Chairman John Allen called the meeting to order at 7:05 pm.


Reviewed the minutes from January and February.  Accepted the January minutes.  Voted to make the February minutes a memo reflecting the discussions done with no quorum present.  No business was officially conducted at the February meeting.


OLD BUSINESS:  Gray was in to have the mylar of the Grayfield subdivision vacation signed.  She did not bring a copy of the Power of Attorney, and the property boundaries beside the Eggemoggin Country Store were not completed.  She denied any property dispute over these lines.  The lot liens were not discussed.  CEO has talked with the town lawyer and she advised that these items do not carry any bearing on signing the map. The mylar was signed and given to Gray to register at the Registry of Deeds.

Caterpillar Hill Initiative letter went out, but just picked up from the Post Office.

Barter Lumber update.  There is too much snow to see how much damage has been done to the landfill site.  DEP will visit and supervise repairs and Barter Lumber will pay for the damages.


NEW BUSINESS:  Neill suggested that we need to be more proactive and careful in our dealings with projects.  It may be the board’s responsibility to look at the 1993 comprehensive plan.  Jones feels that we should review the existing comprehensive plan and see if and where it needs updating.  Neill made the motion, Jones seconded, board voted 5-0 to review the plan and make recommendations to bring it up to date if necessary.  Secretary to make copies of the plan for each member.


There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:47 pm.
