As the city develops, the Islington Street area could see the kind of rapid change that affected downtown. The city has asked Portsmouth Listens to hold small-group dialogues on the proposed West End zoning ordinances. The citizen groups will present reports of their discussion directly to the City Council as part of the public input process. This is your chance to join your fellow city residents and be heard! If the study circles have vigorous participation, this dialogue can create a vision for the area’s future — its scale, livability and creative vitality — for years to come as part of the city’s Master Plan. Each group will meet for two hours once a week for four weeks in February. There will also be a kickoff meeting the evening of January 20th at the Little Theater in Portsmouth High School, starting at 6:30 p.m.
