Food Systems

One of this comprehensive plan's vision statements is to "provide sustainable and healthy choices for transportation, food and energy use." Associated goals address increasing composting as a way to reduce waste (Goal 3), and promoting the production of, access to, and consumption of local foods (Goal 5).

Housing an Aging Population

The town’s comprehensive plan addresses goals and recommendations efforts to “Promote Cultural, Socioeconomic, and Age Diversity”.  Recommendations include provisions for universal design and aging-in-place responsibilities as part of a town staff position. Information from an Aging in Place Task Force was used to inform plan development; see 2008’s Aging in Place Task Force Final Report, which includes recommendations for street design, transportation, housing, programs, and facilities.
