Richard Krafp made a motion to: approve the minutes of July 5, 2018, as written. Bonnie Moroney seconded and the motion passed with 5 ayes and one abstention. Vice Chair Alex Foti was not at the July 5th meeting.


Dale Lawrie bought 2 properties on Route 115, Tax 407, Lots 51 & 52, which are in the rural zone. Mr. Lawrie inquired about the possibility of putting in a repair shop and had used cars for sale. The rural zone does not allow garages or used car sales even un Special Exception. So he was coming before the board with questions.
Dale Lawrie said/asked:
• One of the property he bought has a garage on it. The property that has the garage has approximately ¾ of an acre and the other has about 13 acres. The two businesses that were run out of the garage property were known as Cherry Mtn.Small Engine Repair and Yardman.
• In the Zoning Ordinance the word “Commercial” is not defined even though the word is used throughout.
• Town’s By-Laws/Zoning Ordinances are messed up
• He has the best lawyer, world renowned
• The lawyer told him that there is a “me too” clause that should apply here. He had defended him in a case in Mass. where this clause was used. It means if someone else in the same situation is allowed to do it, so can he.
• There is a garage in the same zone, Bumper to Bumper and how did he get allowed to run a garage? The town garage is also in the rural district, how did that get in? He believes that Jay Ouellette’s garage, Bumper to Bumper, started around 1986.
• He wants to retire here and have a small business, something his daughters can run later.
The board told him they would get back to him. They needed to do some research and possibly contact their lawyer.


The secretary told the board that Chris Miller, Sr, Technical Architect for bull stockwell allen architects, had emailed her saying there was going to be one more room in the addition at the hotel. She told the board that the motion to approve the addition contained the number of rooms. Having talked to Tara Bamford, Tara told her that the hotel would have to come before the board again with a Site Plan Application, adverting and abutter notices also. The board agreed with Tara and said they would have to go thru the application again. The secretary was to notify Chris Miller.

Richard Krapf made a motion to: adjourn. Bonnie Moroney seconded and the motion to adjourn was unanimous.
