Canales said consulting planner was identifying all potential areas for additional parking subject to approval (by whom?) and recommended work be done on tennis court.
- There will be new requirements for Stockbridge Water and Sewer to meet. Canales said a tough problem
- Workers will have to have special training and be licensed
- White asked about possibilities of regionalization of services or centralization?
- White mentioned that Stockbridge gets a lesser appropriation from state because, based on full-time population, Stockbridge has high percentage of second homeowners
