Our draft comp plan has identified the "ultimate" size of the town by creating an urban growth boundary and not focus on a specific rate of growth. The Planning Commission decided this ultimate size would be such that the character of the town would be preserved and of such a size that services could be provided in an efficient and economical manner. Now the commission has waffled after some public comment and possibly wants to put a limit on the rate of growth (population). I have been asked to reserach this issue. How do you do it? Limit s/f home permits? Is it legal if there are no issues with capacity of services? How do you calculate the growth in any one year? I have lots of ideas but I need to hear from those of you who maybe have already done something like this. Thanks.
