Boards & Committees
Mansfield has a long history of citizen participation in government. In May 1703, the Connecticut General Assembly revised local town boundary lines to ensure Mansfield residents could access a town meetinghouse without having to cross the "bad and dangerous" Natchaug River. A commitment to citizen involvement determined the very boundaries of Mansfield!
