Preparation begins

Got a terrific and informative packet from the Town Clerk’s office the other day. It includes preliminary warrant information, various opinion sheets related to certain warrant articles, an array of meeting dates for warrant discussions, a flier for a comprehensive planning committee reception (May 2nd, 7-9 p.m. at Town Hall,) and best of all, info on a bus tour arranged for TM members to check out various locations relevant to the warrant articles. What a great idea! This was created by the Town Meeting Coordinating Committee and will take interested members to places like the Cherry Hill Golf Course, the Cushman Store, Strawberry Fields and proposed preservation sites. The bus tour will be Saturday, April 22nd, and I’m all signed up.

Also in the packet is a nomination form for spots on the TM Coordinating Committee. According to the document, the TMCC's purpose in part: “shall be to provide continuing leadership and organization to Town Meeting and to extend outreach to the community on behalf of Town Meeting.” I may need to nominate myself. This definitely sounds like my kind of committee.
