Town Plan Review:


Donna & Bethany will be meeting with Claire at Regional Planning on Friday. 




Reviewed draft of energy portion of the Town Plan.  Pete felt that they should state that energy management and energy conservation is always changing.  Bethany felt that it would be good to get information from other towns.


When the Selectboard reorganized, Ray Lalumiere was appointed as Emergency and Energy Coordinator.


Efficiency Vermont has various audit programs.  They have good information to educate people.


Bethany stated there were a lot of things the Town could do; such as an Energy Forum with a pot luck.  There could be contests.  There were lots of suggestions.
