Board Members Present: John Holt, Don Bamman, Perry Fowler, Stewart Workman, Steve Gabel-Richards.

 

Members of the Public Present: Bob Christie, Mike Jordan, Wanda Whitener, Andrea Ames, Fred Stocking, Kathryn Guianguest, Valerie Sprague.

 

Call to Oeder: 7:00 pm

 

Chair Holt provided the public with an introduction to the purpose of the meeting and a brief history of the process involved in arriving at the current proposed amendments. The highlights of the proposed changes were summarized, especially the numerous additions to the sections dealing with vegetation in the shoreland zone. He then asked for public comments.

 

Mike Jordan - expressed total opposition to the inclusion of Springy Brook, Archer’s Brook and the Blunt’s Pond Outflow under stream protection. He stated that none of these met the definition for a stream and were therefore unfair to property owners affected, and unnecessary. Consideration of his comments was placed on the agenda for the February 3 regular Board meeting.

 

There were no further comments.

 

Public Hearing adjourned at 7:11 pm.
