Here is some information about the plan, also provided by the town of Madison:
The meeting will include an overview of the Draft Plan and then provide an opportunity for Madison residents to provide comments and input.
The Draft Plan was prepared over the last two years by a diverse committee of residents and groups from Madison. That work was based on a number of community workshops and surveys which involved Madison residents. Following the public meeting, the Planning and Zoning Commission will review and refine the Plan prior to scheduling a public hearing on adoption.
The strategies included in the Draft Plan are organized around the following main themes:
- Preserving and enhancing community character and quality of life
- Enhancing Madison Center
- Guiding future development activities in Madison
- Providing for conservation and sustainability
Madison residents are encouraged to come to the meeting to help ensure that the Plan of Conservation and Development reflects community goals. “This Plan is an important document which will be used to guide future conservation and development activity over the next decade and beyond”, said Christine Poutot, Chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission.
