Beacon's future is yours - be a part of it! Attend the public meeting of the Main Street Linkage Committee on May 16, 2012.
The Beacon Main Street Linkage Committee needs input from the community about proposed changes to the city's zoning code. These changes would affect future development in two key areas of town: From Main Street at 9D down to the waterfront, and on Main Street between Digger Phelps and Teller Avenue.
Zoning determines what the city looks like and how it works. A simplified code will help define and preserve the characer of Beacon as the city grows.
Please attend the public meeting scheduled for Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. The meeting will be held in the basement of the Memorial Building located at 413 Main Street (at Teller Avenue). The meeting is open and all are welcome. Public officials will be in attendance.
Come learn about what the proposed changes to Beacon's zoning code will mean, find out how your neighbors and fellow citizens view those changes, and make your own voice heard in this critical discussion about Beacon's future. What that future will look like depends in large part on what Beacon's residents decide.
