Sanchez called the meeting to order at 7:10 pm.
- Public to be heard – None
- Application of Fat Toad Farm
For the benefit of new PC members Sanchez and Duclos, White, Girard and Reid outlined the process for development review and, in particular, the review of the previous application of Fat Toad Farm. The PC tentatively scheduled the public hearing for January 10 at which the Zoning Board of Adjustment hopefully can also attend.
Duclos/Girard moved to approve the minutes of August 9, 2016 as written. The motion passed 4-0-0.
Girard/White moved to approve the minutes of November 8, 2016 with the correction to the spelling of Girard and inserting “no” between “had” and “comments” in item #5. The motion passed 4-0-0.
- Implementation of Town Plan
The PC reviewed the draft letter to Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission (TRORC) outlining what actions the Town has taken in the last 5 years to implement the Town Plan. Additional input was provided by White and Girard. TRORC is holding a public hearing on the new Town Plan on December 14 and needs this letter before it will approve the Town Plan.
- Enhanced Energy Planning
Sanchez explained that TRORC can offer assistance to only 3 towns of the 10 that have expressed interest in enhanced energy planning. If Brookfield is not chosen, the PC will commence revising the Town bylaws to be in conformance with the new Town Plan.
- Old/new business – None
Duclos/White moved to adjourn. The motion passed 4-0-0 and the meeting adjourned at 8:03 pm.
