This Week in Meetings: April 16-20

Here are some of the meetings I'll be checking out this week in Madison in Guilford. Follow me on Twitter @dcecelia for live updates from these meetings, or, better yet, attend a meeting and come say hi. Is there any particular issue you're following this week? Let me know in the comments.

Guilford Board of Finance Meeting, 7:30 p.m., Monday, April 16, Community Center (Agenda)
This looks like a fairly standard Finance meeting, according to the agenda, but if you're interested in seeing just how money is spent by the town, this is the place to be.

Guilford Budget Referendum, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesday, April 17, all five polling locations (Budget)
Not a meeting, but still important to note. If you're out voting and see me at a polling place, let me know what you think of the budget. Or, contact me at, 203-789-5734 or through Twitter or Facebook. (Smoke signals, carrier pigeons and bike messengers are also acceptable forms of comment.) There are a number of informational videos posted on the Town of Guilford website regarding the budget, if you're interested.

Guilford High School Building Committee Meeting, 7 p.m., Tuesday, April 17, Community Center (Interactive Schematic Design)
Another week, another meeting about the new Guilford High School. This meeting will feature the 100 percent schematic design presentation from project architects Tai Soo Kim and is also the deadline by which the committee has to make a recommendation to the architect regarding the design so that they can move into the next project phase, design development.

Madison Planning and Zoning Commission Special Meeting, 6 p.m., Tuesday, April 17, Town Campus (Agenda)
This is a special meeting called by the PZC to specifically address a special permit application by the town for proposed development at the recently-named Constitution Park. The changes went before the ACCA last week, and will be the topic of discussion at a public hearing later this week. (See below)

Madison Board of Finance Meeting, 7 p.m., Wednesday, April 18, Town Campus (Agenda)
The agenda isn't up yet for this month's Board of Finance meeting, but, like I said earlier, it's a good one to attend if you're into following the money.

Guilford Planning and Zoning Commission Public Hearing, 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 18, Community Center (Agenda)
I've written a couple stories now about the proposed propane tank installation at J.J. Sullivan Fuel Oil in Guilford, and this will be the third public hearing on the topic. The public hasn't had much of an opportunity to speak so far at these hearings, so maybe the third time is the charm.

Madison Planning and Zoning Commission Public Hearing, 7 p.m., Thursday, April 19, Town Campus (Agenda)
This is the regular PZC meeting, which includes a public hearing for the aforementioned changes to the former Griswold Airport site, now Constitution Park

Am I missing anything? Something else I should be covering? Let me know in the comments or at
