Agenda Item #1 - Meet with Select Board to review impact fees.
Ian Macdougall of CCRPC gave a brief presentation to the group regarding impact fees, and discussion followed. The presentation and discussion included the following:
After discussion the consensus of the group was that the impact fee issue needed much more careful thought and consideration than the evening provided. Linda Baker noted that the PC would be unavailable to move forward with further research on impact fees, as the PC was on a strict timeline for the Town Plan update, with only 1 year to finish the grant work plan. Deb Lariviere suggested a task force, and/or contacting Sharon Murray for more information. Jim Thornton volunteered to pursue further assessment of impact fees, and to contact Sharon Murray.
