Scholarship Fund

The Sam Jacobs Scholarship


When you hear the name Sam Jacobs you cannot help but think of The Walpole Schools and the Fall Mountain Regional School District. Mr. Jacobs has been a great teacher, principal, and most importantly a wonderful role model for our school, district and community for forty-plus years. Our children have benefited from his devotion to academic excellence, integrity, kindness and community service. 

In order to honor Mr. Jacobs, last year a group of parents formed the Sam Jacobs Scholarship committee. The committee created two scholarships which were awarded to two  Fall Mountain Regional High School seniors.These are $1,000/year scholarships that will be given to two students annually who plan to attend a post-secondary school. The applicants must have graduated from Walpole Elementary School.  The applicants must show good moral character, involvement in community, and compassion for fellow students. Students are assisted to apply by the FMRHS guidance department. We hope when the pandemic ends  to have an annual community gathering as a fundraising event for this scholarship fund, but this year we are limited and are simply asking for donations. Helping to fund the Sam Jacobs Scholarship will continue to honor a man who has given so much to our children and our community.

Sam began his career at Fall Mountain as an Agriculture and Horticulture teacher in 1980. He immediately had a positive effect upon young people. It was easy to recognize his passion for career education and his curriculum. His iconic smile and genuine affection for others was a great motivator for teens. Whether it was leading a group of Future Farmers of America to Kansas City, Missouri for the national competition, or raising a new barn for the high school program, Sam was at the forefront of each success. It wasn’t uncommon for him to personally  transport kids to the state events, and encourage them to become state officers in the organization.   

Sam joined the Walpole Schools in 1997 as principal, bringing that personal desire to improve others’ lives.  He is known for being fully involved with our students and families. Mr. Jacobs has always made the effort to know each and every kindergartener and their family by name,  developing that relationship throughout their school career.  In Walpole, students know they will always be cared for and families know they have an advocate because Mr. Jacobs is their biggest supporter. Our Mr. Jacobs was with our children at school dances, sporting events, the 8th grade White Water Rafting Trips, Camp Takodah, and even became a human Sundae for a reading challenge! He has been right there with the students enjoying every minute of the fun. Who can forget the wonderful Air Band performances starring Mr. Jacobs?  He has made all of our lives so much brighter. Our school is  an amazing place because of his leadership.   

These are only some of the outstanding achievements that Sam has had in his career. Each one of these moments has always been about giving our children the opportunities of a lifetime. Please consider carrying on Sam’s legacy by making a donation to the Sam Jacobs Scholarship Fund  Your donation is an opportunity to share in a tribute to a man who has meant so much to so many people.  Donation checks can be made out to the Fall Mountain Scholarship Fund with the memo line of Sam Jacobs Scholarship, and mailed to Fall Mountain Scholarship Fund c/o FMRHS 134 FMRHS Road, Langdon, NH 03602. Please also look for a Go Fund Me that is being  shared on social media if this is an easier way for you to donate.

Gratefully, The Sam Jacobs Scholarship Committee

Beware of Scam Calls from Walpole Numbers

I just received the following email. Since I had two of these Walpole number calls today, it certainly seemed worthy of an alert. The stated mission of The Walpolean is “Keeping the community up to date on community issues”, and this would definitely fit the bill! Thank you, Debbie. – Lil

Hi Lil,

This is something you might want to warn people about on the Walpolean. I’m probably not the only one getting calls.

I’ve gotten a few calls that appear to be from a Walpole number, from individuals with an Indian accent who start by asking, is this Deborah Hutchings, and then say, “This is Alex (or Jennifer, or another name) from Medicare, calling to see if you received your new Medicare card.” This is a scam! Medicare doesn’t call people. Anyone receiving a similar call should just hang up. I also reported the fraud yesterday.

Here are some articles about the fraud:

Selectboard Meeting Minutes – 3/25/21

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

CALL TO ORDER: Ms. Mayberry, Chair of the Walpole Selectboard, called this meeting via Zoom to order at 6:30 PM.  The Selectboard members are in three separate locations.  Also attending this meeting is Mrs. Sarah Downing, Manager of Administration, in the Walpole Town Hall and Mrs. Regina Borden, Recording Secretary, by telephone at a separate location.  This meeting is being recorded by the Town.

