  1. Hello, my name is Henry Bonges. I am on the Milton Planning commission and we are looking to develop renewable energy screening by-laws per act 56. I understand you have an ordinance in place. Where may I find it on the website?

  2. Henry,
    I would be happy to send you a copy of the approved screening bylaw. It is not on the website at this point, but I will make sure it gets on there.

  3. Sue – could you let Holly and Dave know I’d be interested in participating on the Planning Commission if they did not get 2 volunteers? We had to dash out of the meeting on Wednesday.

  4. Will do.
    Sorry for the slow response. I don’t necessarily check this email regularly.
