Minutes - October 1, 2015 (Draft, subject to correction)

  1. Meeting called to order by Fred Stocking @ 6:34 pm.  Attended by Fred Stocking, Bonnie Marckoon, Valerie Sprague, Kathie Gaianguest & Bob Christie.   Added agenda item to include setting the date for the December 2015 meeting.

  2. Consideration of 9-3-15 meeting minutes.  Moved and seconded by Bob and Valerie.  Passed 5-0.

  3. Report on survey responses to date:  6 have asked for personal delivery, take mailing cards & paper surveys to meetings with groups as some residents did not receive the mailing.  Appears to be a few quirks with input to the on-line survey with questions #4 &5 and possible double counting.

  4. Meetings with groups:  Low turnout for meeting with Planning Board.  Add meetings with School Committee, Fire Dept., shellfish committee, Parks Commission, Tax Assessors.  Meeting with Friends of Lamoine can be 11-18-15 @ 6:30 to be scheduled at the Town Office.  Bob Christie to check if State Park has availability to meet with us.  Bob will also contact Mark Greene at WHCA.  Val will set a meeting time with the Recreation Committee.  Some discussion about the meeting with the school community.  How to include everyone, but have manageable group sizes.  Val will also call the Snowmobile Club.  Lamoine’s Little Children is set for 10-15-15 @ 4 pm at the school.  Fred reviewed the format of the meetings and it seems to be working well.

  5. Discussed a larger Town Meeting for December.  Timing may or may not be great to get the best turn-out.  Possibly in January w/ survey results and break-out groups to discuss challenges and what Lamoine wants to be.

  6. A look ahead:  Fred wants to begin “Constructing the Plan” to be ready for Town Meeting in 2017.  We should look to the Hancock County Planning Commission to for their assistance in putting our plan together.

  7. Next meetings November 5th, 2015 & December 10th, 2015 @ 6:30 pm

  8. Meeting adjourned 7:50 pm

Respectfully submitted,

Bonnie Marckoon
