1. Town Planner’s Report

Commissioner Girard also informed the Planning Commission that the Comprehensive Community Plan was formally approved and a presentation was made at the last Town Council meeting. Town Planner Lisa Bryer stated that at the next Affordable Housing Committee meeting on June 24th the consultant will be presenting a plan for the public to see and comment on.

3. Sub Committees
V. Old Business
Commissioner Girard asked Lisa to make comments on the proposed changes that are in red brought about after meeting with the Building Official, Dick Pastore, Gary Girard and the Town Solicitor Larry Parks. Town Engineering consultant Dick Pastore explained the difference between minor and major repair (functionality). Commissioner Brown stated that if it cannot be made functional then there has to be something on record to be major repair or upgrade of the system with a new design. The issue was discussed of what information should be submitted in order to make a determination of whether a parcel is in the overlay district. Solicitor Parks said to leave it this way to give the building inspector latitude and he can then make decision. An applicant can submit soil evaluation sheets and Fred will make a determination. The major change to the ordinance would make the Planning Commission the permitting authority. This would streamline the permitting process for applicants requiring them to only appear in front of one board. Commissioner Hubbard asked how the Town Planner Lisa Bryer does her job with regards to sub district b administrative approvals (what information is required to be submitted). Commissioner Hubbard wants a land development plan with all the information required for A applications including the 500 foot radius map, for every application and the ordinance says it is not necessary for sub-district B administrative approvals. A discussion ensued regarding whether applications should have DEM approval prior to Town application. The Planner reported that all applicants so far have come in to us after DEM approval.
Commissioner Hubbard made a motion to forward this to the Town Council and this was seconded by Commissioner Calabretta. So unanimously voted.
VI. New Business – nothing at this time
A motion to adjourn was made by Commissioner Calabretta and seconded by Commissioner Holland at So unanimously voted.
