October 9, 2012


Board members present:            Chairman John Allen, Secretary Sylvia Wardwell, Alternate Peter Atherton, Peter Neill, Michael Rossney.


Also present:    Fred Marston, Mike Allen, Mr. & Mrs. George Mattson, Charlie Wiggins, Nelson Grindal, Selectman Neil Davis, CEO Edward Michaels, Assistant Barbara Grindle.


Chairman Allen opened the meeting at 7 pm, with a quorum present.


Map 12, Lot 23A.  Mike Allen, of Prin Allen & Sons, presented plans for Mr. & Mrs. Mattson’s storage building.  It will be a 1 story, cedar shingle and wood, 30 x 35 foot  building with power and heat but no water.  It will be set 163 feet back from the high water mark on a concrete foundation.  The motion was made and seconded to accept the application and it was given to the CEO for inspection.  The fee of $45 was paid.


Discussion then centered on the progress of the 4 Winds/Patten case.  The town is being advised by DEP and they are taking a new approach to the case.  It is still in the hands of the lawyers.


Peter Neill asked if there were any changes to be made to the draft cell tower ordinance.  He was asked if there was any way that this draft could be integrated into the site plan ordinance.  A meeting with Tom Martin of Hancock County Planning Commission would help define if they could be combined or if they need to stand alone.  Time is running out for the cell tower ordinance if it is to be voted on at the March town meeting.  It was decided to set up a meeting with Martin this month to discuss the option.


There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:15 pm.
