Invitation to a conversation on the future of Hopkinton with the Town’s Visioning Group, 10/28/14, 7:00-9:00pm, at the Senior Center
The Town of Hopkinton, with assistance of professional planning consultants, is conducting a workshop as part of the community visioning project. The purpose of the project is to develop a unified vision, guiding principles, and strategic goals to imagine the best future for Hopkinton.
The workshop will include digital group polling and small discussion groups. Light refreshments will be provided.
While the workshops are open public meetings, it is very helpful if you pre-register so that we can ensure enough workshop materials for you. Thank you!

Access to the basement will be closed to the public on occasion throughout the basement rehabilitation project. This entrance provides an accessible route into Town Hall for persons with a disability. Town staff will provide assistance to anyone needing help in gaining access to the building when the basement is closed. Please contact the Facilities Department at508-497-9738 in advance of visiting Town Hall and they will coordinate with you to provide assistance at the scheduled time of your arrival. Should there be a need for immediate assistance gaining access to the building, please call the Town Manager’s Office at 508-497-9700 and arrangements will be made.
During these projects there will also be a need to temporarily close the sidewalk in front of Town Hall on occasion and pedestrian traffic will be rerouted.
Also on occasion, the entrance to the parking lot behind Town Hall may be closed for periods of time as work is being completed on that side of the building. The entrance will be relocated to the existing exit and will be utilized for both the entrance and exit to the parking lot.
Notices of these changes will be posted in advance on the Town website www.hopkintonma.gov.

After thoughtful consideration, the Visioning Steering Group (appointed by the Hopkinton Board of Selectmen) agreed to re-schedule the Community Workshop, which was scheduled for Wednesday, June 18, 2014 at 6 pm.
The Steering Group, in consultation with Town Hall staff and the consultants, agreed that a detailed plan for public input needed to be developed and that any attempt at creating a vision for Hopkinton would greatly benefit only from a wide range of opinions of Hopkinton residents and organizations.
We appreciate your interest in the June 18 workshop and you will be invited to participate in future workshops, which are expected to be held in September.
If you anticipate making an amendment at Town Meeting, you may bring it to Town Meeting on a thumb drive, or email the amendment to email@example.com. Remember to include the Article Number, your full name and address, and the full text of the amended motion language.