Ms. Mayberry called for a voice roll call of the Selectboard present:  Steven Dalessio was present; Peggy Pschirrer was present and Ms. Mayberry was present.  This meeting will be in accordance with Virtual Meetings, Emergency Order #12, which has been effective since March 2020.

OLD BUSINESS:

ELM STREET WATER/SEWER and REPAVING PROJECT:  Ms. Mayberry reported when the Selectboard met last week, they briefly discussed the Elm Street Water/Sewer and Repaving Project and some ideas were brought forward.  At the end of this discussion it was agreed they would work on a comprehensive plan and then do a public presentation.  They made no decisions regarding Elm Street.  They are thinking about making Elm Street a one-way street so it would meet the standard width of the road.  At this time they are not prepared to discuss the trees or removal of the dying trees.  They will bring in a tree expert to do an assessment of the trees on and around the Common to make a determination as to their overall health.  Mr. Ray Boas had requested time to read his letter therefore Ms. Mayberry turned the meeting over to him.

Mr. Boas advised he had a letter to read into tonight’s minutes.  He desired the full text to be included in the body of the minutes, and not as an attachment to the minutes.  This evening’s minutes will not be approved until the meeting on April 1st.  After approval, it has often taken up to five days to get the approved minutes out to the public.  Thus, he will probably be posting his comments on-line sooner.  

Mr. Ray Boas read his Statement to Walpole, NH Selectboard, dated 25 March 2021.

Ms. Mayberry asked if anyone had anything to add that was not covered in Mr. Boas’ letter.

Alejandra Pallais thanked Ray for bringing this to their attention.  Widening streets creates more traffic and more traffic speed.  People use the Common for walking, biking and visiting.  It is a question of safety; safety hazards.  

Peter Johnson lives at Boggy Meadow Farm on River Road.  His wife, Susan, is a member of the Hubbard Family.  They are interested and concerned about what happens in the Village.  They fully support Ray and would not like to see the widening of that street.  Also, is the granite curbing being billed to the landowners?  

The Zoom meeting became very chaotic as it was being hacked.

Mr. Dalessio moved that the Selectboard meeting be recessed for fifteen (15) minutes. Seconded by Mrs. Pschirrer.  On a voice roll call vote with Mr. Dalessio, Mrs. Pschirrer and Ms. Mayberry in favor, the motion was approved at 6:58 PM.  

Ms. Mayberry called the recessed regular Selectboard meeting to order at 7:25 PM.  

Joanna Andros walked around the Common today and was thinking about taking a portion off one side and how that would affect the symmetry of it.  If you widen that road it will change the symmetry.  She thinks it would not be a good idea.  She thinks our Common which is such a wonderful part of our Town would be diminished.  She supports the idea of finding other ways to accommodate the vehicles.  

Craig Vickers asked if somebody could do a short re-coup and the reasoning behind the need for this as he came in late.  It seems like we are solving a problem that does not exist.  There have to be other solutions.  It has been fine since he was a kid playing on the Common.  He does not think it can be under-stated how detrimental this would be.  How many residents around the Common were polled?  Ms. Mayberry explained the discussion about Elm Street came up last week at the Selectboard Meeting and they made no decisions at that time.  They were going to have a planning meeting with further discussions and then have a meeting with the public, especially the residents around the Common, about the plan.  The Selectboard has not made any decisions about the trees or widening the road.  Mr. Boas wrote the letter.  People are weighing in on what may or may not happen.            

Lil DeCoste commented that first of all there needs to be a better way than expanding their road as she feels that is unnecessary. She assumes the Road Agent had a reason for recommending this.  She is disappointed that he is not present to explain his position.  Mr. Dalessio had a conversation with Mr. Rau this morning.  As stated at the last meeting, his rationale is that he believes the road is a two-lane but it does not meet the standards.  He wanted to widen the road so two lanes could safely go back-and-forth on Elm Street.  At the last Selectboard meeting, Mr. Rau presented this as a concept.  The road would be easier to plow.  There was no other discussion.  The Selectboard had no previous notice of this.  They said they would have a pre-planning meeting and then they would meet with the abutters and residents out on the Common on the final plan.  It was just a concept.  This worked well when they re-built Pleasant Street.  Mrs. Pschirrer said they are overlooking that they were planning the Water and Sewer upgrade for several years as it is essential on that street.  The budgeting was done for this year.  The only decision made is that beginning in May they will tear-up the street and repair all the water and sewer lines, repair the drainage which now floods the Common and then repave the roads.  Those were the only plans that were made.  The other things that came up were “let’s do this and that”.  Mrs. DeCoste pointed out that rather than hear one side, it is important to hear their side as well.  Ms. Mayberry said the overall decision lies with the Selectboard and they can share their opinions with Mr. Rau as well.

