PUBLIC VIEWINGS OF TOWN COMMON PROPOSALS
This week, the Bolton Town Common Project Team will convene a charrette for the design of the Town Common, and will subsequently be seeking public comment on the results of this intense, collaborative planning process that will include representatives from a wide range of stakeholder groups. The charrette will involve two workshops, between which members of the public will be asked to comment on alternative designs. Based on public comment and additional analysis, the preferred alternative will be selected, and a final design and cost estimate will be produced.
Members of the public are invited to view the various proposals in the Program Room at the Bolton Public Library during January and February. The product of the first workshop will be available for viewing Jan. 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and on Jan. 22 and 29 from 3 to 8 p.m. The results of the second workshop will be available on Feb. 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and on Feb. 24 and 26 from 3 to 8 p.m. For more information visit www.boltontowncommon.org.
