Selectboard Present: Peggy Pschirrer (Chair); Steven Dalessio; Cheryl Mayberry

CALL TO ORDER:  Mrs. Pschirrer called this Selectboard meeting to order at 6:30 PM in the Walpole Town Hall.  She advised this meeting is being recorded and asked anyone wishing to speak to identify themselves for the record.  There were four members of the public in attendance.

PUBLIC BUSINESS:

RAY BOAS:  Mr. Boas is driving the LCHIP Grant application for the Walker Road property to Concord tomorrow but there are blocks that need to be signed.  They do not know who the Easement holder will be at this point.  Various sections were reviewed.  Mrs. Pschirrer advised the Bridge Memorial Library Board of Directors applied for an LCHIP Grant and the Selectboard signed to support their application.  The Town did not make the application. Mr. Dalessio was uncomfortable signing the Easement section as Mr. Boas should contact either Mrs. Alicia Flammia or Mr. John Peska, Co-Chairs of the Walpole Conservation Commission.

Mr. Dalessio moved to sign the Applicant Acknowledgement for the LCHIP Grant application for Walker Road, Map and Lot #010-002-000 and authorize Mrs. Peggy Pschirrer, as Chair, to sign the Governing Body acknowledgement to the LCHIP application.  Seconded by Ms. Mayberry.  With Mr. Dalessio, Ms. Mayberry and Mrs. Pschirrer in favor, the motion was approved.    

WILLIAM CARMODY:  Mr. Carmody is present to discuss his property behind Shaw’s.  Reference was made to the Planning Board meeting of December 12, 2006, on the Proposed Amendment #1 to change Dearborn Circle and Burrows Lane Zoning district designation from Commercial to Residential B by amending Article VI Commercial District Section F. and Article V Residential District Section E.  The Minutes of the Annual Town Meeting on March 13, 2007, Article 2 were also mentioned.  Mrs. Pschirrer felt they need to go back to change what was mistakenly done but she discussed this with Mrs. Myra Mansouri, Chair of the ZBA, who suggested Mr. Carmody might go back to the ZBA to ask for a Variance.  The Selectboard would need to go to the next annual Town Meeting to change Article 2 as they do not have the authority to over-turn a Town vote.  Mr. Dalessio mentioned the Article should have excluded Lots #1 and #18 but it did not.  Mr. Carmody did research and pointed out some new information he found since his last meeting with the Selectboard.  The new lot numbers are #5 and #21.  He wants these two lots to have the original Commercial designation they had.  Mr. Dalessio asked Mrs. Downing to remind the Selectboard about putting in a Warrant Article for the next annual Town Meeting to clarify the language on these two lots.   Mrs. Pschirrer will send these documents to Attorney Jeremy Hockensmith to ask for a legal opinion.
