[ARCHIVED] Reminder: Questionnaire from the Island Avenue School Future Use Committee

Hello to our fellow Madison Citizens!

In the interest of helping you understand what is going on with the Island Avenue School Use Committee, we have committed to providing you with regular updates on our activities and progress. We will be using this medium to communicate our progress with the public. Information will still be available in the form of meeting minutes, as is standard for town boards and commissions.

First some background on the committee:

A seven-person committee was stood up in by the Board of Selectmen with a charge to provide a recommendation back to the Board of Selectman by 28 June 2020. To accomplish this, at the first meeting we set out a process that would:

  1. identify the limitations of the property by performing a septic system feasibility study, 
  2. solicit public input in public sessions, 
  3. combine the data points identified in the public session and the septic feasibility study to develop a list of actual feasible options for the property, 
  4. rank the feasible options to narrow down that list using agreed upon methodology to provide a small list of recommendations to the Board of Selectmen.

We met as a committee twice prior to the appearance of the Novel Coronavirus and the resulting COVID-19. This event significantly changed our timeline as we did not meet during the last half of March, the month of April, and the first half of May. When we resumed meeting on 19 May, our previous methods of gathering public input were no longer realistic.

In response to this, we revamped our schedule, deciding to present our methodology and the request for funding of a septic system feasibility study to the BoS as part of an 8 June status update. Instead of holding public information gathering sessions, we will use the town website to take information from the public via the form of two open ended questions

We remind the public that during meetings we will be able to take comments during the public comment portion of the meeting. To ask a question, please submit an email to the town and it will be directed to the appropriate committee member.

Thanks for reading our update! We look forward to finding a solution to this very open ended problem with your input.
