BILLERICA -- Town officials will lead a Community Development Strategy workshop today starting at 6 p.m., in anticipation of submitting a Community Development Block Grant application. The workshop is open to all residents and organizations, and will be followed by a public meeting with the Planning Board at 7 p.m., both in Room 210, Town Hall, 365 Boston Road.
The CDS summarizes the town's current planning documents; describes the town's community-development goals for open space, housing, economic development, infrastructure, transportation and public social services; identifies a list of prioritized projects and activities designed to meet those goals; and identifies geographical areas that will be the focus of the town's community-development efforts.
Any person or organization wishing to comment on the CDS will have an opportunity to speak. For more information, or if special services, assistance or accommodations are required to participate in this workshop, contact D. Anthony Fields, Planning Director, at 978-671-0962 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
