'Planaplooza' workshops set for Pinardville
GOFFSTOWN - "Planapalooza for Pinardville," a week-long series of workshops and events designed to get people thinking about and creating a vision for the Pinardville section of town, begins Friday and runs through Tuesday, May 7 at the Goffstown Harvest Christian Church meeting hall, 542 Mast Road
An opening presentation and hands-on design workshop will take place at the meeting hall from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Friday.
The Planapalooza for Pinardville is funded through a $50,000 grant from the New Hampshire Housing Authority.
Members of the public are encouraged to drop in during any of the events to offer suggestions or just observe what planners, residents and business owners think Pinardville's future should look like.
"When we got this grant, we said we really need to focus on Pinardville because it's been so long since anyone's ever really thought about how it can be developed or redeveloped," said Brian Rose, town planner. "I think there are a lot of ideas that people have about Pinardville that they've never given voice to. What we're looking for is community involvement."
