Editor’s note: The following list of goals with discussion is the work product of the Town of Washington’s Comprehensive Plan Committee furnished at our request and printed here as a public service. When the committee started on the review of the 1987 plan, there was an announcement that the draft plan would be on the town website so the public could see its progress. As that has not happened, we will attempt to report in these pages and on our website, www.themillbrookindependent.com, the work of the committee as it progresses.
The next meeting of the Comprehensive Plan Committee is scheduled for February
