This morning, Chris McCue offered to help with the upcoming 9/26 meeting about affordable housing (since I had advocated for a meeting to discuss affordable housing issues). But since I had not organized, nor planned the 9/26 meeting (I only learned about it when I went to the last Selectmen meeting), I forwarded Chris’ offer to the town administration. I received this response from Kristine Trierweiler –
The meeting on 9/26 was for town boards to discuss affordable housing with the BOS. I believe that is separate from a town wide forum on 40B. Mike had been working with Mark on that.
Given that, Chris is correct that people will be attending the working session on 9/26 as well so I will touch base with Mark/Mike on scheduling the 40B meeting similar to the one we held when Parc was first proposed.
I apologize if my lack of information caused me to jump to conclusions that mislead anyone about that 9/26 meeting. I had actually mistakenly believed that the 9/26 meeting was intended as the public forum on 40B and affordable housing that I had envisioned, but apparently it is not – although the public meeting may now be getting arranged. It looks like we may be getting two separate meetings:
- one targeted at town boards, discussing the issues, and
- one targeted at the public, seeking to inform and seek input, I imagine.
