The Amherst Charter Commission will hold its first public hearing on Thursday May 12, 2016 in the Amherst Regional Middle School Auditorium beginning at 7 p.m.
To begin our community conversation about Amherst and its values for Town government, participants are invited to share their thoughts on questions such as the following:
- What aspects of Amherst's current approach to government do you like?
- What aspects do you think could be improved?
- What do you see as key challenges facing Amherst?
- How can we improve our Town government’s ability to meet those challenges?
Residents will be able to provide input verbally (2 minute limit each) and/or in writing at the event. In addition, residents may provide input on line or send comments to the Charter Commission via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The work of the Charter Commission can be followed online at its web site.
Additional opportunities for input from residents, staff, and other stakeholders will be forthcoming.
