POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- A series of public forums for residents to learn more about the Dutchess County Justice & Transition Center (DCJTC) and ask questions have been scheduled throughout the area during February and March.

The first forum, hosted by the DCJTC’s External Advisory Group, will be at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb.16 at the Catharine Street Community Center in Poughkeepsie, 152 Mansion St.

As part of the meeting, the advisory group will receive updates on the DCJTC project, specifically the bond resolution proposal recently submitted to the Legislature to fund the design and construction of the new center. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to ask questions and comment on the project proposal.

In addition to the EAG meeting, Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro will host several town hall forums over the next several weeks, providing residents the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback about the DCJTC project proposal. Upcoming scheduled forums include:
