Agenda Item #1 – Meet with CCRPC to implement Town Plan grant project

The Commission reviewed the draft contract between the Town and CCRPC for the rewrite of the Town Plan. Amy will contact Greg Brown at CCRPC to note that except for the dates concerning payment to CCRPC, the language of the contract was acceptable to the PC.

The Commission and Ian Macdougall reviewed statutory information regarding the Town Plan, and discussion included:

Ian noted that he would begin the Town Plan rewrite process by looking at the first two or three elements, sending out a draft before the next meeting, if possible.

The group discussed impact fees, and decided that it would be worthwhile for Ian to bring his presentation on impact fees to both the PC and the Select Board at the next meeting. Amy will contact Deb to be put on the agenda at the next Select Board meeting.
