established January 1968 by the Town Assembly
The Community Planning Committee plans the “physical and cultural future of the community.” It works to plan long- and short-term projects for the village in conjunction with other committees, the Trustees and residents. The committee also has a few non-planning responsibilities, including overseeing the Memorial Garden (cemetery), the Community Gardens on the Sherwood Green (motion: 3/23/15) and implementing the Vacant Dwelling Ordinance 15.
The newest draft of the Community Planning Committee Guidance Policy–updated can be found here after revisions by the Committee done in November and December 2020 in response to community comments and the pubic meeting held 11/18/20. Areas highlighted in yellow represent revisions.
A second public meeting will be held on January 20, 2021 at 7:00 PM via Zoom to gather more feedback. All are welcome. The link for that meeting is the same as the regular Zoom meeting noted below. The final draft will be presented for a vote at the next Town Assembly. Email email@example.com to comment or request a copy of the current draft. We welcome your feedback on this!
The Community Planning Committee will hold meetings via Zoom until further notice. A link to the meetings can be found below. The Committee holds their meetings on the third Wednesday of the month at 7:00 PM. No meeting is held in August.
