All in favor.


The Public Hearing to discuss the proposed Amendment to the Development Regulations was opened.  There were no members of the public present.  The PC members discussed the proposed amendment.  Following the discussion M.

All in favor.  The Public Hearing was closed.


The PC will pass the recommendation to the Selectboard which is planning a Public Meeting for August 15th.


M. Hunziker requested that all PC members be given the revised page after the Amendment is adopted.


The PC then discussed the Capital Budget.  All the items included in the preliminary report were reviewed and are consistent with the Town Plan except the Fieldhouse, which was not forecast until 2017, well beyond the timeframe of the Town Plan.  The PC noted that the $3000./year for sidewalks is probably much too low.


The PC reviewed the CVPS proposal for upgrading the line from Milton to the Fairfax Falls.  No concerns were expressed.


The PC acknowledged receipt of the proposed Georgia Municipal Plan, which will be filed in the Zoning Office.


The PC asked what’s next.  S. Taylor will ask the Selectboard and Brandi Saxton, the consultant working on the Capital Budget, what else is needed from the PC.

No next meeting was scheduled.  S. Taylor will let the PC know .


8:15 PM     D. Browm moved to adjourn.  M. Hunziker second. All in favor