Mr. David DeCoste does not believe there are more than four cars going north on that road in any one day.  Mr. Dalessio noted it is a technical point with Mr. Rau.  Mrs. DeCoste noted that they are not hearing from Mr. Rau as he is not present at this meeting and that is important.

Sue Fillion can urge them as they go through their planning, with all due respect to the Road Agent, that there is a lot of movement in cities and villages for people to take back the streets and have easy access.  If you widen the street, cars will go faster.  She is a planner.  She does not know of any place where they are widening their roads. Instead, they are trying to shrink them to make them safer.  They should figure out what they can do without widening that road.

Lucy Weber wanted to second the many comments people have made.  She thought about making a circle.  She does not see why it could not be a one-way traffic road and the Town would remain walkable.  The width would remain the same.  Her plea is do not change the character of the Common or the sidewalks or the green spaces around us.  That is the “heart” of the Village for all of them.  It would be nice if they do not change it.

Jennifer Palmiotto echos that already there is a lot of traffic on Elm Street.  Sometimes large tractor trailers go 35 MPH.  Her house shakes.  The roads around them are not made to have traffic going so fast.  The widening would take away from the wonderful human element they have.  A lot has been written about how people are comfortable with spaces that are not that wide.  She understands why the Road Agent would want to widen the road. But, for those in the neighborhood, it would be uncomfortable.  They would be losing a valuable, irreplaceable resource in Walpole.  

David Chioffi noted there are a lot of folks involved in this meeting.  He wanted to give the Selectboard a sense of what people attending this meeting are concerned with.  He askef for those that are opposed to the widening of Elm Street to raise their hands.  He asked the Selectboard to scan down and look at the pictures.  It did not appear that any hands were not raised.  Ms. Mayberry said thank you.  Mr. Dalessio asked who is in favor?  It appeared one person was.  Mr. Dalessio said thank you. 

Liz Collingsworth lives on Elm Street and never noticed any signage that stopped Elm Street from being a one-way street.  Codify it and make it one-way.  It seems like an easy solution.

Felicia Phillips lives on Main Street.  Safety has to be considered first and foremost.  The one-way street is the excellent way to go.

Leroy Watson commented about the water and sewer work.  He said to predict where they will have problems with the trees.  We could end up damaging those trees and they might have to be taken down.  Before a decision is made, it would be good to have a study done of potential damage from the water and sewero work.

Stefan Stefanko has lived on Elm Street for thirteen years and loves it there.  Cars can move over.  He used to live in Philadelphia. We do not want to destroy this lovely part of our Town.

Jim Maclean loves working in this Town and he has been for about half of his life.  Mr. Rau has also worked in this Town for about half of his life and he wants the best for everybody.  It take a little width to make sure vehicles get by each other safely.  People used to pull over years ago; that does not happen today.  He understands where some people are coming from, but it is not there anymore. We have this beautiful downtown that will not be changed except this little bit of width.  Years ago on the north side of the Common, it was one-way traffic on Sunday.  If they want a traffic count, the Town can get them some numbers.  Let us listen to all the options. 

Rick Reynolds lives at 67 Elm Street. He asked to make the street one-way.  Some people assume it is one-way.  Elm Street is one-way where he lives.  There would be no need to change the Common or the trees.  He would recommend one-way; it is the preferred way of moving forward.       

Ms. Mayberry thanked everybody for attending this meeting and making comments for them to think about.  The Selectboard will now continue with their regular meeting.

