4. Support for Industry and Tourism: Recent media reports have suggested that the Board of Selectmen may have diferring opinions on the importance of BOTH industry and tourism to Greenville Economy. Studies such as Greenville’s 1999 adopted and consistent Comprehensive Plan, and its town-wide survey of citizen opinions on this subject, as well as the 1991 Greenville Economic Development Action Plan (written by EMDC); the September 3, 2003 Greenville Industrial Park Improvement and Expansion plan which was endorsed by the Board of Selectmen; and numerous other studies all indicate two things: (1) Greenville’s economic development efforts should be to foster growth in BOTH tourism and industry in our local economy, and (2) the Town’s position on economic development has time and again indicated that we should foster growth in both of these areas. To clarify this, I recommend that the Board affirm its position on these matters by a vote and to also sign and submit a letter to the editor clarifying this position.

5. Financial Impact to Greenville of Providing Services to the Unorganized Territories: In an effort to begin to assess the impact of the Plum Creek plan on Greenville, I am preparing an analysis of what has happened over the past five years in terms of cost of services and related infrastructure used by the Unorganized Territories surrounding Greenville. I believe this analysis may be beneficial to beginning the analysis of the Plum Creek plan’s impact on Greenville.

9. Snowmobile Program: If we are going to have a snowmobile trail grooming program this year, some parameters need to be set for how it will operate; what equipment will be used; and long-range planning for our equipment in the future. I have asked our coordinator – Dave Vaughn – to develop such a plan for the Selectmen. Although our two oldest machines should be traded in toward one newer machine, I do not believe we have sufficient funds to make such a trade, nor do we have sufficient support by the community to finance a purchase. Dave and I will go over these matters with the Board at the meeting.
