July 6, 2017

“These minutes of the Town of Carroll Planning Board have been recorded by its Secretary. Though believed to be accurate and correct they are subject to additions, deletions and corrections by the Planning Board at its next meeting when the Board votes its final approval of the minutes. They are being made available at this time to conform to the requirements of New Hampshire RSA 91-A: 2.

Members Present: Chairman Ken Mills, Bonnie Moroney, Selectman’s Representative Brian Mycko and Karen Saffian and Donna Foster

Members of the Public: Sue Muller, Haley Dumont, Jennille Smith, John Gardiner and Dave Scalley

Minutes taken by: Rena Vecchio, Secretary

Pledge of Allegiance: 7:00 PM


The Chair asked if the board was ready to approve the minutes of May 31, 2017. Brian Mycko made motion to: approve the Planning Board minutes of May 31, 2017. Bonnie Moroney seconded and the motion passed with all aye’s and one abstention from Donna Foster.


Sue Muller was before the board as an agent for Angie Dumont who could not be at the meeting. Sue Muller is the Manager of the Bretton Woods Irving. Sue and the owners of the Irving station agreed to put in an ice cream concession stand. They have a State approved Concession License that they have through the store. Hayley Dumont, who was present, is the daughter of Angie and will be running the concession. Questions were asked by the board and answered by Sue:
• The stand will be on the same side as the snowmobile rentals or the right hand side of the building,
• The stand will be like a fair trailer/concession stand
• They already have picnic tables
• They have plenty of parking and people will have to walk to the stand. There will be no parking in front of it.
• Stand will be taken before winter season.
• People do not drive around the building. Her vehicle basically blocks off the drive around.
• People will be able to use the restrooms in the store.
• Stand would close 1 hour before the store did.
Bonnie Moroney said they would need a letter from the owner of the Irving Station and they would need a map of the area, the store, the location of the concession stand, driveway and parking. .


Jennille Smith introduced herself and said she works for Mobilitie. They are building a wireless network also in rural areas with roaming and dead zones. Right now they are proposing an area on Route 302, across the street from the motor Lodge, on the DOT Right of Way. The tower would be a 120’ monopole. Sprint has asked them to look into this area as there is a 3 mile area of a dead zone. This would run off of microwaves and it is very fast. A 120’ tower would usually cover 3 miles and a 90’ tower should cover about 2 miles. Mobilitie also tries to accommodate the local fire and police on the pole.
Jennille mentioned that they had picked three other roads that she thought were owned by the town that they were all. Chairman Mills told Jennille that there would be a Third Party Review that would be paid by the applicant. This would give them more information. The board would look at the application for a cell tower and then require a Third Party Review.
The Chairman said to make sure you have resolved the site you want and have everything ready so the town can deal with what they need.


The Chair said he did not think the board had voted on John Gardiner as an alternate for the PLBD. Brian Mycko made a motion to: nominate John Gardiner as a Planning Board alternate for one year. Karen Saffian seconded and the motion passed unanimously.


Chairman Mills asked the Selectman’s Representative, Brian Mycko, if the contract from North Country Council for doing the Site Plan Regulations and Subdivision Regulations had been signed yet. Brian said he was not aware that they had signed that yet. Ken said he wanted to make sure that got going and they could move forward with the updating and correcting of the regulations. Brian said the Selectman have asked all departments to curb any unnecessary spending. Ken Mills said that is not a problem but he wants these regulations done. The board also put money away $5000.00 for the Zoning Ordinance also. They were going to look into where the contract was.

Dave Scalley brought in “final as built” plans for the property on which 2 new apartment buildings would be built. His Site Plan was approved last September, 2016. The approved plan showed the apartment buildings and driveway facing in one direction and the new plan had the apartments moved around because of the septic system.
The problem the board saw was that the new plan was not signed and dated and did not know if that required a new public hearing and noticing. The 2016 plan was signed and dated but would not match the Mylar.
The board asked the secretary to contact New Hampshire Municipal Association to see what would have to be done if anything.

Brian Mycko made a motion to: adjourn. Bonnie Moroney seconded and the motion passed. The meeting ended at 8:30 PM.
