Jim Beall, co-chairman of the Town Center Planning Group, resigned from his position effective today.

The news comes on the heels of member Mike Hobbs' resignation last week, after, according to First Selectman Jeb Walker, he became increasingly frustrated with criticism the group received from the community.

Beall cited "personal reasons" for his departure.

Walker said last week that the public hearing originally scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 21, has been postponed for a couple of weeks in order to allow the TCPG to regroup.
