Planning Board Minutes, February 12, 2013



February 12, 2013

  Members present:  Chairman John Allen, Secretary Sylvia Wardwell, Michael Rossney, Alternate Peter Atherton

  Also present:  Selectman Victor Smith, Mia and Albert Strong, CEO Edward Michaels, Assistant to the Selectmen Barbara Grindle

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

  Map 7, Lot 21-2 – The Strongs wish to open a nano-brewery in their home.  They presented the board with a site plan application to change from a residence to a cottage industry.  They do not plan on making more than 100 gallons of beer a year.  It will be sold in labeled containers, and there will be no on-site consumption, no employees, and parking for only 4 vehicles.  They have notified the abutters, had a 1000 gallon septic system installed, and done all of the federal requirements.  The application was accepted for review and the $50 fee was paid.

  There was a great deal of discussion about the changes made in the wireless facility ordinance by the selectmen.  They eliminated the words “and approval” twice in Section 9, A-2.  The planning board will review any administrative consent agreements made by the selectmen for compliance with the ordinance, but do not have to approve of the agreement.

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

  Barbara Grindle, Assistant to the Selectmen