REFUND:  

MAP and LOT #021-018-000:  Mrs. Pschirrer moved to grant the Property Tax Refund in the amount of $5.27 for the owner(s) of Map and Lot #021-018-000.  This is due to an overpayment.  Seconded by Mr. Dalessio.  Ms. Mayberry asked if there was any discussion.  There was none.  On a voice roll call vote with Mrs. Pschirrer, Mr. Dalessio and Ms. Mayberry in favor, the motion was approved.

OLD BUSINESS (Continued):

North Walpole Library Lease:  Ms. Mayberry reported thecorrections in the lease were corrected.   Mrs. Pschirrer requested that Mrs. Downing send this lease to the North Walpole Village District Board of Commissioners and to the President of the Library Board tomorrow.  

Vilas Bridge Joint Meeting:  A request was received from the Rockingham Selectboard, Development Office and Southwest Region Planning Commission to schedule a Joint Meeting to discuss the Vilas Bridge.  Neither the New Hampshire Governor nor the Vermont Governor responded to their last letter.  There was a consensus of the Walpole Selectboard to invite them to attend a Joint Meeting on Thursday, April 8th at 6:30 PM.  Mr. Shane O’Keefe would like to volunteer if they form a committee.   

Recycling Center Retail Sales:  Mrs. Pschirrer had asked for more information on this and Ms. Mayberry provided that to her.  Mrs. Pschirrer has several concerns.  One is the Recycling Center will become a retail sales outlet.  They would like to think the environmental soaps and other products will sell but she does not want to be in the retail sales business or compete with other businesses selling the same type products.  She is also concerned with handling more cash. Therefore, would prefer going to a “no cash” operation as it would be safer with less problems.  Our attendants are moving around the facility constantly.  Mr. Dalessio agrees with moving toward a “no cash” system.  It is not a good practice to have several people handling the cash.  The reason they do not sell bags at the Recycling Center is to avoid conflicting with the stores that are selling for us.  He would not promote it for long-term but perhaps they can give it a try.  Ms. Mayberry agrees.  This may not be successful.  Mr. Hoy is willing to return the product if the Selectboard does not want to give it a try.  Mr. Dalessio does not want to stifle Mr. Hoy’s creativity.  Ms. Mayberry stated that recycling eventually leads people to environmentally safe products.  It is not for personal gain.  The benefit is to the Town.  Mr. Dalessio suggested they give it a three-month trial but if it does not work, then everything should be shipped back.          

Pending Further Actions:

Tax Deeded Property Sale:   This will remain on the agenda list as a Pending Further Action item.

Houghton Brook Bridge:  Mr. Dalessio reported that they will have the estimate next week for the next phase which is the design and permitting.  Fuss & O’Neill feels it will fall within the $500,000 budget.  

Mill Pond Dam Inspection:  The Department of Environmental Services (DES) expects to inspect the dam in 2021.  Mr. Dalessio feels they will have to do the same type of study they did on the Reservoir Dam.  They will get a Letter of Deficiency and then begin to address a plan.    

Reservoir Dam:  Mr. Dalessio advised that the Department of Environmental Services (DES) has the package from Fuss & O’Neill.  All indications are that it is being considered a High Hazard Dam.  It will require a significant amount of work.  Fuss & O’Neill will have to look at all the options.  That should happen in the next three-to-four weeks.  DES requested they move the dam inspection up from 2022 to 2021.  A significant amount of work has already been done at this dam. They expect to receive a smaller letter of deficiencies.

Brownfields Project:  Mrs. Pschirrer reported that they are now out for bid for the Brownfields clean-up project.  It is expected that on April 12th the interested contractors will walk the site.  The old maple tree at the edge of the clean-up area is in bad shape. It is leaning toward two abutters’ houses.  They had it evaluated this week. There is fungus and mold and has holes where animals are living.  It will be removed within two weeks so that it will not hinder the project.  

NEW BUSINESS:

MS-232: Mr. Dalessio moved to approve and sign the MS-232, Report of Appropriations Actually Voted.  Seconded by Mrs. Pschirrer.  Ms. Mayberry asked if there was any discussion.  There was none.  On a voice roll call vote with Mr. Dalessio, Mrs. Pschirrer and Ms. Mayberry in favor, motion was approved.

Walpole Water Department Emergency Plan Guide:  There was a consensus of the Selectboard to go into the office to sign the Walpole Water Department Emergency Plan Guide.

