Ongoing Issues

Primax/Dollar General

A decision about this project has not been made. It is still an ongoing issue for which public participation matters.

Updated  7/18/18:  The Final Environmental Impact Statement (aka the FEIS) has been approved; the planning board is in discussion with Primax over design issues. Final materials, including visuals, are available in the library and at Town Hall.

There will be a workshop on Monday, July 23rd at 7PM at the Town Hall where Planning Board members will be working on creating conditions of approval.  There will be no public comment accepted at this meeting, but it is still very important to attend.

You can download the FEIS by clicking here. The appendices can be found on the town website by clicking here.

Planning Board meetings are held the last Thursday of the month at 7PM in Town Hall.
