• The study of governmental issues is a basic function of the League of Women Voters.

• A study is undertaken at the national, state, and local levels, and leads to both education and advocacy, which are the key functions of the organization.

• The LWV's process for study has acquired a solid reputation for its in-depth and unbiased exploration of an issue submitted to its grassroots membership for informed discussion.

• Consensus or concurrence of the members on various aspects of an issue results in an LWV program position. Such a position becomes the foundation for LWV advocacy or action.

As the Town is embarking on an effort to rebuild its infrastructure in the upcoming 10-year period, the LWVG proposed a study of the process used to determine which projects will be selected, calendared and funded. The study was to include but not be limited to:

• Planning process used by the BET and proponents of projects;
• Approval process and public involvement;
• Funding process and prioritization;
• How projects relate to the Plan of Conservation  Development;
• Transparency;
• Influence of state and federal proposals;
• Oversight of the planned projects, approvals, implementations, and results.

*This is a summary. 
  The full  Scope is included in the Capital Projects Study Committee Report.


• The LWV Greenwich is grateful to the committee volunteers and to the membership for their consideration of this important community matter.

Without the input and the incredible dedication of the LWV Greenwich organization, we would not have the insight into a very impactful issue.

Following the presentation, responses to questions, and a vote on the Concurrence Statement, the LWV Greenwich took a position on the Study recommendations.

The Board of LWV Greenwich is working to foster implementation of the suggested improvements in the functioning of our local government related to this issue.

Thank you to all who participated!
