September 11, 2012


Planning Board Members present:  John Allen, Chairman, Sylvia Wardwell, Secretary, Peter Neill, Michael Rossney, and Peter Atherton, alternate.


Also present:  Gordon Gianinnoto, Nelson Grindal, Fred Marston, Charlie Wiggins, Danny Weed, Assistant to the Selectmen Barbara Grindle


Chairman Allen opened the meeting at 7 pm.  He reported to the Board that at the special town meeting held Thursday evening the moratorium was passed by a vote of 7 -1.  The only discussion was that everyone wanted to be sure that adding to an existing tower and maintaining an existing tower was exempt from the moratorium.


Gianinnoto had input for the Wireless facility ordinance.  He said that it should be easy for everyone to understand.  He addressed several points in the draft ordinance with the Board and they will take the proposed changes into consideration.  All agreed that it should be easy to understand and yet cover all possible issues.  It should also be enforceable.


Discussion followed on the letter sent to CEO Ford and the selectmen from the DEP and the Attorney General’s office.  The letter has been faxed to the town attorney.


It was suggested that the Board hire former CEO Ford to continue the 4 Winds/Patten case.  They will meet with the selectmen at the regular meeting on Thursday evening.


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