By Andy Kirkaldy



ADDISON — What could be the final public hearing on a proposed new Addison Town Plan will be held by the Addison selectboard on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the town clerk’s office.

The plan could lay the groundwork for new zoning laws that would allow for smaller lots in the town’s biggest zoning district, and create permanent regulations at the town level on solar arrays and wind turbines.
