Amherst residents will have an opportunity to respond to the specific proposals for changing Amherst government that the Amherst Charter Commission has developed in response to input from many residents, Amherst town staff, elected officials and committees, as well as perspectives and beliefs of the individual commissioners. The first round of “listening workshops” sought broad input on any and all topics of concern and passion to participants. This round of workshops seeks input on very specific proposals coming out of Commission deliberations, proposals focused primarily on executive and legislative functions as well as on public participation.
All workshops will be held in the Jones Library Woodbury Room (basement of the Jones library). They are scheduled for different times of day in hopes there will be a time that is convenient for most people. Modest refreshments will be serviced.
