·         integration to a larger regional community.
 
Gary von Stange offered the following for inclusion in the vision statement:

  • conservation of land;
  • growth to avoid stagnation and to increase the tax base;
  • transportation policies that foster growth and address traffic;
  • address accessibility and mobility in the Mixed Use District (multi-modal transportation);
  • master plan for the town center;
  • providing a range of quality housing;
  • local economic growth and bringing employment opportunity (jobs) to the town;
  • providing municipal services that are efficient and responsive in an open and transparent manner;
  • Route 7 as a town street and a north-south arterial;

Following further discussion of the suggested bullet points for the vision statement and mention of addressing pedestrian needs and vehicular traffic on Route 7, not having the village as the primary focal point by having better definition of the town prior to entering the village, and the feasibility of relocating the fire station to allow more space in the village center, there was agreement additional bullet points are needed covering the following:

MOTION by Robert Roesler, SECOND by Al Gobeille, to adopt the rules of procedure governing meetings of the selectboard.
DISCUSSION:  Gary von Stange noted emergency meetings should be included in the list of meetings covered by the rules.

The rules of procedure should include posting minutes from meetings per the town charter which requires having the minutes available in the town clerk’s office. The minutes can also be posted on the website or available on DVD.   Al Gobeille stated a clear distinction is needed between an item listed under the “Announcements” heading on the agenda that is simply to be announced and an item that is to be discussed. Also, there should be separate adoption of the new agenda format and the items that are listed on the 3/27/12 agenda. Tim Pudvar suggested hearing the report from the Town Manager sooner in the meeting than later. Peter Frankenburg suggested the procedure include directing anyone speaking during the meeting to identify themselves and use the microphone so their comments are audible.

8.         OLD BUSINESS
Accept Approximately 13.2 acres of Open Land from Harrington Village for Conservation Purposes
Robert Roesler and Paul Bohne recused themselves from the discussion. Amy Dimetrowitz and Kathy Beyer explained the offer of open land for conservation to the town. A third party will hold the conservation easement. Discussions have been held with The Nature Conservancy and Champlain Land Trust. The Nature Conservancy is interested in holding the easement. Champlain Land Trust is not interested. The Harrington Village project has received preliminary plat approval from the town and is very close to final approval. The project is going through the Act 250 process presently. There have been discussions with the Shelburne Paths Committee regarding public access to a trail on the conserved land. A path will be specified in the conservation easement. The Nature Conservancy and the town will agree on the location.
 
There was discussion of the town determining the third party to hold the conservation rights since the town will own the land.  Amy Dimetrowitz agreed ultimately the town will decide, but as a permit requirement for the housing development there were discussions with The Nature Conservancy and Champlain Land Trust. Gary von Stange pointed out if there is delay with the Act 250 process or the town permit process, the town does not receive the open land. Amy Dimetrowitz agreed the land transfer is contingent upon ownership by Harrington Village.
 
MOTION by Al Gobeille, SECOND by Gary von Stange, to agree to accept approximately 13.2 acres of open land from Harrington Village for conservation purposes.
DISCUSSION: Tim Loucks asked if Vermont Housing Conservation is involved. Amy Dimetrowitz stated Vermont Housing is funding the housing portion of the project, not conservation of the land though they are open to a stewardship easement once one is identified. Rob Donahue, Shelburne Paths Committee, suggested a condition of acceptance of the open land include the right to walk onto Harrington Village property after leaving the conserved land (i.e. onto the sidewalk or roadway in the development). There were no further comments.
VOTING: unanimous (4-0); motion carried.
 
Robert Roesler and Paul Bohne returned to the meeting.
 
Status of Laplatte Primitive Path and Overlook Project
Paul Bohne briefed the Selectboard on the status of the overlook memorial project and the path along the LaPlatte River from Falls Road to the shopping center. The town received a $25,000 trails grant and approximately a half mile of trail with a bridge has been built. Investigation continues on how to best provide public access to the overlook memorial for Hudson Holland without compromising the adjacent Loucks property (the Loucks have expressed concern that their property value is diminished by having the driveway become the access road and parking area for the overlook site). Paul Bohne explained the exclusive easement issued to the Hayes (property owner) when the property was subdivided by the Elkins family in 1998. In 2001 the town purchased 7.2 acres from the Hayes. Tim Loucks clarified his concern is the functionality of the driveway to their house with added traffic and a parking lot, not the overlook memorial which is fully supported.
 
