GRAHAMSVILLE – Residents in the Town of Neversink will get an opportunity to share their ideas for the future at two “community visioning workshops” scheduled this month.
The first workshop takes place at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 15 at the Daniel Pierce Library’s community room located at 332 Main Street in Grahamsville. Anyone interested in the town’s future, or who has an idea for a local project that would improve the community, is encouraged to attend.
The workshops are being sponsored by volunteers from Neversink Renaissance, and will be facilitated by staff from Sullivan Renaissance.
“These will be highly interactive workshops with lots of opportunity for participation,” said community planner Helen Budrock, “With the library expansion completed, and several new projects in the discussion phase, now is a perfect time to think about where the town is heading and opportunities for future improvements.”
The first workshop is designed to give residents an opportunity to share their thoughts about what they like and don’t like about their community. For most of the evening attendees will work in small groups to identify Neversink’s strengths and weaknesses in five specific areas: community appearance, business development/tourism, infrastructure and the environment, recreation/social issues and education/youth development.
At the second workshop, scheduled two weeks later on Wednesday, July 29, participants will propose ideas for specific projects that build upon the information generated at the first workshop. At the end of the second workshop, participants will then vote on the projects they would most like to see implemented.
At a subsequent meeting the following month, Helen Budrock will work with Neversink Renaissance and local officials to select a handful of projects to get off the ground immediately and help identify potential funding sources.
