A staff report recommends a 14-person panel that includes members of the town's decision-making and advisory bodies as well as volunteers from the community, with monthly public meetings over possibly 21 months. Staff would assist.
Among the topics for the panel's consideration: urban design, street design and traffic analysis. The project's scope may also trigger an environmental review.
Also on the agenda: an appeal by a resident regarding the alleged unpermitted felling of two significant trees and whether the statutory fine of $12,000 is appropriate.
