Peterborough forum will help steer town's future
"The Vision Chapter really provides a foundation for any future updates that come about," Throop said. "It's a really important one. And that's one of the reasons we are taking the time to put together a town-wide forum."
"The idea is to get as many folks to come to the community forum as we can get," Throop said, adding that if you live, work or play in Peterborough you are a stakeholder and welcome at the forum.
The forum will start with a series of presentations, including history, demographics, trends and a summary of the last Vision Chapter.
"Think of it as trying to paint a portrait — a realistic portrait, not just kind of pie in the sky — but a realistic portrait of how people want to see the community evolve over time, based on our strengths, our assets, and the challenges we might anticipate and the needs we might have in the future and all those sorts of things," Throop said.
The forum starts Friday night at 5:30 with a pizza supper. A presentation and discussion should start around 6:15 p.m., Throop said.
Because meals are being provided, people are asked to RSVP with the town by Wednesday.
"That was written about people from Peterborough about Peterborough and civic discourse. People from town were the stars and participants of the play," Throop said. "It's quite funny and it's quite entertaining, but it's an opportunity to see examples of civic discourse. So we're quite excited about it."
"There may be a few of the original cast members to answer questions," Throop said. "The committee thought it would be a great way to kick off the idea of this visioning event."
