Town plan hearings scheduledSeptember 14,2012Hearings set for
town plan changes
Select boards in West Rutland and Castleton have scheduled public hearings to listen to testimony on the proposed amended town plans.
In West Rutland, a public hearing will be at 6 p.m. on Oct. 15 in the town hall. A second hearing could be scheduled if needed.
Castleton’s two public hearings are scheduled for 6 p.m. on Oct. 8 and Oct. 22 at the town offices.
The amendments to the town plans were prompted in response to the overwhelming concerns of residents and officials regarding the proposed Reunion Power wind project in the towns of Castleton, West Rutland, Hubbardton and Pittsford.
The Planning Commission in Hubbardton is scheduled to meet Monday while the Pittsford Planning Commission is set to meet on Oct. 4. Following these hearings, select boards in those towns will schedule hearings as well.
Residents are asked to attend and provide their input.MORE IN This Just In
