How old is the town Charter? Does it still work? How can I have input?
Join us Thursday, October 20th at 7pm to learn about the the Town Charter and the Charter Revision Commission. Jackie Downing, two-time Charter Revision Commission member and life-long Hamden resident, will talk about the processes and procedures and about how we, as residents and voters can be involved.
The meeting will be at the Board of Education building, 60 Putnam Avenue (entrance off the driveway, look for signs) and a Zoom option will be available for those not wishing to attend in-person (Zoom link will be emailed out day-of and will be posted here on our website).
Time pending at the end of the meeting, we will review results from the community survey and discuss how the responses will shape upcoming WCA initiatives. Here is a link to the survey – we are still accepting responses, please take a couple minutes to provide feedback if you haven’t already.
