IV.  REPORTS
  a. Town Planner's Report
The Planner reported the following items:
* An Administrative Subdivision was approved on Frigate Street for Conti
and Silva.

* The Marksberry Day Care still needs additional information added to the
site plan.  

Commissioner Smith questioned why it was not brought to the Commission's
attention.
      The Planner stated that it is a category "A" Development Plan and
that Jane Weidman made the decision to deal with it administratively.    

The Commission questioned why a bus on North Main Road has been parked
there for so long and if anything can be done about it.
      The Commission requested that the Planner look into why there has
been a bus parked next to the Early Learning Center for so long and if it
can be removed.
  
The Commission discussed writing a letter to the Jamestown Early Learning
Center congratulating them on a good job.
      Commissioner Smith suggested it would not be appropriate protocol
for the Planning Commission.

* Mr. Froberg called the Planning Office and stated he will be bringing in
his final subdivision    plan at the beginning of 1998.

* The Quattrocchi's should be dropping their master plan off to the office
soon regarding          Mackerel Cove Heights.
      Mr. Quattrocchi asked to build a pump house where his well is       
located.  The Planner stated that James Quattrocchi would like the
Commission's feed back on    such a structure.
      The Planner stated she did not see a need for watering the open
space because   only trails through the woods were proposed.
