- Drainage/Road Maintenance: Professional services for engineering, permitting, and construction associated with road maintenance and drainage - To be funded from Free Cash - $250,000
- Local Comprehensive Plan Article: To see if the Town will vote to adopt an updated Master Plan for Brewster which has been developed by the Vision Planning Committee, a copy of which plan is on file at the Town Clerk's office and posted on the Town's website, and which plan if adopted by the Town Meeting would constitute Brewster’s Local Comprehensive Plan as defined in Section 9 of the Cape Cod Commission Act (Chapter 716 of the Acts of 1989). Or take any other action relative thereto.
Susan Bridges, President of the Brewster Ponds Coalition, and Sharon Tennstedt, LCP committee chair, will be providing background about each of these articles, explain why your vote is important, and answer questions about each.
