The purpose of the Comprehensive Plan is to advise the Select Board and Planning Board and to seek input of residents and town committees in the preparation of a comprehensive long-range plan for the town of Pownal through the year 2030. The committee shall be responsible for the development of this plan with goals. Objectives and priorities and the plan shall be a statement through text, maps, illustrations or other forms of communication that is designed to provide a basis for decision- making regarding the long-term physical development of the town as well as to guide delivery of town services and fiscal management. The Chairperson shall call meetings of the committee which will meet monthly or as needed. A quorum of the Committee is necessary to conduct an official meeting and shall consist of 2/3 of the membership. Agendas & minutes of each meeting shall be submitted to the Town Clerk.

The Comprehensive Plan Committee will meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8:00pm in the DeWitt Room at Mallett Hall. Agendas will be posted. The public is welcome.
Public Forums & Surveys
Input from residents will be important as we develop our Comprehensive Plan. Public forums will be held periodically to provide opportunities for residents to "have a voice" and for the committee to understand what the upcoming needs and goals might be. These forums will be posted.
A survey will be developed and distributed to residents in a variety of formats. Information about how and when they will be available will be communicated in a variety of ways.
