Jim looked at the flag/stake placement for Historic Main St. signs. He said the placement is fine. Also if there is something else to use beside the metal breakaway post. Can we use a wooden post?
Lucille went to Flagworks and priced flags. Custom flags are very expensive. We might want to consider American Flags. We are thinking of 3 x 5 size.
We decided to try a flag placement at Joyce's house on Thursday May 25 @ 7:00, to see what size flag we should consider and how the flag will look.
Lucille spoke about the Globe Community Fund 1 million dollar NH Charitable Foundation. Kate will call the NH Charitable Foundation to see what the parameters are.
The Perry-Mann’s have answered the questions that the Board asked. The select board has asked the commission to reply to the comments on the application. The commission will reply to the select board. We will make sure those comments are answered before the public hearing. The select board would like additional information on the easement.
Joyce and Lucille went to the state wide Historic Preservation Conference. They toured the old Sacred Heart Church. Joyce shared how beautifully renovated and how much distinct character each unit had.
Lucille shared a letter from Bob McAnney about the sugar maple trees. We have found homes for all the trees. We need to clean up our trees on Canterbury Rd. We will try to get together and do that soon.
The commission is still identifying in town barns. We will try to do a brochure about "in town" barns
Meeting adjourned @ 8:29.
