"Our 4-Town Future" Community Visit Forums - Feb 21, Mar 14, 21, and 28

All members of the Royalton, Sharon, Strafford & Tunbridge communities are invited to participate in a series of forums, held in each of the 4 towns, to share concerns and ideas. VCRD will bring a team of federal, state, business, nonprofit, and philanthropic leaders who will listen to residents and return in months ahead with recommendations, ideas, and support in developing action plans and funding strategies. Residents from all four towns are invited to participate in any or all of the forums across the region. Attend the sessions most important to you and come to the Free Community Dinners! Click HERE for the full schedule.

Ideas brainstormed at community forums will be shared at an "Our 4-Town Future" Priorities Session in April to discuss and then vote on key priorities. Local task force groups will form in May to implement priorities chosen.

Survey to Share Your Ideas: If you have ideas for action to share, we invite you to use the online survey to share YOUR ideas for the future of the Royalton, Sharon, Strafford and Tunbridge 4-Town Region.
