RCL Master Plan Overview

O ne key question is:  What are the resources required to maintain the Master Plan the right way?

The town needs to first agree on what the right way is for Rye.   How the 2013 updates were made, communicated and the involvement of the public leave much room for improvement.

Examples from 2013:

– The Communication plan has been to post it on the website and a section in the Selectmen’s News Letter.

– Those who followed the 2013 were surprised when the Planning Board approved the 2013 changes as residents believed this was only the first of the two required public discussions.

– Only the RCL produced any type of summary to communicate what the changes were.

How some other towns invest in the Master Plan.

    Several people who attended the last meeting of the Planning Board (I was unable to go) told me that it was obvious that the members of the board had already decided to give Webster the go ahead. Granted, the need is there and the septic system is state of the art…but as many people know, it is just too big for the lot. As is the building at Foye’s corner.

    The building at Rand’s Lumber and the parcel on South Road are beginnings of the same kind of density proposed by the developer(s) as possible future RCDs.(see Mr. Epperson’s letter in Town News)

    While we want progress and know the need for it, it is rather discouraging to realize that the zoning laws, wetland laws etc. do not really protect property owners in too many instances.

    Why did we just put 3 million (correct?) into a Conservation Fund if members of Rye Boards are going to be swayed by developers into going against the Rye Master Plan?

    Maybe we Rye voters (property owners) should be more attentive to what is happening to the demographics here and how urban do we want Rye.
