On next Thursday night, 20th February, Waterford City and County Council will host a public meeting in the Community Centre in Cappoquin from 7.30-9.15 pm, to discuss the regeneration of the town and potential associated projects and opportunities.
The Council is hoping that everybody interested in the future development of the town would attend this meeting so to provide the Council with ideas for future development. The Council will also be using the meeting as an opportunity to discuss with the community recent developments and funding opportunities.
The meeting will be facilitated by Ian Dempsey of Prescience who last year undertook a property study in Cappoquin and is quite familiar with the town but who is also familiar with the broader rural development environment in Ireland and with rural town regeneration best practice.
Council officials will be present at the venue from 6.30 p.m. should any member of the public wish to discuss any matter ahead of the meeting.
Here’s hoping that the community of Cappoquin sees this as an opportunity to influence the future direction of the town and that all sections of the community are well represented on the night.
