A follow-up to a widely attended forum held in April, “The Future of Town-Owned Buildings: Part II” will start with a 30-minute coffee outside the Town Meeting Room at Town Hall. Running 7 to 9 p.m., the forum is a chance for residents to address, put questions to and hear from decision-makers in local government and community experts on what’s happening with several public buildings whose future use, ownership and in some cases, existence, are now in play.
Those buildings include:
- New Canaan Police Station
- Vine Cottage
- Irwin House-Barn-Gores Pavilion
- Former Outback Teen Center
- Waveny House
- Amy Murphy Carroll, member, Board of Finance; co-chair, Town Building Evaluation & Use Committee
- Penny Young, member, Town Council; co-chair, Town Building Evaluation & Use Committee
- Kit Devereaux, selectman
- Arnold Karp, president and founder, Karp Associates
- Martin Skrelunas, member, Historic District Commission and Historical Review Committee
- James Basch, taxpayer
The panel will be co-moderated by John Engel, chairman of the Town Council; Tucker Murphy, executive director of the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce; and Michael Dinan, editor/publisher of the New Canaanite.
To prepare our readers ahead of the forum and make best use of the time, info-sheets on the buildings listed above, and others, will be published on NewCanaanite.com starting Jan. 2.
Questions for panelists may be submitted in advance using this form:
