This hearing is the one opportunity for interested members of the public to let the Advisory Committee know how you feel about this issue. The subcommittees will report back to the AC with a recommendation on the article, which will then be brought to Town Meeting.
If you live locally and feel strongly on this issue, I urge you to attend the hearing. I will be there to present my case.
The hearing will take place this Thursday evening, at 7:30 pm, in room 209 of Brookline Town Hall (333 Washington Street).
