of the ZBA meeting held 9 June
2004—meeting will be continued on the 13th of
July. Jacque presented our memo to the ZBA. That memo was amended to
change the information about the distance from the wetland edge and information
was added about the angles of the gravel pit edges. Barbara brought up
the question about the changes in the document after approval of original
at last meeting.Jacque apologized
about the changes, but indicated that she was unable to get back to
commission members before submitting document to the ZBA. It was moved by
Reggie and seconded by Anne, that Commission retroactively approved the
changes. After a briefly discussion where questions were brought up about
the idea of the 75 foot distance were brought up by Mike, the commission
voted 6-0 in favor of the motion. The commission members informally
agreed that it was better to extend the buffer distance rather than to
simply go along with the 25 ft distance of DES.

gravel pit—It seems like early evenings on Wednesday will be the best
time.Chair will contact Earl

nothing in the mail box.

meetings with Roger LaRochelle on conservation easements—Chair has
contacted some local folk. It looks like an end of the summer will be
better for a joint meeting of Roger and the chair and these folk. It was
brought up that Alex has bought the property above the Pilote property.

for the NHACC newsletter—Anne has been extremely busy, but will still
write up some news items.
