Carnegie leaders hope meetings emphasize goal-setting and achieving

Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2014, 9:00 p.m.
 

Community leaders and residents in Carnegie are working to develop goals for the borough in 2014.

Council President Pat Catena said he would like to align goals among the council and community groups. A meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday at the municipal building to discuss the issues. Similar discussions took place earlier this month and in January.

“The community leaders seem excited and motivated by this,” Catena said.

Bridget van Dorn, of the borough's shade tree commission, agreed.

“I like the idea of them, and I think the first one was very interesting,” she said. “If it lets people say what they think is important to them in town, then I think it's a wonderful idea.”

She said she hopes council continues the meetings to advance discussion of community goals with residents.

Catena said he is unsure if meetings will take place monthly, but he does want to schedule more. He said he is planning smaller “subset” meetings that will focus on specific issues, but he also aims to have the larger meetings at least once every four months.

“Right now, there is a lot going on in Carnegie,” he said. “It's important to get everyone focused on what our priorities are — what we definitely want to get accomplished this year — and then look at our overall strategy for Carnegie.”

Any Carnegie resident may attend the meetings.

Catena also wants to hold weekly community walk-throughs once the weather clears up.

“We will walk through the borough and just talk and look at things and see what's working, what's not working and, hopefully, make some improvements,” he said.