Executive Councilor Invite to Meet:  Cinde Warmington, District 2 Executive Councilor, would like to take a walk in the Town with the Selectboard and see local sites of interest.  Mr. Dalessio suggested scheduling the walk in May or June.  We should also advise that our Broadband project is almost complete.  Mrs. Downing will respond to the request.  

Citizen’s Report Form re: Old Town Garage Property:  Ms. Mayberry reported that a citizen requested a sign for dog owners to pick up after their dogs by the Old Town Garage. Mrs. Pschirrer advised the Walpole Foundation put up the signs on the Common and provide all the bags.  They are used a great deal.  Mr. Dalessio mentioned they get a lot of requests for signs.  If they put one by the Old Town Garage, there are also other locations such as the Drewsville Common.  He is not opposed to the signs but it should apply to North Walpole and Drewsville as well.  It would set a precedent.  Ms. Mayberry asked Mrs. Downing to reply, provide some history on these signs and the Foundation’s donation of the signs and bags at the Common.        

Fall Mountain Regional School District:  Mrs. Pschirrer had a request from Mr. Kraig Harlow, Recreation Director, who had a request from the FMRSD to use the Whitcomb Park for a prom on May 15th.  They would like to put up a tent from 7:00 to 10:00 PM.  They want access to the bathrooms in the pool house and use the electricity.  About 200 people are expected.  Mr. Kraig Harlow would like to give them an answer.  He asked why they are not using some of the fields around the FM High School.  They did not have a response for him.  Ms. Mayberry said the Superintendent was also not aware of why they do not want to use the High School fields.  Mrs. Pschirrer would want it to be well chaperoned.  They would have to set-up and clean-up.  Mr. Dalessio mentioned the Planning Board is asking the Selectboard about having an in-person meeting rather than a Zoom meeting on Tuesday, April 13th as they expect a large turn-out.  Do they open up the Town Hall again for meetings?  There was discussion about wearing masks and keeping appropriate distances.  Mrs. Pschirrer recommended they do some research on what is happening state-wide and make a decision next week.  Mr. Dalessio and Ms. Mayberry agreed.         

NON-PUBLIC SELECTBOARD SESSION:

Mr. Dalessio moved to enter into a Non-Public Selectboard session pursuant to RSA91-A:3 II to discuss (a) Personnel and (c) Reputations.  Seconded by Mrs. Pschirrer.  Ms. Mayberry asked if there was any discussion.  There was none.  On a voice roll call vote with Mr. Dalessio, Mrs. Pschirrer and Ms. Mayberry in favor, the motion was approved at 8:35 PM.

The regular Selectboard meeting resumed at 9:05 PM.

Mr. Dalessio moved that the Minutes of the Non-Public Selectboard Session of March 25, 2021, will be sealed.  Seconded by Mrs. Pschirrer.  Ms. Mayberry asked if there was any discussion.  There was none.  On a voice roll call vote with Mr. Dalessio, Mrs. Pschirrer and Ms. Mayberry in favor, the motion was approved.

ADJOURNMENT:

Mr. Dalessio moved to adjourn this Selectboard meeting.  Seconded by Mrs. Pschirrer.  Ms. Mayberry asked if there was any discussion.  There was none.  On a voice roll call vote with Mr. Dalessio, Mrs. Pschirrer and Ms. Mayberry in favor, the meeting adjourned at 9:08 PM.

Respectfully submitted,

Regina Borden, Recording Secretary

Clarion On-line

The April 2021 CLARION is now at the post office (a day early) and I am posting on-line as well. You can access the on-line copy using the links below.

You may click on the link below
April 2021 CLARION 
or on the image below, and please enjoy.

You will see on page 5 an article – “A Nightmare on Elm Street?” A March 18 Selectboard meeting prompted that article. That night the Road Agent stated his plan to widen Elm Street by eight feet along the Common (most likely on the west side of the roadway) thus removing trees, and damaging root systems of those not removed. At that meeting the Road Agent was asked to return with a plan on April 1. I asked to be involved with that plan, and as yet (March 29) have not been invited.

