Winter Updates

Since the September 27 workshop, the attention on the Comprehensive Plan Update has been on developing the content of its two special focus areas: Sustainability and Residential Neighborhood Character. The Committee for the Environment’s (CFTE’s) Sustainability Subcommittee has been working with the Planning Department team to prepare and review drafts of the Sustainability section of the plan, which will be shared with the CFTE and other relevant committees for comment. On the topic of Residential Neighborhood Character (which is broader than the name implies because it also involves environmental and fiscal matters), a partial working draft of the section has been produced, which will serve as the basis for a discussion with the Planning Board at the end of this month.
