Village Hall: Get Informed & Share Your Voice

Background

Starting this past July, a Task Force made of up residents, community group leaders, and small business owners met to discuss future options for “Community Spaces” in Carver.  “Community Spaces” represent places where we gather to celebrate family, organize events, support one another, provide services, and debate issues that impact our community.  “Community Spaces” can take many forms such as an event center, community center, city hall, and in the case of our community Village Hall.

Over the course of seven months the Community Spaces Task Force developed a vision statement and guiding principles for Village Hall.  In addition, the Task Force reviewed and debated the ability of thirteen separate locations, including the current Village Hall site, to meet the developed vision and guiding principles for community spaces in Carver.  Please make sure to share your Voice on Village Hall, by filling out the form at the bottom of the page!
