We’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve heard nonplussed residents complain that they weren’t asked for their opinion on some decision before the town until minds were already made up.
But in the case of managing the town’s growth, no one can say the town isn’t seeking everyone’s input. In a process that has just begun, the town and its hired consultants have laid out an aggressive plan to get public input on the kinds of services and infrastructure they think are most important for the town to focus its resources on in the next 10 or 20 years.
If you haven’t already taken their survey, vistit the town’s website and do so. If you decide not to, though, be forewarned: You were asked.
In fact, the town has done everything but put the computer mouse in your hand.
