Tonight: Woodside meets on Town Center's future

Town Council may create task force to analyze downtown's future

The Woodside Town Council meets at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, at Independence Hall to consider formation of a community task force to "identify issues and develop community goals, policies, and strategies" on the future of the Town Center area.

A staff report recommends a 14-person panel that includes members of the town's decision-making and advisory bodies as well as volunteers from the community, with monthly public meetings over possibly 21 months. Staff would assist. Among the topics for the panel's consideration: urban design, street design and traffic analysis. The project's scope may also trigger an environmental review.

Also on the agenda: an appeal by a resident regarding the alleged unpermitted felling of two significant trees and whether the statutory fine of $12,000 is appropriate.
