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
