                                        Site Review
                                        Condo Units

The secretary will deliver the drawings.


Chairman Scott explained that several years ago the town did belong to the National Flood Insurance Program and somehow we were removed from their rolls. The town would not be eligible for any assistance through Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) if we do not belong. A few questions were asked as to types of growth in the area and it is explained in the Floodplain Development Ordinance. There are some restrictions, but over all the area of non-buildable land is minimal, most can be built on with construction for flood zones as stated in the Ordinance.

Motion was made to accept the ordinance.

                        Lawrence/Arey                   (Passed)

This is on the Ballot for town vote in March. Copies will be available at the Town Hall, Library and at town meeting.

Motion was made to adjourn.

                Arey/Lawrence                   (Passed)

Meeting adjourned at 8:40pm

                                                Respectfully submitted,

                                                Tracy Scott
