News About Town: The Town of Matthews recently unveiled a new project last week called the Matthews Messenger. The Messenger is a monthly newsletter sent out by the town to keep residents informed on a variety of town topics. An idea first suggested by Commissioner Jeff Miller, the town estimated approximately $12,000 annually to hire an outside firm to produce. This would allow Communications Director Maureen Keith the ability to maintain her regular workload. See the first issue here, and a subscription button will pop up to subscribe.
News Around Town: If you missed the public meeting to learn more about the Stevens Creek Subarea Study, the Town of Matthews has an online survey for input. Learn more about the preserve, then tell the town what you think. This survey will provide information to town staff and VHB consultants on how to best provide pedestrian and bicycling access to the preserve.
One Good Thing: Between National Night Out and Matthews Gives Back, the Matthews Police are even busier than usual. Area churches and nonprofits are partnering with the police department for Matthews Gives Back, this time to collect school supplies for area kids in need. If your child needs supplies, fill out the survey at this link, or call the HELP Center (704-847-8383) before close of business on Tuesday, August 13.
