About Open Kennett

  • To share information to better understand local government and non-profit initiatives that have helped our region to grow, by pointing you to existing public documents, or, in the case of more complex issues, summaries that we generate for you.

  • To help you to become more engaged in these initiatives by offering ways for you to ask questions, share concerns, and provide input through our Town Hall


We believe strongly in the power of public /private partnerships to make our lives better by ensuring that citizens are informed and engaged. So we pay special attention to initiatives that are publicly funded in whole or in part, or that rely on local government.
