Future of the Community Building and Facilities Needs

Mar 4, 2018
B y Diane Schrimpf, Finance Chair

Community Building
Sunday, Apr 8, noon to 2 p.m.
Wednesday, Apr 18, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Many residents expressed a desire to be involved in discussions about building needs in the Village. We are preparing to form a committee to dig in and come up with a master plan. First, want and need to hear the ideas and concerns of the community. Two meeting dates and times are scheduled to give as many people as possible an opportunity to participate. This is also an opportunity to meet other residents. Councilmember Diane Schrimpf will be facilitating the meetings – which will be conducted as an informal “workshop” where residents will work together in small groups to discuss ideas. We think it is possible other areas such as the lakes, green space or creation of a Charter Village might come up during our workshop. We will “park” those ideas to share with Council. At the workshops we will have forms for residents to complete if they would like to be on a committee or would like to share expertise, or participate in future discussions about topics of interest.
Please with comments or suggestions. I also try to follow Village government and Community Association Facebook pages.
