Mayor’s Community Meeting Location Change

Tuesday, October 15 Meeting to Be Held at Potter Burns Elementary

Pawtucket – The City of Pawtucket has announced that the Mayor’s Community Meeting on Tuesday, October 15th will be held at Potter Burns Elementary School across the street from its original location at Goff Middle School. Potter Burns Elementary School was fully renovated in 2017.

The time and date of the meeting remain the same.

In an effort to promote more resident engagement, Mayor Grebien has been using a new format in the community meetings taking place this year. Residents have the opportunity to have face to face conversations and ask questions to Department Heads including Public Safety, the Department of Public Works, the Commerce Department, and the Finance Department.

“We want to increase public engagement as we go out into the community,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “There is a great opportunity to have a two-way dialogue. The new format allows us to listen to our residents and have real conversations in a less tutorial setting.”

Past community meetings have consisted of a presentation from various departments followed by a brief question and answer period. The new format, successfully used by experts across the country, allows residents to discuss issues in a focused setting directly with department heads.

The full schedule of remaining meetings can be seen below.
