Civic Social May 18, 2022 7:30 – 9:00 Topic: Recommendations from the Access to Town Meeting Committee

On April 12, 2022, the Access to Town Meeting (ATM) Committee presented their recommendations to the Select Board.  The committee of 11 was appointed by the Select Board last September to investigate and recommend actions the Town can take to increase attendance at Town Meetings.  The process used included a Westford Community Survey resulting in over 800 respondents, as well as responses to a questionnaire from over 40 MA towns. The Committee process, survey, questionnaire, and resulting recommendations can be found by clicking: Access to Town Meeting. Our Town Moderator, along with town leadership is currently reviewing these recommendations with plans for implementation.
