St. George prepares to adopt new town plan

ST. GEORGE After working steadily on a draft of a new municipal plan for the past year, the St. George Planning Commission is hoping to have the new draft approved at its next meeting with the Selectboard on Thursday, May 10. The town has not had a thorough rewrite of their town plan in some 20 years, although revisions have been made throughout that time. Since the first public hearing of the new town plan on April 4, members of the Planning Commission have made revisions and met with the Selectboard on April 19. The Selectboard made several suggestions and sent the town plan back to the Planning Commission for further consideration. The Planning Commission is now working with them to finalize the wording and again revise the draft based on the discussion on April 19. The next public meeting about the town plan will be held May 10 at 7 p.m. at the St. George Town Hall, where it will likely be approved, said Planning Commission member Connie Kendall. The revised draft of the plan is available on the towns Web site at www.stgeorgevt.com. All changes will be clearly documented and listed for public review before the hearing which will be conducted by the selectboard. Once the new municipal plan is adopted by the town, the Planning Commission will shift their focus and begin a rewrite of the towns zoning bylaws, which also have not been rewritten in some time.
