Planning Commission Minutes – July 13, 2017

Braintree Planning Commission Meeting of 13 July 2017

Convened at 7:16 pm.


We reviewed proposed changes to add energy language to the Town Plan.


Preferred solar zones:

  • Rte 12A
  • Battles Brook
  • Circle Saw


Looking for deference or constraint in:

  • Conservation zones
  • Rural scenic


Historic society: Should Spears Brook be added to historic place?

  • Peth – This is one of Braintree’s original villages, that was largely destroyed during the flood of 1927.  Prior to the flooding, Peth served as a key location for milling services in the area.  It is now primarily a residential cluster, but features an exceptional scenic and historical value.  [Extend this to include Spear’s dam and bridge?]


Adjourned at 8:10 pm.
