In spite of the weather hysteria, the Grafton Planning Board held its regular meeting on Monday at 7 pm under the guidance of Planning Board Chairman Tom Withcuskey. There were two new faces at this meeting. Linda Laveway was appointed at the Organizational meeting on January 5 to fill the vacancy caused by Pete Gundrum’s resignation in early June for personal reasons. Allison Kirchner is the new Secretary to the Planning Board, replacing Jessica Crandall, who left in order to concentrate on her job and her academics. There was no one in the audience, probably because of the dire weather reports. All Board members were present except Arthur Surprise. There was no snow.

In the year 2115, 100,000 people will live in the city of Recolteville (meaning “city of harvest” in French) located on the New York State shoreline of Lake Champlain. The city uses self-sustaining farming techniques to create food, such as kale and fish, for its residents. The majority of the city runs on environmentally friendly fuel cells, and the rest runs on solar power. Residents enjoy the scenic views of the city on a Maglev train and utilize a communication system with hologram technology to bring concerts and sporting events to its entertainment arena.
