The Berlin Bulletin
As I mentioned last month, the Town received a grant to complete a Resilience Element for our Comprehensive Plan.
As communities adjust to increasingly extreme weather events, stress on public facilities, and higher costs of services, there is growing need to not only plan for these events, but to also reduce the impacts through conscious climate adaptation and resilience planning. We want to hear what you think about climate change, funding our future, and growth. W
e're holding a series of meetings focused on
Making Berlin Resilient
at the following dates and times:
March 14th from 6 - 9 p.m. at Buckingham Elementary School
March 16th from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. at Worcester County Library
March 18th from 6 - 9 p.m. at the Multi-Purpose Building
On March 25th at 7 p.m. we're holding a public hearing on Comcast's cable services. The Town's franchise agreement is up for renewal and we are required by federal law to hold a public hearing to obtain comments from our residents and business owners regarding
whether the cable operator has substantially complied with the material terms of the existing franchise; the quality of the operator’s service, including signal quality; their response to consumer complaints, and billing practices (exclusive of rates); and whether the operator’s proposal is reasonable to meet the future cable-related community needs and interests, taking into account the cost of meeting such needs and interests.
Berlin will also be hosting the second annual Worcester Community Access to Resources Expo (Worcester CARES) event on Saturday, March 30, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Berlin Intermediate School (BIS) located at 309 Franklin Ave. For this free event, the Town is partnering with Delmarva Power, Choptank Electric Cooperative, Telamon, Worcester County Department of Social Services, Shore Up!, the Salvation Army, Worcester Youth and Family, and Berlin Intermediate School to organize the event and offer assistance to residents in the area.
We hope to see you there.
