Managing the pace, type, scale and character of growth.

Depends on scale, location, impact on transportation and community character, among other concerns.

Future development, if any, must mitigate its impacts and contribute to the community beyond merely adding housing. Advocate clustered development close to the existing town; conservation easements.

Diversify revenue sources for a sustainable future. Impact fees, property tax, sales tax, and user fees are all options.

It should be open to motorized traffic, but only within the confines of Bellyache Road. Safe and responsible operation of motorized vehicles should be enforced.

Redevelopment of the Broadway streetscape. Well done!

Town is largely moving in right direction. Budget should be prioritized by needs rather than wants.
