Monkton news for May 14

MONKTON — Monkton Residents, it is time to update the Town Plan, the document that sets the direction and vision for how the citizens of Monkton would like our town to look into the future. You can be part of this process by providing input at an open house on Monday May 14,  from 6-8 p.m., at the Monkton Fire Station (3747 States Prison Hollow Road).
This will not be a traditional sit down meeting but rather an interactive opportunity to visit any or all of five different stations that will each address different aspects of the town plan that needs to be updated. We are seeking input on: the location in Monkton of commercial renewable energy projects (like solar and wind), affordable housing and senior housing, flood resiliency, village center designation, public transportation, walking and cycling, forest fragmentation and much more.
You are welcome to come just long enough to comment on the one thing that you feel passionate about or stay for the entire time and comment on every station, while you enjoy a slice of pizza.
The Monkton Scouts will be a staffing a kids’ craft table and snacks.
We have door prizes featuring Monkton businesses.
If you are unable to come on the 14th, you can still provide your ideas to the Monkton Planning Commission by mail or email by May 15.
Let your voice be heard.
The Monkton Planning Commission includes: John Brace Sr.; Marilyn Cargill, Co-Chair; Peter Close; Gayle Grim; Wendy Sue Harper, Co-Chair; Ivor Hughes, Clerk; and Lee Mahony.
This project is funded by a grant from the Vermont Department of Housing and Community Development in partnership with the Town of Monkton and Addison County Regional Planning Commission.
