Committee and Department Updates
The future of Shutesbury? …Wilderness, coffee shops, rural setting, community meeting space, scenic beauty, library, taxes, services…just some of the comments residents provided to the Harriman Group at the first Master Plan Working Group Community Visioning Workshop on November 3rd. Forty-five residents listed anything and everything about what Shutesbury should and shouldn’t be moving toward in the next 10 to 15 years. If you missed the November workshop, there will be another opportunity to express your desires and vision for the future on December 5, 2016 from 7PM to 9PM at the Shutesbury Elementary School gym. If you did come in November, please come again in December to continue the conversation. Refreshments will be served, and we are hoping to provide child care services. For more information, click on http://www.shutesbury.org/master_plan_working_group or email us at mpwg@Shutesbury.org. If you did miss the November workshop, you can download and fill out the survey form or you can go to the survey web page and fill it out online. Note that the survey is short and the paper copy can be returned to town hall, library, school, or post office. No matter which option you choose, the information needs to be in the hands of the committee by November 18th.
