Approval of Minutes of March 25, 2014 & April 8, 2014:
Motion by Peter and second by Jeff to approve minutes of March 25, 2014 and April 8, 2014. All in favor. So approved.
New Business:
Bill talked about Shoreline Protection. It hasn’t been officially approved yet. July 1, 2014 it will take effect. He explained the Board would have a choice if they want to do it or not. The State would have to approve that they are capable of doing it. If the State gives them delegation they have to basically do the State’s program. If they get into a situation where they can’t enforce it, the State will step in and help. They could also just hand it over to the State. A motion to enforce or not to enforce would need to be approved by the Selectboard. The Board would need to make a recommendation to the Selectboard.
The Shoreline Protection Bill is based on Maine’s plan.
Sandy made copies of the Report for Committee Conference that Bill provided. Three from the Senate and three from the House negotiated the settlement. It has to go back for each body to vote on.
Peter stated that we need a copy of the completed definitions as Kate interpreted them, decisions on home occupations and the plan for public meetings.
Donna will call Kate to get materials for next meeting.
Old Business: None
Public Comment: None
Motion by Jeff and second by Donna to adjourn PC meeting at 7:15 p.m. All in favor. So approved.
Respectfully submitted,
Sandra L. Trombley, Secretary
