It is expected that the team will discuss the focus groups and how to reach out for additional names to participate.
As of this writing, focus groups will be held Monday October 20th ( time and place to be determined) and the town wide meeting will be held on Wednesday October 22nd at 5:30pm in the academy cafeteria.
This is a controversial issue and we are not the only town in the region struggling with similar issues. Tuftonboro is looking at building a new library at a cost of over $2M and possibly relocating the Police Department into the old library space and it is similarly controversial. They are also experiencing the same demographic changes as we are and some also question the need for new facilities.
We sure do have a lot of things all going on at once , some have been lingering for a long time. We need to bring these to some conclusion and the best way to do that is to participate and express your opinion. I have my own opinions on our issues and I know that many of you have very strong opinions of your own, but I want some real facts so that I can be comfortable that we have gotten to the best possible answer.
I appreciate those that have come forward and want to participate, regardless of their opinion , and encourage and look forward to seeing many of our citizens coming out to speak their minds to the point that we need to schedule more sessions.
If we can do that, I will feel confident that we will get to the correct conclusion.
