Strategic Planning for the Town of Halifax
Gretchen Havreluk is our state-funded Municipal Technical Assistance Program consultant. MTAP is administered by the Windham Regional Commission for our area.
Havreluk led the team through a “SWOT” exercise to assess the Town’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. From that, we created and discussed a list of potential Town projects, and prioritized it. Havreluk will create a report that will provide more detail on the meeting outcomes.
