I would like to see the development of the former Big M site in the hamlet. A development that would provide convenience and desired resources that will benefit all. Incentives to encourage that development may include tax relief, streamlined approvals and promotion of community support.
Promote and encourage the use of emissions free transportation. Promote and encourage the development of private and commercial solar applications.
Tiny house developments should be considered for future inclusion. Codes that protect the health, safety and welfare of residents should be maintained and enforced. Codes that support the preservation of property and maintain property value should be enforced. Zoning regulation changes should be considered that will represent future societal trends.
All department functions should be looked at for efficiency and need. If residents support municipal shared services with neighboring towns then we should pursue. We must maintain a high degree of fiscal responsibly to ensure our future identity and independence. There should be no sacred cows.
