Acting chairman Smith brought the meeting to order at 7 pm.  He called for nominations for chairman.  The nomination, motion and seconded was made for John Allen for chairman.  The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.


Map 2, Lot 38A – Bill Grant presented an amendment to his original site plan application which was made in 2004.  He wants to add a fourth building to his boat storage business.  There is 8 acres of land in the parcel.  The board asked about the location of the new building,  it would set on the edge of the wetlands area, but is within the setback.  It would be a maximum size of 60’ x 120’.  The CEO has inspected the site and  approved it.  A permit was signed and fees of $100 for the section 2 site plan review and $5 for a building notification were paid.


Map 5, Lot 14 – Jeff Boucholz asked about putting a utility pole within the town road easement and was referred to Fairweather, the company installing the pole, for the forms.  


CEO report:  Tim Brown has many campers on his property on Caterpillar Hill, most of which are empty;  this is to be handled by the Selectmen.  Andy Gray, who has property next door to Brown’s,  had a permit for a building which has run out.


Ordinances:  Peter Neill will draft a cell phone tower ordinance if the Planning Board will review it and then support it at a special town meeting.  Motion made and seconded that he write the ordinance and bring it to the meeting next month for review and discussion by the Planning Board.  It will then go to the Selectmen for comment and review before being put out for a town vote.


There being no further discussion, the meeting was adjourned at 8:20 pm.
