Montco commissioners to hold night meeting at Audubon Center

Montco commissioners to hold night meeting at Audubon Center




In an effort to bring government closer to the citizens, the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners will hold a meeting outside the usual venue – the eighth floor of One Montgomery Plaza in Norristown.


The board will meet at 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 6, in the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove. The center is at 1201 Pawlings Rd., Audubon. Owned now by the county, it was once home to the famous ornithologist and artist, whose works are exhibited there, along with some of the now-extinct bird species like the passenger pigeon.


The board usually conducts business on the first and third Thursdays of the month in the board room at One Montgomery Plaza, Norristown.


“We promised to make our government more accessible, more transparent, and more people-friendly,” said Josh Shapiro, board chairman. “One of the ways we plan to do this is to hold periodic meetings … throughout the county so that residents, who normally cannot make a weekday meeting, will be able to attend.”


The entrance to Mill Grove is at the intersection of Pawlings and Audubon Roads. There is lots of free parking.
