Third Bristol crime forum set for Oct. 17 at MAUHS

BRISTOL — Bristol will hold its third crime forum at Mount Abraham Union High School this Wednesday, Oct. 17, from 7-9 p.m. While the last two forums, in July and September, focused on providing information to the community, the goal of the third forum is to hone in on potential steps forward. A steering committee has been formed, and met last week to plan the agenda.
The meeting will begin with information and updates by facilitator Kate McGowan and police chief Kevin Gibbs. The members of the steering committee will also introduce themselves. Then, the community will break into smaller groups of 12 to 15 people for discussion.
“The questions really are, what do we want for our community? What do we have to learn? And finally, what are we prepared to do about it?” said McGowan.
The breakout groups will reconvene at the end of the meeting.
The public is invited; those who were unable to make it to the first two forums are encouraged to attend.
