Pondering out future


Boston Globe, Nov. 8: Town seeks to woo hi-tech


An 11-member Master Plan Advisory Committee has been chosen to work with the Redevelopment Board, Planning Department, selectmen, Arlington residents, property owners and a master plan consultant to develop a long-term visionary blueprint of action steps for guiding land-use and redevelopment in Arlington.

The applicants selected to serve on the committee are Harris Band, Sheri Baron, Eric Bourassa, Greg Bowe, Joseph Barr, Pam Heidell, Ann LeRoyer, Charles Kalauskas, Bob Radochia, Carol Svenson and Monica Tibbits.

The selection team was composed of the Bruce Fitzsimmons, chairman of the Redevelopment Board; Kevin Greeley, chairman of the Board of Selectmen; John Leone, town moderator; Adam Chapdelaine, town manager; and Carol Kowalski, director of planning and community development.

The criteria for selection were a demonstrated commitment to collaboration, ability to commit to a two-year effort, ability to meet on average of three times per month; interest or expertise in one of the nine plan elements such as land use, housing, economic development, transportation, public services and facilities, open space/recreation and natural, historic or cultural resources; and a demonstrated commitment to public engagement and open communication.

In addition, geographic representation across Arlington was to be a determining factor.  

All of the committee members meet the criteria for serving on the Committee, and all bring at least two important attributes for effectiveness in representing the many interests this committee and the master plan must consider. Baron, LeRoyer and Radochia are also Town Meeting members.

Proposals from master plan consultants are being evaluated by the Planning Department and town manager.

The committee will meet before the consultant is selected for an orientation and introductions.
