    Chairman Randolph Stewart, and Mr. Harold Mitchell and OPPOSED: Mr. Kevin Hennelly and Ms. Cecily McMillan). DISCUSSION ITEMS Mr. Eric Greenway explained that the Work Calendar/Gantt Chart distributed today tracks three (3) initiatives for consideration by the BC Planning Commission in 2020: 1. Impact Fee Study & Adoption and possible amendment to the Capital Improvements Plan; 2. Comprehensive Plan Update which is more critical than before due to an ever changing, low-lying area environment; and 3. Housing Trust Fund, the key to additional attainable housing. Commissioners will discuss these initiatives over the next 12 months and forward their recommendations to County Council for consideration/adoption. Vice Chairman Randolph Stewart suggested the Commissioners’ Workshop be expanded to one-hour sessions beginning February 2020, allowing additional time to address the 2020 initiatives. It was agreed that a separate agenda would be created for the expanded, one-hour Workshops, and a new start time of 5:00 p.m. would be set. As always, Workshops are open to the public. Chairman Ed Pappas shared with Commission members that he has been appointed Vice Chairman of the Beaufort County Northern Regional Plan Implementation Committee.
