I want to be crystal clear on a few things I read in some recent comments and in emails regarding the BRC UNH Feasibility study.
To begin, all surveys, all of them, will be compiled by the UNH team. They have sole access to the computer results and they alone will input the paper survey results. No one in town hall, no town employee and no town official will have any influence or control of the surveys.
The "sense of the meeting" warrant article that voters approved at town meeting did not come from the BoS or town staff at the time ( 2012 Town Meeting). It was originally proposed by the ABC to first determine if the town had interest in the recommendation of the Blue Ribbon Commission for a new gym/recreation facility before spending money on any studies.
The Town Wide meeting on October 22nd (5:30 to 7:00PM at the MA Cafeteria) is open to the general public. There will be 200 or so electronic clickers and at the last town team meeting it was determined that the priority if there is an overflow of attendees will be for taxpayers and voters. We are hoping for a good mix of attendees of all ages and opinions to get the best possible results.
