    2. Gravel/Site Plan Review Application for MacQuinn (Map 3 Lots 31,33) – According to an e-mail message from Steve Salsbury dated 8/6/13, the applicant is pursuing the required test wells and has gotten quotes in the $55,000 - $65,000 range for this work. They have requested a meeting with the Board to further discuss the project before committing to this expense. The message notes the applicant would like to “discuss conditional approval, overall scope of the excavation and/or possibly phasing the project to lessen the impact..” The Board felt more information was needed prior to discussing this any further. A motion was made by Fowler (Gallagher) directing the Chair to inform the applicant in writing that we are willing to discuss these proposals with them in attendance at a future meeting. Vote: 5-0 to approve
  6. New Business – None.
  7. Other Public Matters - None

Respectfully Submitted,

Donald Bamman, Vice Chair (and temporary secretary in Donaldson's absence)
