Town Plan Vision Committee
The Board reviewed two drafts of recruitment letters (for individuals or organizations) created by Greta Brunswick of NRPC, making minor changes and additions to each. The letters are to be sent out by January 19, 2012 with a response deadline of January 30, 2012.
There was discussion regarding possible individuals to be contacted and organizations in the community that should be included, as well as the optimum number of members for the committee.
The Board would like the Vision Committee to be a quasi-independent group who will meet periodically with the Planning Commission, but have its own Chair, Vice-Chair, and Clerk/Secretary. The Planning Commission members will be working on updating the balance of the Town Plan concurrent with the Vision Committees work. It was decided that members of the Planning Commission will alternate as representatives to the Vision Committee.
An orientation meeting is scheduled for February 7, 2012 (location to be determined). The Planning Commission will devote the month of February to get the Vision Committee up and running.
There was general discussion on the proposed plans for a new Town Office.
The next Planning Commission meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 7, 2012 at 7PM (with the Vision Committee orientation). The location is not yet determined.
8:08PM- M. Hunziker moved to adjourn; D. Brown 2nd. All in favor.
Martha Varney, Zoning and Planning Assistant
