SHOREHAM - Residents attending the VCRD Community Visit meeting in early December mulled over a dozen options derived from community forums held at the beginning of the process in October.
Their task was to decide which potential projects would compliment their vision for the future of the town, what combination of topics could fit together to maximize the benefits to this diverse community, and what issues they were willing to work on.
By the evening's end, three topics were chosen around which task forces have formed. The three topics are advanced economic development, improvements to civic participation, and organizing a town energy committee.
VCRD will return to the town of Shoreham for a final time on Thursday, Jan. 7 . The meeting will be held at the Shoreham Elementary School from 6:30-9 p.m.
The Shoreham Improve Civic Participation Task Force will look at ways to improve town communications and support volunteerism in Shoreham.
The Shoreham Energy Task Force will explore energy and efficiency opportunities for the town and its residents, encourage the development of renewable energy-hydro, wind, biofuels, solar, methane digesters, and investigate the formation of a town energy coop to build a community energy project.
