To the editor: Chester board seeks input on town growth, amenities

As the Chester Planning Commission continues working to maximize citizen input related to quality-of-life priorities around planning Chester’s future, we request the following poll to be completed by all renters, businesspeople, resident, and non-resident property owners as a vitally important tool in providing direction to the work being undertaken. Click here to access the poll.

As many are aware, the Planning Commission is working on multiple facets of town planning all of which are likely to have significant impacts upon the look and feel of our community over both the short term as well as the longer term. This work includes focus on housing, business, property development, our environment and the overall look and feel of our town.

Utilizing a poll to maximize public input will provide the Planning Commission and potentially other town government, with a much stronger sense of what you and the rest of our town desires for the future of Chester. As such, it’s important for all affected to complete and submit this poll. This is an opportunity to easily have your voice heard without needing to attend meetings or go through other processes to provide feedback to assist in guiding your local government.

A brightly colored postcard has been mailed to each registered voter as well as to each resident and non-resident property owner. The postcard includes instructions for completing the poll either electronically or by requesting a paper copy. In addition, there will be a staffed table at Town Hall on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8 for those who prefer to complete this poll in person.

Please take a few minutes to complete and submit this poll at your earliest opportunity and ask each adult member of your household to complete one as well. The Town of Chester thanks you!

    To clarify; I don’t have issues getting to the survey, but it did not accept my answers at the time. I will try again tonight, and reach out if I need to. Thanks !

    Hi Victoria,
    I just clicked the link included in the letter above and was taken to the survey. I hope you’re able to complete it by doing the same. If not, please call town hall at 875-2173 and request a paper copy. It’s important for the Planning Commission to get feedback from as many Chester folks as possible on this.
    Thank you!

    The survey seems to not be working at this time, but if the town is seriously considering it; we need sidewalks now! Please and thank you!
