In January of this year an ad hoc group arranged a meeting at the Picton Town Hall to seek ideas for new uses of the building as a means of keeping it as a viable public space. The initial meeting attracted over 50 people, and the Working Group was given numerous ideas for new uses for the hall as well as a strong indication to maintain the present uses.
Since that time, members of the Working Group have been meeting bi-weekly to formulate a plan to keep the building as a public space. On Saturday afternoon, the group held a public meeting at the Town Hall to present its initial strategic plan and to solicit comments on the plan. The meeting was once again well attended, with 50 people present. There were a number of candidates for council in attendance, but the majority of people were current users of the hall.
