The Growth Planning Committee launched the first in a series of brief surveys in January 2021. Topics addressed in Mini-Survey #1 included 1) Establishing an area in town for businesses that cater to local residents (e.g. specialty food shops, health care, coffee shops, and personal care services such as barbershops and beauty salons); 2) Allowing food trucks in certain parts of town; 3) Identifying a good location for a farmers’ market; 4) The percentage of residents who work remotely from home; 5) Whether town vehicles should be replaced by hybrid and electric models; and 6) Support for large scale solar farms in town. Initial results may be viewed here. If you have not yet taken the survey, you are welcome to do so here.
