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

CALL TO ORDER:  Mr. Dalessio called this Selectboard meeting to order at 6:30 PM in the Walpole Town Hall.  This meeting was being recorded.

Mr. Dalessio called for a voice roll call of the Selectboard present:  Peggy Pschirrer was present; Cheryl Mayberry was present; and Steven Dalessio, Chair, was present.  Also present was Sarah Downing, Manager of Administration, and Regina Borden, Recording Secretary.  There was one member of the public in attendance:  Jan Galloway-Leclerc, Chair of the Zoning Board of Adjustment.

NEW BUSINESS:

JAN GALLOWAY-LECLERC, Chair of the Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA):  Mrs. Jan Galloway-Leclerc reported that last night at the ZBA meeting they talked about getting some maps made.  Mr. Peter Palmiotto had zoning maps that she distributed to the Selectboard.  These were done when they were working on the Wellhead Protection District.  She found a mistake on them; they do not show the commercial area where Pinnacle View is.  These maps might have been done before that zoning change was made.  They were going to get 20 copies made besides enough for whoever on the Boards might want them.  Maybe a few copies could be framed and put out where the Selectboard would prefer to put them.  Mrs. Pschirrer mentioned that Mr. Lew Shelley is going to be making a wooden rack for maps of trails, conservation land, etc. that will be put in the hallway.  There are shelves in the hallway.  Mrs. Galloway-Leclerc thought about putting them up on the walls.  Mr. Dalessio said there is an obsolete map in the office.  He suggested having an issue date put on it so they know when this map was created.  Mrs. Galloway-Leclerc felt the legend should be removed as that was added when doing the map for the Wellhead Protection District.  She wondered if the notations could go over to the side as right now you cannot tell what is underneath them.  Dearborn Circle needs to be extended and zoned correctly.  Mr. Dalessio stated it would be nice to get an old road that might have been “thrown-up” in Drewsville on the map but that was not resolved. There is not much commercial land left.  The maps were reviewed for accuracy.  Mrs. Galloway-Leclerc will do some research on a few areas before having the maps printed.  Mr. Dalessio advised the map has to be accurate before it is hung up because a developer/realtor will look at it and assume it is. When the map is accurate, he is not opposed to having it printed.  The map does not go down south far enough because it is not picking up the Industrial Zone.  Maybe they should consider having a second map or the existing map should be larger?  Mrs. Galloway-Leclerc will continue working on the map until some of the issues mentioned are resolved.
