Town Commission Feedback
Throughout the Regional Plan update, staff will be meeting with Town Planning Commissions. The purpose of these meetings will be to give a progress update and let towns know how they can be more involved. This month, staff met with Berlin and Fayston.
While discussing regional priorities with the Berlin and Fayston Town Planning Commissions, priorities came up such as:
greater guidance on energy siting and areas where renewable energy is viable;
affordable housing at a regional scale instead of by town, to ensure that people have access to services;
strengthening the Current Use program to incentive working lands and increasing penalties for removal from the program;
updated floodplain maps, showing fluvial erosion hazard areas; and
an improved Housing Distribution Plan that is feasible.
