Planning & Community Development Announcements
The Manchester Conservation Commission has amended two aspects of its request for proposals for a natural resources inventory. The incorrect submission date stated on the request for proposals has been corrected to Monday, December 23. Also, the address for submission of proposals has changed to 195 McGregor Street, Suite 201, due to a temporary change of offices for the Manchester Planning and Community Development Department.
Additionally, the Commission established a new web page to provide information for consultants who are drafting proposals. That web page can be found as a link on the Commission’s main page. Any questions regarding the request for proposals asked by individual consultants will be posted to the website, along with answers, to ensure that all consultants have the same information.
Planapalooza wrapped up on Tuesday, September 17th. Thank you to all of those who attended and participated during this busy week. There were a number of public meetings held on various topics throughout Planapalooza™, and we invite those who were unable to participate to visit the "Tell Us What You Think" page to share some of your ideas.
The work in progress presentation was shown to the public during the closing of Planapalooza™ on Tuesday, September 17th at the Palace Theater and offers possibilities for the future of Manchester. These plans and illustrations represent one possible scenario representing the views of many of the participants. They are not intended to be the only plan possible for the areas represented. Their purpose is to help the community visualize possibilities and create a platform for dialogue about the ideas contained in the images.

Planapalooza™ September 12-17, 2019
The Manchester Master Plan is being updated. The next public engagement opportunity will be Planapalooza, taking place from Thursday, September 12th to Tuesday, September 17th. You may view and download a printable schedule with meeting locations, dates and times.
A Planapalooza™ is an intense, participatory design, and public input process where you are invited to work directly with your neighbors, fellow business owners and a multidisciplinary consulting team. The entire process is open to the public. So please join us as we work together to prepare a Master Plan that will protect and enhance Manchester and set a clear vision for the future.
In Manchester, we know big ideas can spring from small conversations and people invest in what they help create. When we come together as a community to listen to and learn from each other, we have the power to impact both neighborhoods and lives.
During this one-month opportunity, we invite you and your families, neighbors, colleagues, and friends — old and new — to pull up a chair, gather around a table, and discuss the ways in which we — as individuals and as a collective — can improve the quality of life and economic vitality in Manchester.
A host commits to hosting a conversation between August 12th and September 13th over breakfast, lunch, dinner, a coffee break, or any time in between. The invitation list is up to you— and the conversation can be hosted anywhere.
Before the conversation, make sure to visit planmanchester.com/on-the-table to submit a Host Form and download the Host Toolkit with everything you need, including a conversation guide and suggested conversation prompts.
Everyone is welcome to serve as a host!
