of May (6:00 pm or so)—In attendance were Anne, Jacque, and myself of the
Commission, Paul Weston, Town Administrator, Peter Furmanic, Roads and
Peter Webster and Peter Francesco representing the Selectboard. Paul
provided all with a memo of the visit.That memo needs to be corrected to indicate that Commission felt
very strongly about the taking of gravel from Phase I which they believe
to be to intimately related to the prime wetland and suggested that the
other phases be done first. Peter Furmanic agreed that the other phases
would be easier to accomplish because of location.

submitted to the commission by Anne, Jacque and Reggie. Anne moved that
we adopt the document and that the document be submitted to the ZBA at
their hearing.Jacque seconded the

2004—Meeting was held. Lawyers present were Laura Spector for

Waugh for the ZBA. The outcome of the meeting was a postponement until
the 9th of June as two of the ZBA members had to recuse
themselves, leaving less than a full board for the hearing.

see that the Planning Board gets the letter.

ground, could not get the set back from wetland. 1st house
close, but grandfathered, 2nd lot, 125 foot set back with

bars on old mountain road (connecting Perch Pond to 113)—Should we
recommend to selectmen that there be no motorized traffic on class six
roads when not snow covered?? Peter Furmanicsaid that he thought it
would be a simple matter to take a back hoe up from the Perch
Pond Road side and repair water bars. This
sounds like a good idea and we should follow it up with Peter.—We
discussed the matter and decided not to do anything about it at this
time.It was felt that taking a
backhoe up the road might do more damage than benefit. It was thought
that access to the road might be blocked by boulders or something.
tree next to entrance to field house—I’ll write a letter to DOT. Bring
to Paul’s attention and have him remind DOT engineers of the tree. One
of the few “good” elm trees in the area.
