1. Discussion of “Findings”, A & J Pettegrow Shoreland Zoning Permit, Map 8, lot 12-2. The Board discussed a draft of “Findings” and amended it. G. Donaldson moved and S. Branch seconded a motion to accept the “Findings” as amended. Four voted in favor. One abstained.

2. Procedures for Presentation of Changes to the Building & Land Use Ordinance. The Board proposes the following:

  1. Since a town wide mailing is required by the changes sought to the BLUO AND since all townsfolk must be notified of the pending Town Meeting, M. Garrett will ask Stu Marckoon about combining the two notices into a single bulk mailing. The mailing would include a copy of the proposed BLUO changes.
  2. The Board will schedule an “informational meeting” dealing with the changes sought. The meeting will be on February 24, 2004 at the Town Hall beginning at 6:30 pm.
  3. Additional modifications were made to the Building & Land Use Ordinance, changes which, when incorporated, will represent the “cast-in-stone” final edition of the Ordinance to be presented at the Town Meeting on March 3, 2004.

There was none.


Appeals Board Ordinance. M. Garrett is working on a draft ordinance.

Parks Ordinance. Following the Town meeting, the Board will consider the Parks Ordinance drawn by the Conservation Commission.
