Committee mandate:

On May 1st, 2021, the Town voted to approve Warrant Article 14, renaming the Revenue Committee to the Sustainable Economy Committee; expanding the roster to 9 appointments, of two years apiece, made by the Select Board; and extending the Committee's original mandate to explore, examine, and recommend potential ongoing revenue opportunities to the Town of Leverett, to include the following activities for the promotion of sustainable economic development:

One, economic data collection, analysis, and forecasting, and consultation with community
members, in order to recommend actions to the Leverett Selectboard and Finance Committee
that are aligned with community values, citizen and stakeholder input, and the achievement of
one or more economic objectives: revenue growth, cost cutting, or Town affordability;
Two, support the Leverett Planning Board in the development and implementation of a Town
Master Plan;
Three, organize and lead a business development subcommittee, with adjunct members from
outside this Committee, in order to meet with property developers and business interests
about opportunities in Leverett that are aligned with community values, economic objectives
and the Master Plan.

Previously ... in April  2019, Town Meeting approved Warrant Article 25, establishing a Revenue Committee “to explore, examine, and present for consideration potential ongoing revenue opportunities for the Town of Leverett.” The Committee is called on to “focus on creating and/or exploiting ongoing municipal revenue sources (other than tax surcharges, licensing, permits, etc.). Town infrastructure, zoning and other restrictions, and aesthetics will be considered by the Committee.” The Committee’s mandate was renewed for another year at the June 20, 2020 Town Meeting.