Tucker Holland explained the historic significance and beauty of the location as the driver for the Hudson Holland memorial, and urged doing what needs to be done to finish the project. The funding is in place now.
 
Rob Donahue suggested removing the parking and reason for cars to use the driveway to access the overlook by having an alternate means of access (from the trailhead by the community gardens or by bike or walking). Paul Bohne stated an overlook site that people will visit must have access and a place to park. It is possible an alternate location for parking could be found. Al Gobeille suggested establishing a parking area for bikes rather than cars. Gary von Stange urged moving forward with bike parking now and addressing vehicle parking in the future if necessary so funding and momentum for the project is not lost. Paul Bohne agreed the matter needs further thought. Staff will research alternatives. Tim Loucks spoke in support of developing a comprehensive longer term plan for the site.
 
9.         NEW BUSINESS
Authorize “League of Traveling Baskets” to Seek Bicycle Friendly Community Designation by the League of American Bicyclists for Town of Shelburne
Sue Grasso briefed the Selectboard on the establishment of the League of Traveling Baskets and the ‘safe bike riding’ events that have been held in town. Ms. Grasso also explained the application for the bicycle friendly community designation which needs endorsement by the Selectboard.
 
MOTION by Al Gobeille, SECOND by Tim Pudvar, to authorize the League of Traveling Baskets to seek “bicycle friendly community designation” by the League of American Bicyclists for the Town of Shelburne.
DISCUSSION: Gary von Stange expressed concern about any potential costs to the town associated with the application or designation. Jason Van Driesche with Local Motion explained the application is an evaluation process and provides technical assistance to help the town figure out what may be wanted in the future. The League of American Bicyclists has foundation funding support so the application and designation is equitable to all communities. There are no required fees. Rob Roesler suggested accepting the application with the proviso that the Selectboard is in support, but not making a financial commitment.
AMENDMENT by Al Gobeille, SECOND by Tim Pudvar, that the Selectboard supports the application, but is not making a financial commitment.
VOTING ON MOTION AS AMENDED: unanimous (5-0); motion carried.
 
Jason Van Driesche mentioned the involvement of Local Motion with the town, including the bike event in May at the farmers market, providing a trailer full of bikes to the school in May for the bike skills class, and working as a technical resource to the Paths Committee on projects.
 
Approve Financial Donation to Shelburne Police Patrolman, Josh Flore, for the 2012 Police Unity Tour
MOTION by Al Gobeille, SECOND by Robert Roesler, to approve a financial donation to Shelburne Police Patrolman, Josh Flore, in the amount of $200 in support of the 2012 Policy Unity Tour.
DISCUSSION: It was noted the tour is a challenging 300 miles, from New Jersey to Washington, D.C.
VOTING: unanimous (5-0); motion carried.
 
Establish Monthly Assignments of Selectboard Members to Approve Payroll and Accounts Payable Warrants
MOTION by Al Gobeille, SECOND by Tim Pudvar, to establish monthly assignments of Selectboard members to approve payroll and accounts payable warrants. VOTING: unanimous (5-0); motion carried.
 
Selectboard Questions or Comments
None.
 
Joint Meeting with Planning Commission to Discuss Town Plan Vision Statement
Dean Pierce reported the Planning Commission wants to discuss proposed revisions to the vision statement in the town plan first and then have a joint meeting with the Selectboard. Bill Smith clarified the Selectboard is interested in having a dialogue on the plan with the Planning Commission, but does not want to interfere with the Planning Commission’s planning process. Paul Bohne suggested that the Planning Commission look at the basis for moving forward put forth in the proposed revisions to the vision statement and apply this when reviewing the chapters of the town plan. The date of the joint meeting is to be determined.
 
10.       EXECUTIVE SESSION and/or ADJOURNMENT
