I’d like to thank Shelburne residents who have shown support for an effort by the Shelburne Citizens for Responsible Growth (SCRG) to collect signatures on a petition and present it to the Selectboard so that future amendments to our town plan may be approved or rejected by a vote of Shelburne’s registered voters. Several other towns use this system and while our town officials work hard; such a change would help keep our town plan aligned with the wishes of the majority of voters. At this time, additional signatures on the petition are still needed. If you have yet to sign a petition one can be downloaded from www.scrgvt.org, then sign and mail to SCRG, PO Box 751, Shelburne, VT 05482.
Petitions are also available for signing at Village Wine and Coffee, Special Touch Hair Design (on Falls Road) and at the Shelburne Supermarket on Saturday, Jan. 11.
Rose Garritano, Shelburne
