The Bethel Religious Display Committee is set to meet tonight. 

During their meeting last week, members briefly discussed if displays should be allowed on public land.  They're then trying to decide if applications for a certain space should be granted on a first come first serve basis, if there should be a lottery, or some other policy to be applied consistently.  They must consider if multiple displays will be allowed. 

Members acknowledged that there's a limited amount of spots for religious displays on town owned land. 

A few committee members say PT Barnum Square is the only public property that the creche can be located because of it's weight and size.  It appeared that some believe only the creche should be displayed at that location, in part because there is also a winter festival and people need room to gather.  Others believe there could be more than one display on the property.
