I have to say it has been pretty great 1) to have a Zoom link for every city meeting that is happening and 2) to have the recordings of those meetings posted pretty quickly by GCTV. It makes keeping up with this stuff worlds easier when I don’t have to pester the Clerk’s office or whoever to get the recording

Here’s what I’ll be trying to keep an eye on this week:

Tuesday - Economic Development Committee

The EDC will be holding their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, March 12, 2024 at 6:00 PM. The meeting will take place at City Hall and on Zoom.

The full agenda for the meeting is available, and at least the first half of the meeting looks to be a the EDC’s version of last week’s Planning Board meeting, with a public hearing and deliberation on the six proposed amendments to the zoning ordinance.

The committee also has an agenda item to discuss the Public Involvement Plan for the Lunt site cleanup.

Wednesday - Appointments & Ordinances Committee

A&O is meeting on Wednesday, March 13, 2024 at 6:00 PM at City Hall and on Zoom.

They’ve posted their full agenda as well; as expected from last week’s Committee Chairs meeting, it is going to be a busy one.

Wednesday - School Committee

The School Committee is meeting on Wednesday evening as well, 6:00 PM at the John Zon Community Center on Pleasant Street and also on Zoom.

This meeting looks to be a relatively light one a School Committee meetings go. Looking at the agenda, I’d expect the bulk of the time to be spent on the various reports and updates. It is hard to imagine any of the motions up for deliberation (a few job description approvals and the 24/25 school year calendar being the highlights) generating much controversy or debate, but I’ve been wrong before.

There are a few other meetings happening this week that I’m probably not going to be able to catch up with, seeing as how I’m just one dude:

The Zoning Board of Appeals has cancelled their scheduled Thursday evening meeting and won’t convene again until April.
