Planning Commission                       December 5, 2006               



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

Public Present:  Skip Taylor-Zoning Administrator


The meeting was called to order by G. Heyer at 7:00 PM. The Board read the business plan from Jason and Elizabeth Minor. This prompted a discussion about lodging establishments and boarding houses, and which districts they are allowed in.  The topic of retail, lodging,  places of worship and public facilities to be allowed in all districts was also discussed. M. Hunziker feels that the big picture for the Town needs to be reviewed before major changes are made. This subject will be discussed further at the joint meeting with the Planning Commission, the Selectboard, and the Development Review Board.


Hammer-heads at the end of shared driveways were discussed.  G. Heyer would like Skip Taylor to get clarification from the fire chief as to the configuration of a hammer-head, and the minimum width that would be required for fire trucks to turn around. He will also get clarification of how long a driveway needs to be, before a passing zone should be required.


A. Lemiuex made a motion to accept the minutes from November 21, 2006.  M. Hunziker second.  All in favor. 

Discussion continued on various subjects.

9:30PM M. Hunziker made a motion to adjourn.  A. Lemiuex second.  All in favor.


Next meeting will be a joint meeting with the Selectboard and the Development Review Board on December 19, 2006, at 7:00 PM.





Respectfully Submitted,

Cathy Raymond, Planning and Zoning Assistant
