Planning Commission Meeting - July 16

The Planning Commission meets next on July 16 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm in the Jericho Town Hall. Please join us!

The Planning Commission will be discussing some potential edits to the Town Plan. Here is a summary of the areas that they are looking into:

  • Energy Chapter - The state of Vermont has some very ambitious future energy goals and has tasked every town to play their part. With the help of the Regional Planning Commission, the Jericho Energy Task force have revised the Town Plan Energy chapter to reflect the new state goals and show how Jericho will help meet the goals. Emily Nosse-Leirer from the CCRPC will be attendance to talk about the current draft of the Energy chapter plan.
  • Healthy Community language related to prevention/public health. Melanie Needle from the CCRPC and Juston Hoy from Essex CHIPS will be in attendance to discuss how Jericho can incorporate language into the Town Plan to support these efforts.
  • The Commercial District project is wrapping up the Master Plan and Vision Statement portion of the project. The revised vision statement, below is very different from the current vision statement. As a result, the Town Plan, which explains the purpose and vision for all parts of town, will need to be changed. This process will begin on Tuesday. Below is the revised vision statement for the CD:
A Commercial District that creates a valuable connection between
Jericho Village and Riverside Village; providing a location for
mixed-use development and expanded commerce at an
appropriate scale for the community which preserves rural
character, the natural beauty of the landscape and distant views.

Please join us on Tuesday July 16. If you are unable, a video of the meeting, recorded by MMCTV, will be available for viewing soon after the meeting.
