Record number of groups to attend town meeting

KINGSTON — Get ready to cozy up in the commons area of Kingston Junior High School Feb. 24 and have all your questions answered about living in the Little City by the Sea at the 2005 Kingston Town Meeting.

Nearly 50 county and state agencies, non-profit organizations and community groups will be on hand to answer just about any question about what’s going on in Kingston, from the latest environmental efforts to public transportation.

“We are thrilled with the record number of tables for the 2005 Kingston Town Meeting,” said event co-chair Greg Platz. “Our goal is to provide a place for people to find out what’s going on in Kingston and how they can get involved.”

The Kingston Citizens Advisory Committee sponsors the annual get together of neighbors and organizations, which will last from 7-9 p.m. The open house will begin with a few brief comments from Kitsap County Commissioner Chris Endresen. Residents will then be free to peruse the information booths.

Some highlights of the evening include Kingston Librarian Susan Thorsteinson and her staff gathering input from the community on what should go into a new library. There will also be new books and DVDs available to check out.

Centex Homes, the company that designed the Extreme Makeover home, will have information on how it built a house for Kingston resident Roseanne Dore and her family in less than a week.

The Kingston Parks, Trails and Open Space committee will once again display a map of trails and will be taking suggestions on where to add more paths.

For parents and their young charges, the Gordon Elementary PTA, North Kitsap Boys & Girls Club and the Kitsap Commission on Children and Youth will have displays and information available.

Public agencies expected to have representatives on hand include the Kitsap Transit, Kitsap County Department of Community Development and Washington State Ferries.
