The Board of Selectmen are announcing the formation of a Strategic Planning Committee for which we are seeking volunteers. The committee will be made up of seven members who will be tasked with: (a) reviewing and making suggestions for updating the Mont Vernon Master Plan, and (b) creating a new Capital Improvements Plan derived from the Master Plan. The goal for this new committee will be to accomplish both of these tasks by the end of this year. This work will be used as a template for the town in planning policies and expenditures for the next 12-15 years, once receiving final approval from the Planning and Select Boards, as well as the Town. It is anticipated that this committee will be required to meet at least twice a month, and is open to all adult residents who are interested in contributing to the future of our community. Please contact the Selectmen’s office if you wish to participate.