With this previously unknown plan, I alerted the public to this possible irrevocable desecration of Walpole’s Town Common and surroundings using CLARION and Facebook posts. There were over 1,000 reads of that message in just 36 hours, and as a result about 80 Zoom attendees at the March 25 Selectboard meeting, several attendees hosting several people in the room. Starting the meeting, the Selectboard chair stated no decision had been made. I then read a statement with required studies and recommendations into the minutes. I urge you to click below, and read what I stated.

RAY BOAS
Statement to Walpole, NH Selectboard
25 March 2021

This looming problem has not gone away, studies, and public input are needed before any work is begun. At the March 25 meeting all attendees (save one) indicated they were not in favor of any change to the Common and its surrounding appearance. That one individual, who works for the Road Agent, stated Walpole is no longer bucolic, and the widening and tree removal should go forward.

Please, please, voice your opinions now by email, phone call or visit to the Selectboard office, or a Selectboard member. And, plan to attend the April 1 meeting. The Zoom link will be posted on the Town website ( https://www.walpolenh.us/ ) around 2PM on April 1st – under Residents, then click Town News. I will also share it via CLARION and Facebook posts. Thank you, yours, RAY

PS – My next post (check back tomorrow) will have some good (actually fantastic) news for Walpole, received today, after the April issue was done. That news (and hopefully more on it) will also be in the May issue.

Deadline for the May CLARION is Friday, April 23

Thank you – RAY BOAS, Publisher

COVID by the Numbers, and Other Information—March 28 Edition

Statewide the numbers are up.  The seven-day average of reported cases per 100,000 went from 20.1 last week to 28.2.  Active reported cases went from 2,377 up to 2,766.  Hospitalizations went from 72 to 76.  Statewide deaths went from 18 last week to up to 20 this week.  None of this is good news.

In Cheshire County, the numbers are mixed. Our seven-day average went from 19.9 up to 20.1, with an infection rate that went up from 0.87 to 0.94. Currently active reported cases held steady at 118.  Cheshire County added 104 active cases this week for a total of 3,098 reported cases of COVID to date.  There were 0 new hospitalizations, down from 2 last week.  We lost 2 more of our citizens this week, down from 3 last week.  Most county numbers are growing, but they are growing slower than elsewhere in the state.

The number of active cases in Walpole has held steady at 1-4.  The best news is that Walpole had 0 new cases this week.

The last phases of vaccine registration have been announced, as follows:

Anyone aged 40-49 may register starting Monday, March 29.

Anyone aged 30-39 may register starting Wednesday, March 31.

Everyone aged 16+ may register starting Friday, April 2.

The web site to register is https://www.vaccines.nh.gov or you can call 211.  The good part of the new web site is that you can change your appointment without having to cancel the appointment you already have.

Please keep on taking good care of yourselves, and each other.  Don’t let down your guard.  Be careful out there.

Wear your mask, even when keeping your distance, keep your distance-even when wearing a mask, wash your hands, and keep well.

Selectboard Meeting Minutes – 3/18/21

Selectboard Present:  Cheryl Mayberry; Steven Dalessio; Peggy Pschirrer

CALL TO ORDER: Mrs. Regina Borden, Recording Secretary, called this Selectboard meeting to order at 6:30 PM.  The first order of business will be the Election of a Chair for the 2021-2022 year.

ELECTION OF CHAIR:  Mr. Dalessio moved to appoint Cheryl Mayberry as the Chair of the Selectboard for the 2021-2022 year.  Seconded by Mrs. Pschirrer.  Mrs. Borden asked if there was any other discussion.  There was none therefore she called for a vote.  On a voice roll call vote with Mr. Dalessio and Mrs. Pschirrer in favor, the motion was approved.  Ms. Mayberry abstained from the vote.  

OPENING OF SELECTBOARD BUSINESS MEETING:

Ms. Mayberry called this meeting of the Selectboard via Zoom to order at 6:32 PM.  The Selectboard members are in three separate locations.  Also attending this meeting is Mrs. Sarah Downing, Manager of Administration, in the Walpole Town Hall and Mrs. Regina Borden, Recording Secretary, by telephone at a separate location.  There are two guests present:  Mr. Ray Boas and Mr. Michael Rau, Road Agent.  This meeting is being filmed by FACT-TV.

