Jamie Bissner, Vice Chair of the ATC, provided information on the application for the subcommittee. Members of the visioning committee will be selected by the town council. Following the November town council meeting, there will be five meetings, once each month, held by the subcommittee. Following the initial five meetings, the visioning committee will seek public consideration and input. The plans proposed by the visioning committee will be then taken to the county to be approved, which is done over an 18-month period. The most recent subcommittee group was held in 1996 when the Lake Avenue Specific Plan was adopted.
“Hopefully we’ll be able to get this thing squared away,” Bissner said.

The town council is looking for individuals who have had past professional background related to business management and community involvement.
