a. Background and Task Force Charge from Town Council
Background: The Town Council established and appointed a Council Task Force on Strategic Uses of Town Properties (also referred to as the Town Properties Task Force) at its January 18, 2017 meeting. The work of the Task Force is to build upon and expand a process that began in June 2012 when the Council requested that the Town Manager seek the assistance of local real estate professionals to evaluate the highest and best use for some of the Town’s properties. The Town Council anticipated the Task Force bringing recommendations to the Council for review in June 2017 and action by the Council in September 2017.
Action Item: Review and discuss current charge from the Town Council, goals and objectives, deliverables, the outcome of previous efforts, and a proposed work plan.
