Two important Middletown meetings

The Board of Education meet tonight to decide how to parse cuts to its proposed budget. Closing McDonough Elementary, or the Kegwin 6th Grade transitional school seem to be off the table. The meeting, will be held at the high school at 7 pm..

Also, the town's Plan of Development is currently being rewritten and the city is looking for input tonight on environmental issues which will affect the town in the coming decade.

This invitation to attend was sent by transaltmiddletown.

If you're interested in codifying air quality into Middletown's Plan of Conservation and Development document, read on: Middletown’s Environment — The Next 10 Years Tuesday, May 20th, 7-8:30 pm First Church, 190 Court Street The Plan of Conservation and Development is a document that can help guide the City in making land use decisions and adopting policies that affect our whole community and its natural resources. It is also a way to express the needs and goals of citizens. The City of Middletown is currently updating its plan, as required every 10 years. City Planner Bill Warner is seeking comments and input from the environmental community, since there are many sections of the plan that address natural resources, greenways, air quality, transportation, recreation, parks, open space, land use policies, and urban design. Bill will discuss the current plan and potential revisions. This is an opportunity for you to state what environmental issues are important to you and to make specific recommendations. Help us spread the word about this opportunity. For more information contact John Hall, 346-6657 ext. 13.
