    • 6:05 PM: Solar Committee Update

      General Discussion...
      Big draft plan is nearing final stages of prep, and Marybeth will present it to the Planning Board, including a preliminary action plan, 2 weeks prior to next scheduled meeting for review and discussion at the next meeting. If it is not ready in time, review will be postponed until the following meeting.

      The plan may then be presented to the Colrain Energy Committee for review.

      Then there will be a community forum for outreach and input from townspeople.

      General Discussion...
      The CPA Committee gave a detailed presentation of the possibilities and structure of participation in the Community Preservation Act. They will continue to do outreach and more research before taking next actions. They are still looking for more townspeople to volunteer for the CPA Committee.
