Guilford Public Visioning Workshop
November 11 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Saturday, November 11, 2023 – 10AM to 2PM
Broad Brook Community Center – 3940 Guilford Center Road
This is a community-building event that will help the Strategic Planning Process prioritize what matters in Guilford. We will dig deeper into our values, Guilford’s scenic and natural world, and traditional land uses. We will focus on creating a vision that clearly identifies what we want to maintain, evolve, or transform.
How it works: There will be 6 Topic Tables, which will start at the times listed below. After a short presentation, and for the rest of the workshop time, we’ll mix hands-on mapping with an exploration of how Guilford’s history, and its future, are shaped by its people, forests, fields, and hamlets.
TOPIC START TIMES:
10:00 – Welcome and Introduction
10:30 – Physical Connections
11:00 – Business and Economic Vitality
11:30 – Land Use Planning
12:00 – OPEN HOUSE and Lunch
12:30 – Public Facilities and Recreation
1:00 – Community Communications
1:30 – Health and Wellbeing
2:00 – “Report Out” from the Tables, Summary, Closing
We will answer: What should the Town invest in to Preserve the Future in Guilford, to strengthen local connections: social, business, physical, natural. Members of the Planning Commission and the consultant team from DuBois & King will keep building on “what we’ve heard” in the Strategic Planning Process so far. Please stop in any time. Stay at a Topic Table for as long as you as you want, or just tour around. Workshopping for each of the Topics will start at the times listed above, but they won’t’ stop until 2:00! Lunch will be provided.
