In its ongoing efforts to keep citizens aware of and involved with issues affecting the quality of life in Newport, the Alliance of Livable Newport will be holding a series of Public Forums featuring the Chairpersons of various City Commissions and Boards.
“Newporter’s are generally aware of City Council meetings but often are unaware that33 boards and commissions have been ordained to support and report to the city council. Their members provide countless volunteer hours in monitoring, investigating, reviewing, reporting on and recommending actions that affect the daily quality of life in Newport” said John Hirschboeck, Vice President of the Alliance. All commissions meetings are open to the public and their agendas and minutes are posted on the city’s website, along with applications for those who might wish to serve.
The first of the ALN forums will feature reports from the Cliff Walk Commission, Easton’s Beach Commission, and Waterfront Commission and will take place at6pm at the Newport Public Library on Wednesday, October 2, with brief presentations from the commissions and an opportunity for a Q&A afterwards. City Councilwoman Jeanne-Marie Napolitano will introduce the Commissioners.
“After a busy summer on the water, we felt these 3 commissions in particular would be a great way to launch our series,” said Hirschboeck. “The majority of our tourists have visited the walk, the beach and our waterfront. How these waterfront infrastructures are maintained and supported is critically important to all.”
