Bristol prepares to talk town plan, drugs

BRISTOL — Next week Bristol officials will hold two important public meetings: The selectboard will discuss the proposed town plan for the final time before convening formal public hearings and Bristol Police Chief Kevin Gibbs will meet with the community to discuss drug issues in town.
The selectboard will met at 7 p.m. on Monday, July 30, to review a final report of the proposed town plan that the Bristol Planning Commission issued. The commission last week reviewed the selectboard’s proposed changes to the document and decided the selectboard’s changes didn’t alter the overall vision of the plan. They supported the changes and sent the plan back to the board.
So the selectboard next week will hear any final concerns about the plan, then schedule two more public hearings. The board hopes to present a final draft of the updated plan to voters at the Nov. 6 general election.
The other big meeting in Bristol will be held on Tuesday, July 31. In response to numerous drug-related crimes and incidents in Bristol over the past year, Chief Gibbs will meet with community members to discuss possible solutions and measures to address the problem.
Town Administrator Bill Bryant said the meeting will likely begin sometime between 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Due to scheduling conflicts at Holley Hall, the meeting might be held in Howden Hall or on the town green.
The Independent will notify community members of the meeting’s date and time on www.addisonindependent.com when this information is finalized.
