A. Chapter 8.0, Economic Development.

After considerable discussion, Joanne Thome moved to amend the motion as follows:
o Paragraph 2, remove the sentence “These entities, in turn, are more likely to continue funding town coffers through tax levies and other property taxes.”
o Paragraph 3, remove the sentence “This would suggest that the town might benefit from some growth in those areas and from the tax revenue those uses would bring.”
Jerry Guelig seconded by amendment to the motion. Amendment to the motion carried (7-0-2 absent). Initial motion carried (7-0-2 absent).

Neal Nett moved to replace Chapter 8-18, Issues & Concerns, Residential Development as Economic Development, as presented by OMNNI, with the re-written subsection, with the following revisions:
o Delete “Issues & Concerns” in the title.

o Include a definition of “leapfrogging”.
o Loss of Rural Character, Paragraph 2, replace the words “will remain” with the words could be.
o Paragraph 2, delete the word “high”.
o Paragraph 2, replace the semi-colon with a comma.
