Currently the Town Planner and Cultural Coordinator are working with representatives from the Millers Falls Community Improvement Association. We are looking to expand the core working group to those residents and business owners that may be interested. Please let me know if you or someone else is a good candidate.
The project will take about 6 months to complete. The process will involve two community meetings with Millers Falls residents/business owners and a series of scheduled phone meetings between the consultant and a core working group. The Cultural Coordinator is responsible for hosting the community events. The consultant is responsible for analyzing
the information and writing the final report.
