    CALL TO ORDER: Chairman Gary Patnode called the meeting to order at 6:30 pm. Laura Merrifield made a motion to approve the minutes of the January 11, 2016 meeting, seconded by Joe Lewandowski. The minutes were unanimously approved with correction.


    Woodland Acres Expansion-Leslie Casey, representing the Planning Board, brought forward some research she had done regarding how to best proceed with Steve Hamilton’s request to expand his trailer park by ten units. It is the opinion of the Board that Mr. Hamilton’s first step would be to get a special exception from the Board of Adjustment as the part of the park that is already developed is grandfathered under the CPO. Gary will call him and let him know that is how he should proceed and Kate will follow up with a letter.

    Jewett Park-The Conservation Committee in concert with the Planning Board and other committees are looking at ways to make Jewett Park a more useable asset for the town. Leslie Casey gave out a sample survey for feedback from the Board. Gary suggested putting the survey in the newsletter.

    Game of Village-Summer Camp Scholarship- The Board was contacted by Michael Iselin about how to best go about raising the sum of $1950 to provide three Sullivan children scholarships to attend this summer camp based on financial need. It is the decision of the Board that this issue would best fall to the School Board and Kate will advise Mr. Iselin of this.
