Pub rules for in Newport electric Case Montpelier apr the Public service Board dismissed today a petition by citizens utilities co. Of Newport seeking to have Vermont electric Power co.

The milk and lunches Are available to All students whether or not their parents can pay Tho costs. The program is Holpp a by Federal surplus foods but the lunch committee reports that they can always use surplus local Garden produce. Q. What is comprehensive planning a. Comprehensive planning begins with an accumulation of data about the Community. The trends and directions indicated by these Are Analysed in terms of problems and opportunities. Then on the basis of these certain directions Are established for the Community and measures needed now or in the future Are listed to reach those goals. Overall the plan provides a framework for the orderly growth and development of the Community and is designed As an action program for the Protection of existing Community assets both Public and private and for the development of More of these. Q. What is the value of planing a. Giving immediate urgency to the need for local planning is the state Highway departments plans for a Bennington bypass of . 7, construction of which is scheduled for 1968-69. Highway department officials have Given assurances that local proposals for the bypass route will be recognized but they must be presented by next july i if the department is to maintain its schedule for surveying right of Way acquisition and other preliminaries to actual construction. If the Highway department were to be the sole determining Agency for the bypass route it would be primarily thinking Only of the route that would Best and most economically solve traffic problems. The location of the bypass however will affect Bennington in Many ways All of which would be taken into account if a local planning Effort were made. The feelings of individuals and groups affected by the bypass would have a direct bearing on the commissions final recommendations. Thus a locally determined bypass route would be much to our advantage and would be one of the More tangible benefits of planning. In the commissions View there Are other though not so easily provable benefits by following a Well considered plan land is developed for its most suitable use the result is land and buildings that have or retain a High tax value. The recognition of present and future traffic problems and the development of measures to assure efficient traffic circulation add to the usefulness and value of property and mean a More attractive Community to live in. Recognizing present and future needs for Public unit Loties and facilities and establishing a financial timetable for providing these is a Way of assuring the most for the tax Dollar. By planning ahead needed facilities Are in the right place at the right time and at the most reasonable Cost possible. Q. What will be covered by the proposed comprehensive plan a. While there will be an Overall plan for the town the three villages will retain their individuality. Each of these will have its own plan and action program developed in detail within the framework of the Overall plan. It might be noted Here that the word a a regional in the commissions official name is a Little misleading because Only a single town is involved. Its use however is in keeping with the state a regional planning statute which enables two or More towns 1960 Falcon 2 or. Sed., Rah stand. Trans. M195. 1960 Corvair 4 dr., stand.

While the municipalities involved could finance All the needed funds on a local basis the Federal �?o701�?� program so called would provide two thirds of this or $17,-000, and the commission feels this Opportunity should be grasped. The remaining third or $8,-500, however must first be authorized by the municipality. It is this amount being sought at the special town meeting tuesday.
