New Philadelphia’s Art on the Alley will feature art, music and food

NEW PHILADELPHIA – Council had a light agenda Monday, with three council members absent.

During the session:

  • Mayor Joel Day reminded residents that Art on the Alley is scheduled for this Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in downtown New Philadelphia. He described it as one of the largest arts-focused events in eastern Ohio. All vendor spots are sold out. There will be three stages with live entertainment, food trucks and food vendors. Parking will be available in the county lots on First Drive NE and Second Street NE and in the city/county lots on First Drive and Front Avenue SE.
  • The mayor also noted that the state had not awarded a grant for the completion of the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail to New Philadelphia. But he noted that there are other state and federal grant programs that could be used to obtain funding for the project.
  • The next council meeting is on Thursday, May 30 at 7:30 PM. The meeting is rescheduled because Monday that week, the normally scheduled time for the meeting, is Memorial Day.
