On June 7, I posted the above question in the form of a debate resolution.* For the most part, the affirmative side succeeded. Goal K of the Selectboard Draft (10 June 2018) of the Town Plan at page 12-11 now reads reads:

Maintain and enhance Norwich’s historic settlement pattern of compact village and rural countryside while accommodating growth at a sustainable rate, consistent with the size and scale of existing developments in Norwich.
The third public hearing on the Norwich Town Plan is set for June 28 at 7 PM at Tracy Hall. See Third (And Final) Public Hearing On Town Plan Scheduled.

==============
* RESOLVED: Goal K of the Selectboard Town Plan at page 113 should be amended to read in its entirety as follows: 

Maintain and enhance Norwich’s historic settlement pattern of compact village and rural countryside, while accommodating growth at a sustainable rate that is consistent with the existing size, scale and number of units in existing developments, the largest of which is 24 units.

The added language is: that is consistent with the existing size, scale and number of units in existing developments, the largest of which is 24 units.
