Opinion: Potsdam town council wants to hear from all residents
Wednesday, December 6, 2017 - 6:51 am

To the Editor:

You may be aware the town board is working on a new Comprehensive Plan. We have had one meeting with a number of attendees and have been able to focus on several areas of concern.

But now we want your help. If you have lived here a long time, you certainly know about things that we need and things that should be improved. If you have recently moved here, you can provide us with a fresh look at old problems.

You may be thinking, “Meeting - not my thing. I wouldn’t have anything to contribute.” You would be wrong. We have lived here many years, and we have seen what ordinary citizens can do when they come together with purpose. We all have special talents and insights just waiting to be tapped.

The following is a list of the topics for meetings on particular dates. Come to as many as interest you. All meetings will be held at the town hall from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

January 17 - Housing and Neighborhoods / Quality of Life

January 24 - Business and Economic Development / Land Use

January 31 - Infrastructure and Energy

We eagerly await your participation.
