.S. Route 33 interchange and make a recommendation to Dublin City Council.

This week council appoint-ed the four to a selection committee that will help determine what type of public art will be incorporated into improvements to the I-270/ U.S. Route 33 interchange done over the next few years.

The interchange is considered "failing" in terms of its ability to handle the massive traffic flow and will receive new ramps to replace the current cloverleaf configuration.

To mark the interchange as an entrance to Dublin, the city is planning special landscaping and relief drawings on the side of the new ramps.

Sara Ott, Dublin's senior project manager, Monday, Oct. 28, recommended four people for the committee: Councilman John Reiner as council's representative, Dub-lin Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Margie Amorose as the business community representative, Susan Sywt as the community representative and Dublin Arts Council Board Member Jerry Hayslett as the Arts Council's representative.

A fifth position on the committee for an arts professional was eliminated to keep the group more locally focused, Ott said.

"On Nov. 13 Creative Design Resolutions will present three concepts at 7 p.m. in the Abbey Theater," Ott said.

"(The committee will) digest feedback from individuals at the meeting and online feedback."

After looking at the community feedback, the committee will make a recommendation to council from the three options Nov. 20.

Steven Weitzman of Creative Design Resolutions has already met with focus groups from the community to generate ideas for art for the interchange.

Other matters

In other city news, council this week got an update about construction of the Brand and Coffman roads roundabout.

The roundabout started construction in mid-August with a November completion date.

City Manager Marsha Grigsby said the roundabout is currently expected to open Nov. 8.

Council members this week also established a meeting schedule for 2014.

Meetings will continue to be held at 7 p.m. the second and fourth Mondays of the month in January, February, March, April, June, August, September and October.

The meetings will be held on the first and third Mondays of the month in May and November to avoid conflicts with the Memorial Tournament and Thanksgiving.

Council will only meet once a month in July and December. Those meetings are slated for July 1 and Dec. 8.
