Braintree Planning Commission meeting of 13 Feb 2020
Attending: Jenn Phipps, Paul Kendall, Jackson Evans, Joan Richmond-Hall
Convened at 7:10 pm
We reviewed the goals of the Town Plan in light of our simplification of the draft plan.
Goals:
 Eliminate redundancy;
 Fill holes; and
 Write for simple clarity.
Questions for TRORC:
 Are water resources a required element. Does drinking water have to be included?
 Do we have to have a mineral resources section? And can we just say gravel rather than
mineral resources?
 Is ‘Use good planning practices within designated Flood Hazard Areas and Fluvial Erosion
Hazard Areas’ a required boilerplate goal for all plans?
 Snowsville now a Hamlet. We’d still like to seek Village Center status. Should that goal
go in the plan’s village or hamlet section?
 What are the likely planning implications for Braintree and other TRORC towns if H.926
(changes to Act 250) passes?
Paul will work on drafting sections of the plan.
Adjourned at 8:40 pm

Braintree Planning Commission draft minutes of 9 Jan 2020 meeting

 

Attending: Jackson Evans, Jenn Phipps, Paul Kendall, Joan Richmond-Hall

 

Convened at 7:05 pm

 

The committee agreed to an organization scheme for Braintree’s revised town plan. The scheme simplifies the plan by grouping its elements into three sections: (1) people; (2) place; and (3) prosperity. Each of these sections will have subsections including all mandated elements required by TRORC. One consolidated set of goals, policies and recommendations will be created for each of the three sections allowing consolidation and simplification. A table of contents was created reflecting this structure

 

Next steps:

(1) Paul will reorganize our goals, policies and recommendations for each of the three sections and will flag duplicates and conflicts. The resulting matrix will be the heart of the new plan’s ‘implementation’ section.

 

(2) Joan will add facts, figures and other relevant information from TRORC’s 2019 draft regional plan and data about Braintree to the outline created by the table of contents.

 

This work will be sent to the committee by email and we’ll review the work at our next meeting.

 

Adjourned at 7:45 pm.

 

Next meeting: Thursday, 13 February 2020 at 7 pm at the Town Offices
