 Approval of Minutes of July 8, 2014 Public Forum:
 Motion by Jeff and second by Bill to approve minutes of July 8, 2014 as writtenAll in favor.  So approved.
Discussion & Plan Next Steps of Zoning Regulation Revisions:
There was discussion whether to have more public meetings for contractors on performance standards and slope development and storm water management.  They would need to amend the grant if they decided not to do these items.
Diane will check with Regional Planning to see if they could offer direction who the Board might contact to explain slope development and storm water management for a public meeting.
Diane brought up the language about utilities to incorporate into the regulations.  Everyone thought they had approved the language for that.
Diane will contact Kate to get the revisions that were sent to Kate and the language about utilities.
Peter shared with Diane that the Board wanted to do some work on the computer in the Town Office. 
Peter asked Diane to consult with Jim Carroll, asking whether they have a logical plan with the idea of editing another town’s by-laws or editing Leicester’s current by-laws.  Once that is answered they will proceed.
 Discussion of Appeal:
 The interested parties list was emailed to the lawyer for the Wellarkes appeal to E-Court. 
 The question was asked who will represent the Town.  In some cases, Jim Carroll has represented the town, the ZA may have.
 It was suggested that perhaps the ZA, David Atherton represent the Town.  No action taken.
 Motion by Jeff to adjourn at 7:30 p.m.
Respectfully submitted,
Sandra L. Trombley
PC Secretary
