It is a way for all Antrim residents to take stock of where our town is today and where we want it to be in the future, and to develop a plan to get there. The process, which takes about six months, is designed to include as many people from the community as possible. The final event will bring residents together to discuss what makes a community a great place to live and how Antrim measures up. We will talk about issues that are most important to Antrim, and decide on three or four projects to get started.
Why we need YOU.
You are an Antrim resident, and you have your own experiences and opinions about our community, what’s good about it and how we can make it better. You may be younger or older, a long-time resident or fairly new to town, involved in community groups or not, a business owner, a student, a parent of young or school age children, or a grandparent. In order to figure out what we need to do to improve life in Antrim, we need all residents represented at the Antrim 2020 event this fall.
Who is working on this?
A steering committee of 18 Antrim residents is organizing Antrim 2020 and making sure that people from all corners of our community are represented at the event that will take place this fall. We have help from UNH cooperative extension, which has worked with many NH towns to plan and run this type of event—which they call a “community profile”—and to turn the results into action.
