Brooksville, Maine Welcomes You!



Brooksville Maine is a small coastal town with a laid-back community

lifestyle and diverse industries from fishing to plumbing to computer 

graphics and marketing.

We hope you will enjoy our  website!  



Hello, everyone,

           Join your friends and neighbors on Saturday, September 25th beginning at 9 a.m. to walk, run, or bike Brooksville's new dedicated 5-kilometer (3.2 mile) Exercise Loop. I'm guessing many of you already walk this route which travels over some of Brooksville's less-trafficked roads on relatively flat terrain.   

            Park at the Brooksville Elementary School.  The loop starts on South Wharf Road, continues on Henry Point Road, Wharf Road, Parsonage Road and finishes on Coastal Road.  Roadside signs and maps will define the loop.   Come anytime between 9 and 10 a.m.   Bring your entire family!  All ages are welcomed.  Gayle Clifford will be handing out orange reflective safety vests which participants can keep and are encouraged to wear when exercising or picking up trash on roadsides.  

            Stay healthy and I hope to see you there.

Agenda


  Comprehensive Plan Committee Zoom Meeting


 Wednesday 9/15/21   6:30 PM



 

1)     Go through Abbie’s to-do list to make sure we know how, when and who regarding all items: See Abbie’s list below:

  

            1. Inform the entire CPC committee about the completed sections, and give them a final chance to weigh in (which I believe has to be optional, so it doesn’t slow down the process while we wait for them to get “a round tuit".  Give them a deadline, and make it easy for them to respond.  Do we need to offer to hand-carry paper copies to them?  You know your committee, what will work?  The objective is to have them buy in, at least to the extent that they won’t create an obstacle later, for example by claiming they weren’t consulted.)

 

            2. Write a formal summary of public involvement.  My understanding is that this is a requirement and, like the Vision Statement, needs to be incorporated into the text of the plan itself.  This will need to be done before the plan is sent to the State.

 

            2. Write the Executive Summary: Make assignments for draft, edit, final production, distribution.  Set deadlines.  Suggest Sept. 17 for draft, Sept. 22 for edit, Sept. 27 for production and posting to website.

 

            3. Prepare the FAQ sheet: Make assignments for draft, edit, final production, distribution.  Set deadlines.  Suggest same deadlines as for Exec. Summ.

 

            4. Draft, adopt and implement a public information campaign:  Start date for launch can occur right after items 2 and 3 have been completed, i.e. as early as Oct. 1. Schedule components to conform with likely review schedule by State, so that as soon as the State says we are a “go”, we can very quickly schedule the necessary town meeting for adoption of the plan.  If the State gets the plan in hand by Oct. 1, it will be Dec. 1 when we can expect their blessing on it, if they have found it to be complete.  There is a small chance they will not, and we would need to do revisions to the plan itself.  

 

My hunch is that the easiest and most painless way to get the plan approved is to launch the public info campaign early (say within a month after we send the plan to the State, i.e. by Nov. 1), repeat the message often and in as many venues as possible, and put the plan on the regular March town meeting warrant rather than hold an emergency town meeting in the middle of winter.  If we do our prep work adequately, it should sail through on a voice vote.  Is a written ballot a requirement?.

 

To meet this proposed schedule, the following outstanding items need to be completed by Jarod before the plan is sent to the state:

 

            1. Jarod still owes me a bit of language for Chapter A.

            2. Jarod needs to “professionalize" the land use maps N-1 and J-2

            3. Jarod needs to prep the transmittal materials to the State, and get the needed signatures.

 

2)     Public Comment.
