Zoning: Nancy completed research on the Dover Road zoning complaint. The property is question was determined to be a grandfathered junkyard. However, the property needs to come into compliance with State RSA’s regarding junkyards. Nancy drafted a letter.

Committees: Nancy will come up with a vacancy listing as we still need members for several committees in town.
