What types of housing does Claremont need to have a thriving community for all those who live and work in the city? This is the core question to be explored at a community conversation on Housing and the Future of Claremont, hosted by Vital Communities, the City of Claremont, Healthy Vibrant Claremont, the Greater Claremont Chamber of Commerce, and the Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission.
The free, public event is set for Thursday, May 31, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Sugar River Technical School’s Goodwin Community Room. The conversation will be facilitated by New Hampshire Listens. Citizens who live or work in Claremont are invited to attend. A light meal will be served at 5:30. Those who wish to attend should register in advance at VitalCommunities.org/Housing.
“Adequate housing for the workforce is among the top concerns of citizens and officials in Claremont. Safe, affordable housing is one of the most important needs we all face,” said David Putnam, a member of the Claremont Planning Board and co-founder of Healthy Vibrant Claremont.
“Vital Communities is glad to partner with a number of thoughtful organizations to host a conversation about a key issue facing Claremont and other communities in the greater Upper Valley region,” said Vital Communities Executive Director Tom Roberts.
Those who wish to attend should register online or contact Elyse Payson at (802) 291-9100 ext. 104 ahead of time.
