Mr. Greenwood then asked Larry Fuson of The Hogan Corp., the Town Engineering Advisor, to proceed with the water/wastewater plan. Mr. Fuson told the Committee that he had updated the plan that was adopted in 1992. He stated that he would briefly cover the plan and would answer any questions the Committee might have. He then explained to the Committee the three maps drafted by his firm. (1) Planning Area Map (2) Proposed Water System (3) Proposed Wastewater System. After some questions from the Committee it was decided that their main concern is the use of an elevated storage tank. Mr. Greenwood then asked Rod Kelly of Barton-Aschman, the Town's Traffic Consultant, to present the revised thoroughfare plan to the Committee. Mr. Kelly went through the revised plan explaining that this plan is meant to enhance the current Comprehensive Plan. There were many questions with the main focus being on the width of the streets and the fact that the streets would be darkened concrete. Dennis Wilson, the Town Planner, explained that the street width includes swales and would be landscaped on both sides and in the median. He then said that the darkened or stained concrete is to give the impression of a country road. Mr. Wilson was asked to explain the next step in this procedure. He told the Committee that the two plans will be presented to the Board of Aldermen at a Public Hearing on November 25' for their approval. Then this Committee will meet to look at the capital improvements plan. Mr. Greenwood adjourned the meeting at 4:25 p.m.
