Planning Commission                       June 6, 2006         



PC MEMBERS PRESENT:  G. Heyer, M. Hunziker, A. Lemieux, R. Wimble

Public Present: S. Taylor, Dean Potter


The meeting was called to order by G. Heyer at 7:30PM. The minutes from May 16, 2006 were reviewed.  A. Lemieux made a motion to accept the minutes from May 16, 2006. R. Wimble second. All in favor.


Discussion centered on a request from a local church to allow places of worship in more districts of town, due to the lack of available large tracts of land at an affordable price.  The Planning Commission did not want to rush into a decision that would affect the whole town, and would consider changing permitted or conditional uses when the Town Plan is re-done.


Dean Potter, Fire Chief joined the meeting.  He expressed his concerns on the heights of buildings and on driveway widths and lengths.


Members of the Selectboard will attend the Planning Commission meeting on June 20, 2006 to discuss their recommendations for changes.  The members of the Planning Commission are concerned that the current Sewer and Water Ordinances are working against the current Bylaws, especially in the Growth Center where Professional Services and Businesses are encouraged.


Requiring a Zoning Permit to finish space over a garage on in a basement was discussed.  It was determined that no change will be made at this time.


S. Taylor had written a memo to summarize his meeting with Bill Rose from NRPC.  This was reviewed and each point discussed.  The recommendations on clarifying roads in regards to through traffic verses dead-end roads will need more review. 


9:00 A.Lemieux made a motion to adjourn.  M. Hunziker second.  All in favor.




Respectfully Submitted,

Cathy Raymond, Planning and Zoning Assistant
