Video will be available soon of yesterday's Land Use and Development listening session. I missed the first 20 minutes or so, but facilitator Tom Howard kept the meeting to it's intended 89 minutes. A lot of hot button topics came up which is a good thing in my opinion. Controversy gets people in the seats. Should there be residential development in commercial zones? How about commercial development in the agricultural /residential zone? Can ( should) we encourage "nodes" of commercial development with different characteristics and perhaps " buffers" between them up and down Rt. 25? Certainly no consensus was reached on any of these questions, but they are food for thought for the next Land Use focus group on August 13, 2014.
