Town Council committee to hold meeting at Leyden Woods
GREENFIELD — The Town Council Community Relations Committee will hold its meeting Tuesday night in the Leyden Woods Community Room at 6:30 p.m. to give people who otherwise wouldn’t or couldn’t make it downtown on a weeknight the opportunity to voice their concerns and opinions about whatever they’d like.
The committee typically holds its meetings in the Planning Department office at 114 Main St.
Chairwoman Karen “Rudy” Renaud and committee member Marian Kelner, who is Precinct 1 councilor, said the committee plans to hold several of this year’s meetings in different locations throughout Greenfield.
“We want more exposure and we want to get out to places where we can talk to folks and not put the burden on them to get to us,” said Renaud.
The committee has invited representatives from the town, Franklin Regional Transit Authority and Franklin Regional Council of Governments to discuss transportation issues in Greenfield.
Kelner said people will be allowed to talk about anything they’d like, though, including parks, the town’s budget, the addiction problem in Greenfield, or anything else they feel needs attention.
“We want to bring everyone’s ideas and concerns to the forefront and have ongoing conversations about them,” said Renaud.
The Community Relations and Education Committee will meet in Leyden Woods Community Room at 6:30 p.m. It meets the last Monday of each month, but rescheduled to Tuesday this month because of the Memorial Day holiday.
Other members of the committee are: Precinct 8 Councilor Karen Shapiro Miller, Precinct 9 Councilor Norman Hirschfeld and At-large Councilor Mark Maloni.
