Post #230: MAC-related public meetings this week.

Posted on April 8, 2019

You can watch this week’s Town Council and Planning Commission meetings live on Cox (channel 27) or Verizon FIOS (channel 38), or by streaming, at this website.   (For me, streaming only works with Chrome, and not with IE or Firefox.  YMMV.)

On Monday 4/8/2019, at 8:00 in Town Hall, there is a Town Council meeting with two MAC-related items.  The initial portion of the meeting is a public hearing on the budget and on the proposed sewer and water rates.  (In a nutshell, the Town operating budget will go up about 6%; property taxes will go up 5.6% due solely to higher assessments; sewer and water bills will increase by an average of 10%)The last two items on the agenda will set the dates for public hearings on the proposed 380 Maple West (public hearing April 29th) and on extending the MAC moratorium (public hearing May 13th).

On Wednesday 4/10/2019, at 8:00 PM in Town Hall, there is a continuation of the Planning Commission public hearing on the proposed 380 Maple West development (40 condos plus retail at Wade Hampton and Maple).  Public comment will be accepted, limited to three minutes per person.  If you spoke at the least public hearing, you may speak again as long as you speak about a different topic.
