Wind and rain did not stop citizens of Meriden from coming out in full force on December 9, 2014! We had over 160 citizen participants – a combination of Mills residents, downtown residents, business owners, stakeholders, and other interested parties. We learned where we are in the planning process, identified the biggest challenges set before us, and brainstormed as a community how to overcome those challenges in order to revitalize our beloved downtown. We received a ton of feedback from everyone, and in the next few months, we will be reaching out again as we develop our plan to ask for your guidance and approval. We asked everyone on December 9 if they were optimistic of genuine transformation in Downtown Meriden. 70% responded positively. We hope that as we continue the planning process and implement real change in Downtown Meriden, 100% of citizens will feel optimistic of our downtown’s future.
