Guest: Christopher Damiani of TRORC
Convened at 7:16 pm.
We reviewed proposed changes to add energy language to the Town Plan.
Preferred solar zones:
- Rte 12A
- Battles Brook
- Circle Saw
Looking for deference or constraint in:
- Conservation zones
- Rural scenic
Historic society: Should Spears Brook be added to historic place?
- Peth – This is one of Braintree’s original villages, that was largely destroyed during the flood of 1927. Prior to the flooding, Peth served as a key location for milling services in the area. It is now primarily a residential cluster, but features an exceptional scenic and historical value. [Extend this to include Spear’s dam and bridge?]
Adjourned at 8:10 pm.
Next meeting: August 10th, proposed public hearing
