Action on the Aforementioned Item. The Board considered each review standard cited in the Shoreland Zoning Ordinance and found the application either meets the criteria or has no relevance (not applicable) to them. A discussion ensued about the number of moorings – proposed and potential. M. Havey proposed the following condition be attached to permit approval:

“The Planning Board stipulates no more than 5 moorings should be established without Board approval – said approval being sought within one year of permit issuance. If Board approval for more than five moorings is sought after one year of permit issuance, the Board may require submission of a new and full application.”

M. Havey moved to grant permit approval (Commercial activity in the Shoreland Zone) with the condition herein stated. L. Landon seconded. The vote was unanimous.
