The advancement strategies alsoinclude recommendations for monitoring progress on implementation that may result in updates to the Comprehensive Plan.Ongoing Review: During the day-to-day administrative activities carried out by the town staff, the staff may become aware of needed changes in theplanning document as it relates to the practical application of the recommendations and policies. If the needed updates are minor and do not necessitatean immediate suggested change to town policy, the updates can be carried forward through the public hearing process for the Planning Board and TownBoard of Commissioners to consider adopting the updates.Annual Updating: In addition to the potential need for periodic updates, the Town Board of Commissioners and the Planning Board should meet annuallyduring a joint meeting to review the comprehensive plan policies, evaluating the overall effectiveness and relevance of the plan. This annual joint meetingwill help ensure the Town Board and the Planning Board are working together on advancing the plan.
