Minutes of June 11, 2013

Present:  Christa Patterson, Roger Sweet, Eric White, Chip Woodbury and Becky Cummings.

Minutes of the May meeting were accepted as read.

Roger and Becky both attended the recent meeting on the proposed changes to Route 9.  A brief discussion followed.

Roger said the Planning Board has received an application for a driveway permit on Valley Rd. from Robert Donnelly.  The land is across from Mike Carney’s in the old gravel pit area.  He would like to put in a dome house.

Chip said the Ferry Brook Road bridge is coming right along and should be open soon.  

Roger and family hiked up Winch Hill this past weekend and he said he is pleased to see the water bars and ditching that were put in are working very well, even after so much rain.

The NH Coverts Project is seeking candidates and will choose 25 from the applicants.  The Project trains volunteers to promote wildlife habitat conservation and forest stewardship.  

Roger wondered if the commission might be interested in investing the Land Use Change Tax money with the funds the Trustees of Trust Funds are managing.   They include the cemetery trust funds as well as the town capital reserve funds and the investments are making considerably more money than the banks pay in interest.  The committee agreed they (Roger&Chip) should look into it for us.

No meeting will be held in July.

Meeting adjourned at 8:15 pm.

Respectfully Submitted,
Becky Cummings
