Selectboard Meeting Notes: Scoping Study Endorsed; Feasibility Study Withdrawn

Enginer Gary King is retiring from the Department of Public Works after 30 years of service.

The West Brattleboro Scoping Study was accepted and endorsed, with five varying options described, ranging from nothing to new bike and people paths through the backyards of West Brattleboro properties. Likely, a more simple approach of bike lanes and sidewalks will be attempted.

Brattleboro signed on to help the Windham and Windsor Housing Trust apply for a grant to do energy improvements at five local properties that they own, Brattleboro will apply for brownfield site planning funds, and a sustainable energy program feasibility study vanished from the agenda without explanation, but with discussion.
