Approval of Minutes of September 30, 2014:
Motion by Jeff and second by Peter to approve minutes of September 30, 2014 as written. All in favor. So approved.
Working Session on Zoning Regulation Revisions
The Board picked up where they left off from the September 30th meeting and continued working through the document.
There was discussion about the difference between a Zoning Board, Planning Commission and a DRB. Diane commented that if the Board felt a DRB board was something they wanted to contemplate for the future; she would advocate inviting Jim Carroll to speak to a joint meeting of this board and the Selectboard about the advantages and/or disadvantages to the Town. There is a statutory process to go through to switch to a DRB. Donna S. thought that in the past that ACRP gave a reason to not become a DRB.
Motion by Jeff and second by Peter to adjourn at 7:40 p.m. to go into ZBA meeting.
Respectfully submitted,
Sandra L. Trombley, PC Secretary
