Planning Commission Minutes                     April 29, 2008   



PC MEMBERS PRESENT: G. Heyer, A. Lemieux, M. Hunziker, R. Wimble

PUBLIC PRESENT:  S. Taylor, Z.A.; G. Brunswick, NRPC


7:30 PM   G. Heyer called the workshop to order. The rest of the Implementation Chapter was reviewed and discussed.  Capital Budgets were talked about along with Impact Fees.  Both should be mentioned in the new Town Plan.  Energy was discussed along with sewer and water issues. The Planning Commission would like to set up a joint meeting with the Select Board before the first Public Hearing. 


The second part of the workshop involved discussion regarding a proposed Land Use Map. 

G. Brunswick brought various maps of Fairfax.  Many issues were brought up including:  Changing District boundaries; Restrictions on lot sizes; Zoning; Subdivision sizes; Planned Unit Developments (PUD); Growth Center; Conservation areas; Keeping natural areas; Slowing growth in Town as requested by many on the public survey; and Difficulties of changing what individuals can do with their own land. No decisions were made, and this topic will need more research and discussion.  The meeting ended at 10:15 PM.  


The next meeting will be on May 6, 2008.




Respectfully Submitted,

Cathy Raymond, Zoning and Planning Assistant
