Lamoine Veterans Memorial Committee

Minutes - March 21, 2007

The Lamoine Veterans Memorial met on March 21, 2007 . Meeting called to order at 710 pm by Jo and approved minutes from February 21st , 2007 .

Members: Jo Cooper, Reggie McDevitt, Marion and Walt McFarland, Skip Smith and Kathleen De Fusco.

Public present: Jay Fowler.

Jo will bring to the Selectmen our request to become an appointed committee.

Our guest speaker, Jay Fowler, stated there would not be a problem with placing the Memorial near the septic system. Other issues brought up about the Memorial site placement. Jay stated he would donate base material and add more parking area on Butler side. Jo asked Jay if he would like to become a member of our group and he accepted.

Several of our residents have brought to our attention that the Flag side of Town Hall would not be a quiet side for the Memorial. If someone wanted to sit and reflect, traffic and noise pollution would interfere. The North side of Town Hall would be more appropriate. Skip stated the Pinkhams Flat road is a dangerous intersection and adding someone looking at the Memorial might cause problems. With the changes being made in Ellsworth's Main Street traffic pattern, traffic will increase in that area and add to that problem area. Lamoine will be used as a SHORTCUT and our concern is the safety of people wanting to reflect at the Memorial.

At the next meeting, we will devise a plan and possibly figures. Reggie will contact Weininger Monuments to stop in at the next meeting.

Next meeting scheduled for April 25th , 2007 @ Town Hall.

Meeting adjourned at 820 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Kathleen De Fusco, Sec'y
