A “Draft Scope” was received on March 3, 2020. Final Scope is due within 60 days, i.e., by May 3, 2020.
The Planning Board will discuss the scoping process at its March 12, 2020 meeting. All are welcome to attend, but please note that the discussion will be about the scoping process only — no substantive comments on the Draft Scope will be entertained at March 12th meeting. Subsequent to March 12th meeting, a schedule will be published that includes a time frame and opportunity for public participation and substantive comment on the Draft Scope prior to the adoption of a Final Scope.
