Mayor Martin Walsh and his Town Liaison Chris Breen will hold the first-ever Open House in Charlestown on Nov. 16 at 6 p.m. in the Harvard Kent Gym where virtually every department from City Hall will be on hand to take questions and resolve situations.
The meeting will have a development and transportation focus, in which residents can go up to City Officials face to face and ask questions about specific upcoming projects and proposals directly, as well as leave comments and walk away with information sheets detailing timelines and more.
In addition, other various departments will also be in attendance so that constituents can see all the services available now and in the future.
