By Andrew Stein



BRISTOL — A land-use zone prohibiting resource extraction is one of the central elements of the Bristol Planning Commission’s proposed town plan update. Due to this zone’s importance and a recent discrepancy over its exact boundaries, the commission this week decided to revisit this part of the plan at a special meeting on Jan. 3.

Acting Chair Chico Martin explained at Tuesday’s commission meeting that this was possible because the town plan had not yet been presented to the selectboard for its review.

By Andrew Stein



BRISTOL — When chairman Tom Wells resigned his position on the Bristol Planning Commission last Wednesday after eight years serving on the commission and four years heading it, the decision didn’t come as a big surprise to the selectboard.
