Residents Sought for Milton Master Plan Committee
A 10-person advisory committee is being assembled to assist the Milton Planning Board with the town's Comprehensive Master Plan.
The Milton Planning Board is currently seeking five Milton residents to round out the 10-person Master Plan Committee (MPC).
The committee will serve as an informal advisory group for the Planning Board during the updating process for the town’s Comprehensive Master Plan. The members will serve one-year terms until the Master Plan is approved by Town Meeting or the Planning Board decides to dissolve the committee.
According to the Master Plan Committee Charge, located on townofmilton.org, “Each of the following entities shall choose from its membership one member of the MPC: the Planning Board, the Milton Board of Selectmen, the Milton School Committee, the Milton Warrant Committee and the Milton Chamber of Commerce.”
The Planning Board member will serve as the chair of the MPC.
The other five members of the Master Plan Committee will be residents, selected by the Planning Board.
According to the charge: “an understanding of planning issues is not required, but a commitment to serving the Town of Milton and a willingness to listen and participate is.” The Planning Board is seeking to build a geographically diverse committee.
The members will meet at least four times with a consultant selected by the Planning Board to assist in the Master Plan process. Members will convey information about the conditions of the town as well as the history and culture to the consultant.
The MPC will also be asked to comment on public forums and draft documents. The MPC may be asked to vote on the consultant’s recommendation, according to the charge.
Interested residents are asked to send a letter or email Planning Director William Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to July 6th.
