MPG

Our planned guest from TRORC was not able to attend. We will try to meet with her on the 24th of August at 7 pm in the Town Offices to discuss the MPG.

  • MPG application is due 2 October.
  • We need to let the select board know that we are planning to apply; select board meeting on the September 5th .
  • We need to let the select board know that, beginning in 2019, MPGs will require towns to pony up a 10% match for grants of up to $10,000 and 20% for larger grants. The select board may want to budget funds in a reserve fund or line item. It would mostly carry over.

 

Town plan revisions

Next available PC meeting for a hearing to approval of the revised town plan is 12 October. Holly will warn that meeting as a public hearing.

  • We may revise this revised town plan if there is more input or reaction from citizens.
