A Voice for Citizens, a Force for Change

Ad Hoc Committe 2/18/19

Committee Name: 
Town Council Ad Hoc Committee to Develop Charge for Community & Economic Development Committee
Meeting date: 
Monday, February 18, 2019 - 18:30
Meeting Location: 
UMass Design Building Conference Room 221
Members present: 
Town Councilors Schrieber, Pam, Ryan, Schoen, DeAngelis, Bahl-Milne
Observer Notes: 

Each Councilor brought and shared their version of the charge for the Community Economic Development Committee. Committee concluded that simple was best giving the committee flexibility to change and expand in the future. They clarified its role as advisory reviewing proposals and making recommendations to the Council. The ad hoc committee concluded that this would be a committee of the Council and would include 5 councilors but no residents while simultaneously introducing a committee of the town to focus on economic development. The Committee drafted a single page charge and decided to reconvene on Sunday, 2/24 at 4PM in the same location (UMass Design Building Conference Room 221) to continue working on the charge.
