Comprehensive planning committee to use $12,000 received from state

ADDISON — The Addison Comprehensive Planning Committee agreed that $12,000 of state funding for planning would be used, despite state revenue shortfalls, because comprehensive planning was considered a priority by state officials, according to minutes of a committee meeting held Jan. 31.

The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28, at Town Hall.

A preliminary assessment of community value drafted by Doug Guy will be the first step on the work plan form approved by the committee.

Subcommittees were given tasks and will report to the committee. Information will be used to complete the work plan form.

A subdivision ordinance drawn up by the planning committee was reviewed, with a survey compiled by SAD 37, and other communities’ subdivision ordinances. A survey will be done using questions that the group cannot yet answer, officials agreed.

Subcommittees will bring plans for data-gathering, potential questions for a community survey, a timetable for completing data-gathering and projected expenses.

A statement by the committee chairman will be included in the town warrant this year.
