OTHER BUSINESS:

Recycling Center:  Ms. Mayberry reported that the baler is here.  They will do training tomorrow.

Walker Road:  Mr. Dalessio is hoping to have letters of support from the Planning Board and the Conservation Commission.

Planning Board Workshop:  Mr. Dalessio attended this PB Workshop session last Tuesday evening.  A group is now proposing changes to the Site Plan, Master Plan, Zoning, etc. They hired Ms. Carol Ogilvie for the evening and asked for her thoughts on different types of amendments.  It is based around Conditional Use.  Mr. Dalessio thought it was a beneficial meeting.  No decisions were made.  It is another viewpoint.  There is a lot to think about when making changes. 

Transportation:  Ms. Mayberry had an opportunity to look over transportation applications from five towns for grants.  All verbiage ties into Master Plans and Zoning.  It is a learning experience just to read the applications and what references each town makes to their zoning ordinances and the support letters they gathered from their communities.  Some town have set aside funding for these projects but then they apply for grants. It is good if they have the 20% match in place ahead of time but it is not a requirement..      

Fall Mountain Regional School District: Ms. Mayberry advised the FMRSD Administration met all day today to work on further revisions to their budget. She suggested to the Superintendent that they try not plan on any increases as the budget will be a “hard sell” to the towns. The County taxes have gone up, health insurance rates have increased, plus there are other increases the towns have no control over.

ADJOURNMENT:

Ms. Mayberry moved to adjourn this meeting.  Seconded by Mr. Dalessio.  With Ms. Mayberry and Mr. Dalessio in favor, the meeting was adjourned at 7:00 PM.

Respectfully submitted,

Regina Borden, Recording Secretary
