Members of the Public: Ben Oleson, Evan Karpf, Jason & Mary Sullivan,

Minutes taken by: Rena Vecchio, Secretary

Pledge of Allegiance: 7:00 PM

This meeting on May 31, 2017 will be considered the June PLBD meeting. Due to conflicts in availability for the June 1st meeting, it was decided at the May 4th meeting that May 31st worked for all. Since then an appeal of a PLBD decision was made to the ZBA so no discussion on Sullyville LLC would take place till further notice.

APPROVAL OF MINUTES
The Chair if there were any corrections to be made to the minutes of May 4th. There were none. Bonnie Moroney made a motion to: approve the minutes of May 4, 2017 as written. Karen Saffian seconded and the motion passed unanimously.

NOMINATION AND VOTE OF PLBD ALTERNATE
Chairman Mills told the board that Alessandro Foti had shown an interest in joining the Planning Board and that he would entertain a motion. Brian Mycko made a motion to: nominate as an Alternate to the Planning Board Alessandro Foti for a 3 year term. Karen Saffian seconded and the motion passed unanimously.

TRAINOR’S ORDER FOR DATA PRESERVATION
Next Chainman Mills informed the board that the Town and Planning Board had received a letter from Sheehan Phinney, Counsel for Joseph and Lisa Trainor for “Re: Application of Sullyville, LLC and Information Concerning the Property Known as Beech Hill Campground: Data Preservation.” (a hard copy of the letter will be attached to the minutes in the office.) All board members have been directed to save all cell phone data, emails/message contents attachments etc. Discussion was on how much of their personal media items the board members would be losing if this case goes to court. The letter actually stated that “there was near certainty of civil litigation arising.” The board discussed not having the PLBD contact them on their cell phones, personal emails, personal and work computers, etc. The Chair said that more discussion would be taking place at a later date. So far Richard Karpf, Bonnie Moroney and Karen Saffian have asked to have no more communication to their personal emails and other items.

REVIEW OF SITE PLAN REGULATIONS by BEN GAETJENS-OLESON, NORTH COUNRTY COUNCIL
A Review of the Town’s Site Plan Regulations had been set up last year and had been started in October, 2016. Nothing has been done by the PLBD since then. (Attached will be the copy from Ben over the changes and corrections he could see going thru the Regulations. )
It was decided that the board wanted Ben to continue finishing the review. Ken was going to call North Country Council to get things moving towards a contract for this. The cost to have this and the Subdivision Regulations done was put in the 2017 budget and passed in March.

ADOPTING OF THE PLANNING BOARDS RULES OF PROCEDURE
Ken Mills said he had submitted changes of the Procedures at the April 6th meeting. He asked if anyone had anything to add or change. They did not.
Bonnie Moroney made a motion to: adopt the Rules of Procedure as amended and discussed at the April 6, 2017 meeting. Karen Saffian seconded and the motion passed unanimously. (A hard copy will be attached to the minutes in the office.)

OTHER
Evan Karpf wanted to make sure that the approval of his Site Plan at the last meeting stated for “Change of Use”. The secretary and Chair both stated that when that was mentioned Evan said that the ZBA would give him the Change of Use, therefore it was not part of the approval or minutes.

Chairman Mills said that North Country Council asks participating towns to have representation. He said that Evan Karpf has been the Representative and is willing to stay on. The Chair said he would entertain a motion.
Karen Saffian made a motion to: nominate Evan Karpf to represent the Town of Carroll at the North Country Council meetings. Bonnie Moroney seconded and the motion passed unanimously.

Bonnie Moroney made a motion to: adjourn the meeting. Brian Mycko seconded and the motion passed unanimously.
The meeting ended at 9:15.
