Opportunity for the Selectboard to appoint someone new to the PC
With the resignation of Chris Brien, the Planning Commission has a vacancy on its Board. Applications for the position are due by November 7, with interviews to occur at the November 14 Selectboard meeting. See Notice below.
The vacancy creates an opportunity for the Selectboard to appoint someone new to the PC, without jettisoning an incumbent. Some residents think that the Planning Commission does not adequately represent the views of many living in Norwich, particularly with respect to the drafting of the Town Plan. For that reason, in May, the Selectboard considered expanding the number of seats on the Planning Commission from seven to nine. See SB Agenda: Expansion Of PC By Two Seats
. After much discussion, the proposal failed on an 2-3 vote. See Selectboard Keeps Planning Commission At Seven Members
