Description: This commission is not part of the usual schedule, but they held their meeting right after the Board of Finance, so it was convenient to continue recording. The first hour is mainly a talk with Alan Plattus, professor at Yale's School of Art & Architecture and director of the Yale Urban Design Workshop. In the second hour the commission talks with the town Building Official Terry Gilbertson and Land Use Analyst Kristine Sullivan about a development project in the village district (the Flats). Toward the end they discuss the name of this commission, whether it should be "Economic Development Commission" or remain as it is named in the Town Ordinances "Development and Industrial Commission."There's a pertinent article from the Yale Bulletin & Calendar from November 2004. Also, some information about CT Main Street Center.
