UNITY — Unity is recruiting townspeople to serve on a committee that will guide the planning process, after authorizing funds for a new comprehensive plan at the March 30 town meeting, according to a press release.

“Unity is a very special community,” said Emily Newell, a local realtor and firefighter, said in the release. “And through this process, we hope to engage the full community in thinking about our future.”

Newell is one of several members of a land-use ordinance review committee, which realized while meeting over the last few months that its work should be based on a new comprehensive plan. After the town meeting, Unity Selectmen asked the ordinance review committee to think through who should serve on a new comprehensive plan committee.

“We are looking for a wide range of people with various skills, as well as an ability to be forward looking and to work well in a group,” explained Newell, in the release. “But on top of that, we need people who are dedicated, dedicated to this town, and willing to come to frequent meetings,” she said.

There will likely be weekly meetings over the next year. The goal is to present a new comprehensive plan to the town meeting in March 2014.

Unity residents interested in serving on the committee should email [email protected] tcreal.com or [email protected] .net. Official appointments will be made by selectmen.