Public Comments are to be emailed to Mrs. Downing at the Walpole Town Hall or by calling 603-756-3672.  She will display the agenda.  That will be followed by documents as they are being discussed.

Ms. Mayberry called for a voice roll call of the Selectboard present:  Steven Dalesssio was present; Peggy Pschirrer was present and Cheryl Mayberry was present.  This meeting will be in accordance with Virtual Meetings, Emergency Order #12, which has been effective since March 2020.

GRANITE CURBING ON ELM STREET:  Ms. Mayberry advised when the Selectboard first started talking about the Elm Street project about three years ago, Mr. Ray Boas had indicated an interest in purchasing granite curbing to be installed in front of his property.  He has now had discussions with his neighbors about extending the curbing.  Mr. Boas would also pay for granite curbing in front of the Church between his house and the Town Hall.  This year seems like a good year to install granite curbing when the Town will be doing this project.  There is interest in joining with him by some neighbors although he has no commitments.  He is still interesting in purchasing granite curbing from the Town Hall south to his driveway.  He will do his best to try to interest his neighbors to the south of him in doing the same.  Mr. Rau thought it was almost five years ago since they first talked about this.  He had indicated to the Selectboard that granite curbing is more of a nuisance; it does not make the road any safer for the Highway Department.  More plow equipment is damaged.  It does improve the aesthetics.  The road is narrow; it would be beneficial to widen it at least eight feet but to do this would take up a great portion of the green space between the road and the sidewalk.  Widening the road would improve the parking.  There is some curbing in front of the church.  They need to be realistic as the Town is growing.  They should plan on the future and be realistic.  People would like to keep the Town the same, keep the aesthetics.  He is not against the curbing but knows what it could do to their equipment.  Granite curbing looks good but there is another type of curbing that is known as Cape Cod curbing.  Highway equipment could ride up over it.  He is concerned with equipment damage.  Mr. Boas pointed out if anybody knows what is happening in the Common area, it is him.  He has lived here nineteen years.  A really tough spot is by the Town Hall.  In front of the Church and going south there is parallel parking that allows two cars to get by.  He does not know if eight feet is needed.  Three or four feet from the Town Hall down makes it easier but what do they do in front of the Town Hall.  Mr. Rau’s idea is to take all the granite out and have the parking spaces go right up next to the sidewalk with the paved curbing.  It would allow for easier clean-up of the sidewalk.  People could walk from their car right up to the sidewalk.  Mr. Boas asked about the trees.  Mr. Rau replied that most of the trees in front of the Town Hall are dying; there is a good tree in front of the church.  With the road being dug up, he is not sure that they will not damage those trees.  Mr. Boas agrees this is a good time to do things right but they have to figure out what is the right thing to do.  Mrs. Pschirrer is hearing good thoughts and observations and agrees the road needs to be widened but she would like to see a comprehensive plan they can all agree on.  Mr. Mark Houghton is very much involved in this water/sewer project.  The drainage work needs to be done and the road needs to be widened.  She is also concerned about installing curbing two or three houses south of Mr. Boas and then quitting.  Mr. Boas feels trees should be replaced tree-for-tree as they are taken out.  Re-planting trees has to be done in the right spot.  Mr. Rau would agree on replacing trees but some of them are too close together that is why they are not doing as well.  Mr. Dalessio pointed out that they need to have a meeting and get Mr. Houghton involved in this planning so they can work out all the details.  Mr. Rau has kept Mr. Houghton informed of developments.  Mr. Boas asked about the Cape Cod curbing.  Mr. Rau said it is black; similar to paving on the road.  It is easier to repair.  Granite curbing costs about $125/foot to install it; asphalt is half that cost.  If the Town were to install the paved curbing, it would go all the way down the Common. Ms. Mayberry suggested they work on the next steps.  Mr. Rau has been working with Mr. Houghton.  They have been waiting for better weather to meet and walk the site.  Mr. Boas would like to be involved.  After the work session, they will bring a comprehensive plan back before the Selectboard.  Mrs. Pschirrer mentioned the plan should include the water/sewer project, drainage, widening the road, parking, trees, curbing, etc.  They will have a public meeting before the project begins.  Mr. Rau feels they might be able to have a plan for the Selectboard to review in the next two weeks; Thursday, April 1st is the target date.
