“I am the Town Planner and have recently been posting quite a bit about some zoning changes that the Planning Commission is working on adopting. The public has asked to be more informed about what is going on, so I have been posting information regarding planning issues, meetings, hearings, updates, etc. This has been working really well and I really appreciate having the opportunity to communicate via FPF. You all are a great asset to our community.” • Katherine in Jericho

• Lydia from Charlotte
“Dear Neighbors, I want to propose a non-partisan FPF discussion thread. The subject is: “Why do so few people vote?” or maybe “Why don’t more people vote?” • Charles from Burlington
“I try to stay current on the goings-on in my community, largely by reading FPF posts, so I am aware that there were house parties, coffee meetings with candidates, and information available online.”
• Jacey from Burlington
“As usual – FPF shines as a great format to accomplish a public awareness / discussion.”
