The Selectboard received the plan prepared by the Planning Commission on December 6. A public comment suggested the Selectboard wait 60 days, “at least,” before hearings begin in order to allow residents an opportunity to read and digest the plan

Under 24 V.S.A. § 4385(a), the Selectboard must hold at least two hearings on the plan. The Selectboard can change the plan proposed by the Planning Commission but “substantial changes” require another round of public hearings, states section 4385(b). Adoption of the plan can occur at a Selectboard meeting “held after” the final public hearing. 24 V.S.A § 4385(c).
